bonspeed Wins GM Design Award at SEMA 2007

SEMA has grown to such a size that even a die-hard car guy can push overload! This is the show that has thousands of top quality cars, trucks and exotics. Industry heavyweights are rubbing elbows with auto executives and everyone is looking for that extra something...somthin'.

bonspeed "the california speed and design studio" and wheel manufacturer came to SEMA with seven new wheel styles, a new booth , a new catalog and a 2008 GMC Sierra. We left with tons of new business, some stories that are better left in Vegas and the GM DESIGN AWARD!

The GMC Sierra was designed and constructed at the bonspeed shop with some expert assistance from our partners. The truck arrived about five weeks before SEMA and we immediately tore it apart. After choosing the paint colors of; Dupont's Kandy Sunset with a Kandy Apple Red stripe over a black base we added the tan pinstripes. The paint was completed at L&G Paint in San Dimas, CA. The pinstripes were laid down by Theresa who has mad skills!

Thanks to all of our partners and the skilled people who assisted us in making the truck a reality.
