This year’s SEMA show saw a fantastic showing of not only our customer’s RS equipped rides, but a great showing of Roadster Shop built vehicles.

We were honored to have been involved with 3 full builds for our partners at Mr Gasket, General Motors and Craftsman, with the debut of each of their vehicles at the SEMA show. Not only was it an honor to be involved with the projects, but we were delighted to receive a host of awards for all of these vehicles!

Simply a coincidence that some of the coolest rides at this year’s SEMA show also sport Roadster Shop chassis?

Off to Auction

With the truck now complete, the final destination is the auction at Barrett-Jackson where the proceeds will go to Heroes at Home and the keys to a lucky new owner.

Tuning the Engine

On this episode of Restoration Rollout 2013,we take the truck over to to LRS Performance Inc to tune all aspects of the engine before it hits the Barrett-Jackson car auction.

Final Checklist

The C-10 truck is close to completion, but first we have to make sure everything is double checked and ready to go. See what is involved in this latest episode.

Wheels and Tires

The right wheel and tire package can not only alter the look of a vehicle, but is also a major factor in handling and performance. See what we chose for the pickup.
