    The Factory Five Group has lost another good friend too soon.

    The Factory Five Group has lost another good friend too soon.



    Markku "Mark" Koski came to the "Build School" several years ago with his young son Jake. Their dream to build a Cobra together one day. We hit it off as friends I guess with him coming from the "Soo" (Sault Ste. Marie) and the time I spent there in Canada so much. Not to mention our great love of the cobra, hockey, and golf. Although he was a Bruins fan we still had a great friendship and enjoyed a couple of hockey games and cars shows together whenever we could. It seemed that everything always seem to slow him down in some way on his own attempt to build, but he always was looking for that next donor to build with. He purchased several to make that next leap into being a FFR owner, even built a new garage a while back to have a great spot to get at it. But sadly never got to make that final purchase and experience the build first hand for himself.

    God bless my friend. You will be missed but never forgotten.
