15th Annual Factory Five Open House! June 9th, 2012

Posted on June 8th, 2012

Join us for a very special Open House event! This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Factory Five Racing Summer Open House!

This year’s Open House will be held on Saturday, June 9th from 9 am to 1 pm at our headquarters in Wareham, MA. The format will be a familiar one, similar to previous year’s with car show awards, food and refreshments, and our famous warehouse parts sale!

One of the biggest attractions of the summer Open House is our HUGE Factory Five Warehouse Parts Sale! If you cannot attend the Open House, this year we will have some great Open House deals posted on our website as well!

Also new for this year, we will have live music from a local band called Latitude, playing a good mix of classic rock throughout the day.

We unveiled the two Car Warriors Hot Rods out west at the Huntington Beach Cruise-In a few weeks ago. This will be the first chance for you east coasters to check out the builds.

In addition to unveiling the two Car Warriors ’33s, we’ll also have updated news and a presentation on our newest car, the 818.

Brian F. managed registration and car show entries. About 50 cars attended. Had the sun been shining, we fear it would have been closer to 250!
