The weather for last weekend’s cruise was sketchy, right down to the morning of the event. But in classic New England fashion, the sun came out and the overcast morning turned into a beautiful mild fall day. Over 75 cars of all different types showed up at the factory for free donuts and coffee and plant tours.
During the plant tours, visitors got to see how things work here at Factory Five as welding, shipping, and chassis assembly were all staffed and on display. The tech crew was on hand to answer any questions, and we even had an 818S pick-up going on as the cruisers pulled in.
The Massachusetts Cruisers Club along with Cuz’s Car Club, Downshifters Car Club, Bristol County Street Rods, Bay State Corvairs, Bay State Street Machines, Massachusetts Corvette Club Cape Cod Classics, and the Blue Angels Car Club came in two waves and it was a lot of fun to watch them roll in one by one, but it was even more fun watching the group leave together. As they exited the Factory Five parking lot, it was like watching a rolling car show go by.
It was a very fun event and the Massachusetts Cruisers Club members for including Factory Five in your Cape Cod Cruise weekend!
