The SEMA Show is one of the MOST important automotive trade shows in the world.  It gathers the industry’s businesses, people and products at one place.  That place was the Las Vegas Convention Center in November 2013 and West Bend Dyno was there.  WBD’s 1980 Trans Am shop car (above) was there too.  If fact, the Trans Am was voted one of the 17 coolest muscle cars at the show and was featured in the March 2014 issue of Popular Hot Rodding magazine.
