Best Engines of SEMA 2019 Day 3 #MTSEMA19

Day Three of the SEMA Show

John Lehenbauer
Nov 12, 2019

To find some of the cleverest, ingenious, and outrageous engine builds in the world on the third day of the Specialty Equipment Market Association's 2019 show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, we battled our way through the endless aisles and hordes of attendees. The engines we found were scattered about the show, many of them mounted in amazingly creative automotive builds.
