    It was cool to have Wayne Carini and Bill Carini from “Chasing Classic Cars” visit our booth along with our good friend Jo Coddington.


    It didn’t take long for the Factory Five booth to draw a crowd.

    Day 2 Photos

    This year we are joined by a huge contingent of Factory Five customers and customer cars. All together we’ve got almost 20 people helping out in our massive 20′ x 80′ booth located just behind KONI Shocks in the main hall between Ford and GM. Here’s some pics as the doors opened for day 2 of the show.


    The new ’35 Hot Rod Pick-Up Truck is ready for today’s crowds to check it out.


    Erik Treves’ Gen 3 Type 65 Coupe build is already a fan favorite!


    The crowds are starting to fill the Factory Five booth as day 2 of the SEMA Show is underway.




    A Factory Five ’33 Hot Rod is featured in Cover King’s booth with a new car cover we are working on featuring the ’33 chassis.

    Yesterday, as I was covering up #007 '33 Street Rod for the winter, I was saying to myself what a tired looking cover it was. I bought in in 1982 for a car I had then. Hmmmm. I think it's time for a change.
    If that cover sees light of day, count me in as a new owner!
    Thanks,
    Tom

    We’re half way through the 2017 SEMA Show and it’s been a ton of fun! Today we are thrilled to have our good friend Cristy Lee in the booth for a little bit. Here's a few photos from the start of day 3 of SEMA.


    Factory Five Customer Wayne Mills’ GTM Supercar.


    From this angle, you can’t even tell our Mk4 Roadster is missing the other half of the body.



    “All Girls Garage” host Cristy Lee is in the Factory Five booth this morning to sign autographs and take pictures with customers.

    The booth looked great and the cars all looked good. The truck looks much better in person and Erik's coupe was just plain "WICKED" !!!!!!It's a beast.

    When a customer was looking at the pickup he looked at me and said...............

    "My dad had a real one!!"
