West Coast Customs

The world-famous West Coast Customs (WCC), renowned vehicle customizers and producers of the hit vehicle-build reality TV show West Coast Customs, on FOX Sports Networks (FSN) is taking on SEMA with the return of the West Coast Customs Experience booth #11293 located behind North Hall near registration. The West Coast Customs booth will be over the top with famous rides from the TV show, celebrity builds and the return of the West Coast Customs Experience where SEMA show attendees get a chance to build vehicles during the show with the West Coast Customs crew.

?The West Coast Customs booth will be larger and more extreme than previous SEMA shows,? said Ryan Friedlinghaus, CEO of West Coast Customs. ?We promised our fans that we would return to SEMA in a big way and well the booth and the builds speak for themselves. My crew has been working hard all year to bring these vehicles from rendering to reality and now SEMA show attendees can see first-hand the West Coast Customs gallery of vehicle art.?

This must-see booth will not only bring the West Coast Customs lifestyle to life but it also features some of our most prized works of vehicle art. This year we partnered with Chrysler as part of our continued relationship to showcase a one-of-a-kind 2013 Chrysler 300 decked out in all black chrome as well as the 2012 Chrysler 300s which will be given away by eBay Motors. Some of our infamous celebrity rides will be on display including vehicles from Justin Bieber, Will.I.AM, rapper Tyga and Guns and Roses lead guitarist Dj ASHBA. To top off the booth we are featuring Cracker Jack’d distinctive RV complete with water-filled dunk tank.

The WCC team will also be on hand building out Chryslers in the booth as part of the West Coast Customs Experience. SEMA show attendees will have the opportunity to build live during the show customs vehicles with our top vehicle modifier master minds Kenny Pfitzer and Ish. Ryan will also be unveiling in the BASF booth Nov. 5 at 2:30 p.m. his latest build which was built for his son Lil Ryan. Lil Ryan’s turning 16 years old and the latest creation from WCC featuring a new custom paint color WCC Whitegold. This BASF exclusive will be setting the trend for new paint styling.
