Honest confession alert. If I’m being completely open, I—and I think several other 0-60 staffers—feel a little guilty about being at SEMA right now. As a bunch of New Yorkers, it’s hard to not be a bit uncomfortable checking out six-figure custom cars, going for rides with Vaughn Gitten Jr. and Ken Block and eating steak dinners while our city digs itself out from the worst natural disaster to hit it since before Henry Hudson said, “Hey, this looks like a nice spot.”

But here we are, and since we’re here, we shall keep calm and carry on. What else can we do?

And since you can’t make it out here, we offer up this photo gallery as a bit of escapism from these trying times we find ourselves in. We wish you were here; we wish we were there. But as they say here in Vegas, the hand you’re dealt is the hand you’re dealt.
