Every single year when we get to Vegas for the SEMA show, we piss and moan about the terrible Sunday-afternoon lighting conditions. And every single year, it doesn't stop us from taking a million photos. Check them out!

These pre-show shots are probably the only views we're going to get of it this week with the top up. But top-up views of any convertible are always telling, especially since it's so hard to get the proportions right on a car that wasn't "meant" to be a 'vert in the first place. Though fit and finish seem to be pretty decent (but you never really know until you get it out on the highway: how's the wind noise?), I'm not sure the overall convertible look completely suits the new Camaro. What do you think, did they get it right? One thing they absolutely nailed it on: the green-blue pearl metallic paint. Way more hot in person than in these photos. More views below the jump!

We all have a list of every car, and truck we'd want and have if we had the money, the storage space, and the spousal consent. So what's on your ultimate vehicular wish list? Mine is below the jump.

Hey, where is everyone?? Chris and I touched down in Las Vegas this afternoon and headed straight to the convention center to start checking out the cars that are rolling in for this year's SEMA show. As usual, there's a ton of absolutely sick sheetmetal (and fiberglass and carbon fiber) in the concourse outside Central hall. Judging from what's out here (and it's not exactly a representative sample), there's a few trends we're predicting are going to be hot at SEMA this year. We'll go into them in more detail in forthcoming posts, but here's the Cliff's Notes: 1. Widebody everything. 2. Variations on flat paint. 3. Fitment is everything. 4. Exotic flames. 5. Domestic muscle is still going strong. 6. Trucks are more extreme than ever. Chris is our photog this year and is going to have a ton of first-day pics up on CarDomain shortly, so stay tuned.

It’s been said that aside from sky diving, riding a motorcycle is the closest thing one can do to emulate the feeling of flying. With this I have to agree, but there are definitely those who try and take it to the next level. Take this customized cruiser for example, a bike that has the ability to transport its owner right into the cockpit of a Mig-21. With its twin air intakes, full-on canopy up front and twin jet ports in the rear, this big rig is probably one of the more imaginative rides I’ve seen in awhile.

A month or two ago I was at a local car show here in Lebanon, TN called "The Redneck Rumble." The show is mainly for pre-62 hot rods, rat rods, choppers and that sort of stuff. I was walking when I seen this. I think there was more engine than car, it was bad a%$$....What do you think?

As far as wheels go, I'm sure we've all had some stock steelies at some point on our cars.  Heck, they're tougher than nails, and need no real care or attention.  If you don't like them, you can just put on hubcaps.

It's exactly because of their classic style and resistance to normal wear and tear that steelies have become more and more popular recently as an aesthetically pleasing wheel option. Of course, there will always be the '32 Fords and T-Buckets cruising around with colored steelies and dogdish hubcaps. But the ones I'm talking about are the widened variety.Hit the jump to see more!

Toyota's unintended accelleration problem is back in the news, and it seems like every time it re-emerges things go from bad to worse. The newest lawsuit cites Toyota for secretly buying back cars that had flawed electronic throttle controls, and for requiring their owners to sign strict confidentiality agreements to keep them from discussing the defective vehicles. The suit further alleges that the automaker was in fact able to replicate the unintended accelleration problem that became infamous last year, but that it obfuscated rather than reported these results.

If these allegations turn out to be true, it's hard to see how Toyota can possibly recover, given how highly safety and accountability are prioritized in this business. How much farther can this company stray from the ideals of safety and reliability that it once stood for? More info about the mess in Steve Gorman's article at Yahoo News.

Well it’s that time of year again, the time when everything creepy, frightening and scary comes out to play. You see this coming Sunday is Halloween, and what better way to celebrate it than to provide you guys with a top ten list of the worlds scariest cars. These are cars that if behind you, cause your hands to tremble and your knees to go weak. They are automobiles that look so aggressive and nasty that their designers should have sought counseling before releasing them to the public. These are the cars of Halloween, the cars that Satan, Dracula and hell, even Darth Vader would drive it they went out to trick or treat. They are not to be taken lightly and if by chance you do see them on the open road, my suggestion would be to simply pull over and let them pass. This years list consists of cars from all over the world, which just goes to show you, that automakers everywhere love Halloween. Read the rest over at Ridelust.com
