The Scion Road to SEMA – powered by Car Guy Nation, is a project that will take one Scion FR-S on a journey from New York to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Car Guy Nation will be modifying a Scion FR-S with a number of parts and upgrades from various vendors, with the only requirement being that it remain both drivable and reliable. Upon completion of the build, they will be driving the FR-S across the country, stopping for a number of events along the way.
The project started back in April, when Allan Greenfield and Roger Garbow of Car Guy Nation spoke to Steve Jardine of Johnstons Toyota/Scion in New Hampton, NY about collaborating on a Scion FR-S project car for SEMA. However, because SEMA is an industry show, the number of people who would actually be able to see it would be relatively limited. So, to ensure that car enthusiasts would be able to take a look at it as well, the trio decided to drive the car to Las Vegas themselves instead of flying it out.
Car Guy Nation will be providing periodic updates from the road on their way to SEMA. Their updates will cover everything from the events that take place to their feedback on their Scion FR-S build. Johnstons Toyota/Scion is hosting the launch party for the event on October 20th as they prepare the car for the 2600 mile trip to Las Vegas.
