This is a part of the SEMA show that we never get to stay for: on Friday afternoon, all the show cars (at least those that can run and drive) roll out and hit the Las Vegas Strip for a mega cruise. It's a fantastic spectacle, and Jesse and Brandan from Hot Rod stayed on to witness it. Check out their huge gallery and see if you can see your favorite SEMA ride cruising out.

Rob already covered the Mopar booth. But working for Hot Rod at this year's SEMA, I thought I'd finally be off the hook for cranking booth overviews. But no, Freiburger wanted them too! Good thing I had some practice. And it was definitely good to see all the domestic makes taking a turn back toward the enthusiasts this year, foregoing seas of Sonics and Focii (though there were those) for some actual muscle. It seemed like both Ford and Chevy bucked the trend from the last couple years of blah booths by getting back to their performance roots, Ford with hot rod heritage and the General with bolt-on upgrades for the newer vehicles. There was still also the unfortunate trend toward celebrity-designed rides: Mopar had that Challenger blessed by some goofball comedian, and the Guy Fieri 427 Corvette meant that I had to see way more of that dude's spiky, sweaty head than I ever wanted to at the GM soiree on Monday night. But then again I got to meet Tony Stewart, who had a Smoke-endorsed Camaro at the show, and that wasn't so bad. Take a walk through the Ford booth and the Chevy booth over at Hot Rod!

For me one of the best parts about going to SEMA is catching up with old friends. I got to see John Coyle (pictured below), who used to work for us and now works for LS1Tech. I got to hang out with my buddies from Grassroots Motorsports. I got to see my old friend Brian Fox over at BASF. I saw Larry Chen, who used to shoot all our SEMA event pics--now he shoots for Speedhunters and Hot Rod. I hung out with Topo a bit over at the DUB booth. And before flying home I got to talk to Jonathan Ward of Icon and hear about all the cool stuff he is working on.

It was also a great opportunity to get to know the awesome crew at Hot Rod. Thanks to David Freiburger, Elana Scherr, Jesse Kiser, Brandan Gillogly and Julia Cyr for all the great coverage. All in all, it was a super fun show and I'm already looking forward to next year.

So, you want all your SEMA pics in one place instead of having to scroll through all our awesome SEMA coverage on Autoholics? Done. We've got the most comprehensive SEMA 2012 galleries on the web. You can start with our pics from roll-in on Sunday, then check out our Day 2 gallery (mostly trucks), our Day 3 gallery (all the crazy stuff in Wheel and Tire), Day 4 (the Performance hall shot for us by Hot Rod's Jesse and Brandan), and the final day shot by Rob, which included a lot of the coolest stuff outside the Convention Center. Enjoy!

So what were the four hottest vehicles at the show this year? A simple count will tell you, and SEMA did just that for their annual SEMA Award. None of these were a big surprise. And between the Mustang and F-series, Ford definitely dominated the show.

Hottest Car: Ford Mustang
Hottest Sport-Compact: Scion FR-S
Hottest 4x4-SUV: Jeep Wrangler
Hottest Truck: Ford F-Series

I love this thing. Maybe it's the color. Or the stacks. Built by Bob Ream of Imagine Injection, Inc. More pics after the jump!

One of my favorite FR-S builds at the show is this beautiful green car in the Source Interlink booth. The Rocket Bunny wide-body kit looks great and I love the white BBS wheels. Phase 2 of the project is complete but there is lots more to come. You can read about this car at garagefrs.com and see more pics after the jump!

Check out this cool little mid-engine, RWD two-seater designed around Subaru WRX running gear. The finished car weighs in at a just 1,800 pounds and the kit will sell for $9,900. See all the info on the Factory Five booth over at Hot Rod

Honestly, this year's Mopar booth was not that inspiring. The Challenger pictured below was designed by comedian Jeff Dunham. Huh? Anyway, you can see my writeup and more pics at Hot Rod
