    The Fabulous Nomads surf band will play again during the cruise-in event! The name Nomads is synonymous with waves, sunshine, music, and fun. The Fabulous Nomads, Orange County’s oldest surf band, were instrumental in keeping surf music alive and popular during the 80’s until its complete resurrection in the 90’s.

    Last year, Factory Five’s Sally Bean’s daughter Anna jumped in with the band for a few sets on the drums.

    This year, space is limited so the show is open to FFR makes only. If you have a non-FFR Cobra replica or vehicle, call us (508-291-3443) for special consideration. The cost is $50 and that includes parking at the event and eligibility for car show awards. Note: This is a non-profit customer event. Factory Five Racing charges registration to cover the cost of the event only. Register here now!

    Online registration closes at 5 P.M. EST on April 27th. You may register at the event, but space is NOT guaranteed.

    Note: You only need to register if you are bringing your car to be in the show. The show is open to the public and is free.

    Comes up as $204 / night. What do you do with your car? I see there is valet but no one is going to drive my car. Do they have a garage to park yourself that is safe?

    Hi Arvin - The Shorebreak Hotel does have a self-parking area for Factory Five cars so there won't be a repeat from the scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

    There has been some major developments that will make the Huntington Beach Cruise-In even more fun! We are currently building an 850 HP Edlebrock supercharged Mk4 Roadster for the boys at Edlebrock to use at their shows & events and as an engine test mule. We are delivering the car a week after the HB show at Edlebrock’s May 6th car show. Because of this, we are bringing our big rig out west to attend the Edlebrock car show and also the HB Cruise-In!

    With the big rig heading west, we will be able to bring some really special cars with us to the Huntington Beach Cruise-In and the Edlebrock car show. We’ll be bringing our newest Gen 3 Type 65 Coupe R-Type powered by Ford’s new 5.2L Aluminator 52XS. We will also be unveiling Edlebrock’s monster 850 HP Mk4 Roadster for a first ever view at HB. Since we’ve got space on the truck, we’ll bring along our steel body ’33 Hot Rod and our latest 818 Coupe.

    Scott “Honey Badger” Bell will be driving the big rig west for these two great shows.

    The awards for the HB show came in the other day. We already have close to 100 registrations, so this looks like it will be one of the best shows yet.

    This is as much as we can show you of Edlebrock’s new Factory Five Mk4, but if you go to Huntington Beach on Saturday, April 29th or Edlebrock’s car show on May 6th, you will get to see the completed car close-up.

    The steel body ’33 will be at the HB Show.

    Click here to register for this year’s Huntington Beach Cruise-In.
