Join Us at the 2018 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona!

Join us at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA on January 26th -2 8th! Our big rig is out west at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Show in Scottsdale, and we’ll be heading further west the following week to attend the 69th GNRS! The Factory Five crew of Dave Smith, Tony Zullo, and Sally Bean will be joined by customers Karen Salvaggio, Frank and Julie Maslowski, Gary Cheney, Doug Deffebach, Dave and Grant Hodgkins, Erik Hansen, and many more of the hardcore SoCal customer group.

We will be bringing some really cool new Factory Five cars including the exciting new ’35 Hot Rod Pick-Up Truck and our Gen 3 Type 65 Coupe-R that just finished the season finale of the show “Fast N’ Loud” (and it was definitely the fastest and loudest). Pro-builder Fred Simmons is bringing his steel body ’33 Hot Rod fresh from SEMA’s Battle of the Builders. The show runs Friday to Sunday, and we’re looking forward to scoring some nice SoCal weather after the very cold New England winter we’ve had.

If you would like to bring your car to the show or if you have any questions about the show, contact Sally Bean here at Factory Five by sending an e-mail to

At the 2017 GNRS (L to R): Doug Deffenbach, Karen Salvaggio, Dave Smith, and Frank Maslowski

The Grand National Roadster Show really is the premiere west coast hot rod show.

Last year, the weather was a perfect 70* and mild. We’re hoping a repeat! The current forecast shows mild and sunny conditions! For more information, click here to visit the Grand National Road Show’s website.
