Watch Speed Channel on Wednesday, April 4th at 9 PM EST to see a really fun episode of the show Car Warriors. Two Factory Five customer teams built ’33 Hot Rods side-by-side in only 48 hours! The two teams consisted of an East Coast team and West Coast team. I was present for the last day of filming and was impressed with the quality of the cars that were built. Tony Zullo laid down an amazing paint job for the East Coast crew while Jeff “Da Bat” Miller didn’t disappoint and delivered a one-of-a-kind Hot Rod for the West Coast team. All Factory Five customers can be proud of the way the teams represented the Factory Five community. The show airs this Wednesday, April 4th.

  • Just a note from one Dave Smith to another:
    I also have a daughter named Jennifer/Jenny. Small world sometimes, eh?
    I am really impressed with your kits and the newsletter but, being too old now to try a kit will have to live vicariously thru others endeavors.
    I’ll be watching tonight for sure as the ’33 is my favorite!

    Factory Five’s ’33 replica is such a beautiful, desirable project car. As an old ‘car nut’, I appreciate all the models from FF, even though I’ll probably never have the chance to do this myself.
    It’s exciting to see others having the fun and passion with these great designs.

  • dave -is one of very few businessman who cares for each of his many- kits-cars- or as he puts it [my children] this may sound silly to some but not to me! i am- i hope- part of the FACTORY 5 FAMILY each kit is a very special car and i hope very soon will be one of my children! you can buy a car anytime- it will not be the car like anyone of these- this is a growing experience like no other in our WORLD money is a problem for all of us- we always make it work when it comes to our children [33 hot rod] in my case. Dave thank you for my soon to be child

  • Great show! Thanks for the comments. Congrats to the East Coast Team and ALSO to the West Coast guys… everyone did a great job and the car will raise alot of money for charity (CF Foundation).

    GREAT SHOW! And 2 Great ‘renditions’of the ’33! {You might think of copying the little ‘headrest boot’! That did not look bad at all!}
    Quick question… what do they do with the losing team car? I was fully expecting them to announce that BOTH cars would be going to the same “winner” at the end of the Show…

  • Steve Treadaway

    Let me know if they raffle the winner off. I’d love to buy some tickets.

    I WATCHED THE SHOW LAST NIGHT AND RECORDED IT FOR I CAN WATCH IT OVER AGAIN. YOU HAVE A GREAT PRODUCT. EVEN THOUGH THE SHOW MADE ME WANT TO BUILD A COBRA MORE. THAT ARE BEAUTIFUL HOTRODS. THE MK4 CALLS MY NAME ALMOST AS THE GTM. BUT THE GTM IS JUST OUT OF MY BUDGET. FOR NOW MABE LATER.

  • Great show, and it’s clear that the impression I already had was accurate: The Factory Five 33 is a superior kit that makes a fantastic finished product. I’d be very pleased to have a chance to win either of these cars.

    I wish we could have seen a bit more about the kits during the show, especially about the suspension and brakes.

    My Father was a fabulous artist. And just as he had MANY beautiful paintings, EACH ONE was WONDERFUL, even though they were all VERY DIFFERENT from each other! There was not just ONE that was “right”! There were MANY! Each one had different beauty to offer!
    And so it is with these marvelous cars! Each design/variation has its own beauty to provide! And the individual creativity can NOT all be “rolled into just one”!
    If I had a GARAGE FULL of FFR cars, I would STILL have ideas and images of “my next one”… (o;
