"The Build School is a gem! The 3-day class was fantastic! I was excited about how fast the car went together and about all the engineering Factory Five built into the car to make it so easy to build. Both instructors Jim and Todd were excellent!"

“It was the most value added event I have ever attended, a small price to pay for the confidence I obtained with the hands-on knowledge and experience.”

Bob McLaughlin, FFR 3981
Tequesta, FL

“...Everyone congratulated each other and then said their goodbyes. Armed with their own plans for a Factory Five ’33, they left feeling the three days were a worthwhile experience, and convinced that what they learned will cut their build time in half.”

Ron Kregoski
Cruisin’ News

“The three days were packed with valuable information.
This course is so well organized, I’m at a loss for
words. In the end, I learned that:

I can build the car. Mott College Build School is worth the price. The FFR Roadster kit is the way to go!”
