Factory Five Customer Dr. Karen S. and Her Coupe

This months Hot Rod Magazine has a great story about Factory Five cars, but there’s more to the “behind the scenes” action!

While we were out in Vegas a few months ago for the filming of the Hot Rod story and the accompanying video on Hot Rod Unlimited, I asked customer and friend Dr. Karen Salvaggio to bring her coupe down to the three-day event to serve as a back-up car for the magazine shoot.

As it turned out, my trusty #5 coupe ran like a top all weekend and survived some serious flogging so I never needed to use Karens Coupe… Too bad because her car is as stunning as she is a great driver and good friend.

You can get a close-up look at her car in a few weeks at the annual Factory Five-Huntington Beach Cruise-in event to be held in HB California on Saturday and sunday April 27th and 28th!
