California Congresswoman and Industry Supporter

U.S. Representative Norma Torres (D-CA) shares SEMA’s passion for classic vehicles, as she enjoys driving a ’66 Ford Mustang that her husband Louis restored (he’s currently fixing up a classic Ford truck). As shown above, Rep. Torres visited the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar, California, for a tour provided by SEMA CEO Mike Spagnola (right). She recently gave a keynote address to SEMA members in Washington, DC, during a reception and dinner at the Waldorf Astoria following a full day of meetings on Capitol Hill. Earlier this year, Rep. Torres was instrumental in encouraging officials to finalize the long-awaited, SEMA-led federal turn-key replica car law. She is also amongst the 133 House co-sponsors of the RPM Act.
