Factory Five customer Darrell L. from Sparks, NV had the opportunity recently to have his Factory Five Mk3 Roadster photographed for a Hot August Nights poster, celebrating their 27th anniversary.
This past May, Darrell was contacted by a friend to see if his Roadster could be used in a photo shoot. Shortly after that, Darrell was showing up to a nice place in western Reno with a huge shop out back where a garage set was being given the finishing touches along with a full photo crew and equipment.
The garage was set up with Darrell’s Roadster next to the workbench and a Camaro parked next to it. Unfortunately, Darrell was unable to hang around long enough to watch the actual photo shoot, but he was very pleased when he received a copy of the poster in the mail.
“Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the finished product,” wrote Darrell. “I was expecting to just see the rear tail light or something! Unfortunately can’t see my foglights or stripes – but you can just make out the SCCA sticker in the windshield. ”
The image will be on display in the lobby of the Grand Sierra Casino during the show on Saturday, Aug. 3 in Reno.
Congratulations Darrell on having your car featured by Hot August Nights!
