It's finally here, SEMA 2019! This huge automotive aftermarket show hasn't even begun yet, but HOT ROD is already here and giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what's in the Las Vegas Convention Center at SEMA before the doors open. The outdoor move-in gallery will be coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

Each year, right around Halloween, the world of automotive everything converges Las Vegas, Nevada, for the biggest aftermarket car show south of the North Pole. This is the place to be if you want to see the latest trends and newest parts. Oh, and who could forget that some of the most renowned hot rod and custom car builders tend to show up and unveil their hottest new builds every year at the show. We'll be at SEMA 2019 all week, bringing you the best SEMA-related gearhead content which will show up right here on the HOT ROD Network.

Come back in the coming days for more galleries and videos from the show, but for now here's your very first look inside the Las Vegas Convention Center. Cars are already showing up and vendors are working feverishly to get their display booths ready for the big week. Although many of our favorite hot rods were hidden under car covers until their reveal in a couple days, we still managed to snap a few pictures of some trucks, Mopars, Chevys, Fords, and whatever else was sitting on the show floor. Enjoy!
