Video Shows Two “Million Dollar” Builds Crashing Inside SEMA Show
Each year, the highly anticipated SEMA convention brings together the biggest names in the automotive world to a single central location, offering a grand spectacle of the finest vehicles the industry has to offer.
At SEMA, every participant aims to present their absolute best, and this pursuit means that builders spare no effort in crafting cars that are nothing short of extraordinary. This often entails investing thousands of hours of labor and substantial sums of money to create automotive masterpieces that are beyond reproach.
However, the road to showcasing these pristine creations at the convention is not without its challenges. Keeping the vehicles in impeccable condition and protecting them from curious fingerprints can be a demanding task. Regrettably, accidents can still happen, regardless of how careful everyone might be.
In a recent incident that unfolded during the 2023 SEMA show, as documented by TikTok user @spokesandvogues, we witness a dramatic mishap. The video captures a 1967 Pontiac GTO rolling backward at a significant speed within the show area. The swiftness of the Pontiac’s movement suggests a malfunction may have caused it to move in reverse.
Tragically, the car could not be halted in time and collided with a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado to the tune of a deafening crunch amidst a sea of panicking bystanders. While the collision occurred at a relatively low speed when compared to a highway accident, it was still a devastating moment for both vehicles involved. The caption accompanying the video estimates that both cars held a combined value of at least $1 million. This estimation does not stretch the imagination, considering the caliber of cars showcased at the SEMA show.
