SEMA show in Vegas 2005

SEMA 2005, MrTruck and MrHemi reporting.

We camped at Circus Circus KOA campground as part of my review of the 06 Featherlite SURV toy hauler. As our SEMA HQ, the trailer worked well & we we’re within fat boy walking distance to buffet & slot machines. This is the only RV park on the strip. SEMA show in Vegas 2005.

SEMA Accessories

Kimberly-Clark, I use their shop towels and now I’m trying their “Grip” gloves. They work for around the shop and I keep a pair in the diesel pickups for fuel fill ups. WD-40, a house hold name for penetrating oil, even arthritis. New “No Mess Pen” to touch just where you want it without a spray mess. And new straw for WD-40 cans. (You know the one you usually loose) Folded down it shoots a mist, folded out, it’s the pinpoint straw we all use. I carry Slime and their air compressor in my tool box. It works. Something new. I used the “Hell Ya” towing the Featherlite back from Vegas. It did keep me from bottoming out the tongue jack on dips and I noticed a difference on curves. The whole story coming.


The year for Big Trucks at SEMA. SportChassis joins International with a large display

A year ago at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Ohio,  I was doing circle contests with the SportChassis M2 and the GMC Denali Quadrasteer. Of course the Quadrasteer won. But when I shut off the 4-Wheel Steer, the Freightliner SportChassis M2 won. When means the M2 can turn tighter than just about any truck.

And little and big duals

Incredible interiors

Colors where vivid
