By Nostalgia Drag World
Nostalgia Drag World decided to leave the cold rainy Midwest and take a trip to sunny Las Vegas to spend a day at the 2019 SEMA show. This year’s show event was even bigger and better than ever. Attendance by both manufactures and attendee’s was up considerably. Here are a few highlights.
