Traditionally Ford has had the largest presence of any auto manufacturer at the show. They had "Ford Out Front" which took up a huge open paved area which they used for exhibition driving, and a huge main stage indoors. Honda has also pulled out and there are rumors that GM is doing the same.

It will be interesting to see what SEMA will come up with to take the place of "Ford Out Front".

Not profitable? If sema cost more then they gain then it would be a financial decision

When you can't keep up with sales, it kinda makes sense . Things are silly

This is what I was thinking. If they can't supply a product why continue to heavily promote the product?

That sounds ominous. If they really did back out due to very low production estimates, that could point to a much worse economy than we have right now. That's very scary. This lack of supply issue should be improving, not getting worse(and it's pretty bad now).
