Join Us at Hot Rod Power Tour West 2023

This year, there is a shorter, 3-day Hot Rod Power Tour West, and I am flying out to Los Angeles this December with Factory Five’s Nate Johnson to participate in the cruise and be on hand for a very special Factory Five unveiling of a Type 65 Coupe that was built with the entire staff of Motor Trend IN their offices in El Segundo, CA!

Nate and I will be driving the new Factory Five XTF Truck, and Motor Trend/Hot Rod Magazine will be unveiling a very special Factory Five Type 65 Coupe built these past months in their SoCal offices to celebrate 75 years of Hot Rod and Motor Trend. Factory Five customers are welcome to join us, but we are actually driving in the Power Tour vs. displaying, so we will not bringing our big rig… this time we are cruising for fun!

The car under this cover is a very special Factory Five Type 65 Coupe, and it will be unveiled on the first night of the Hot Rod Power Tour West on December 15 at Irwindale Raceway to kick off the three day event. Factory Five customers are invited to join us on the cruise, and you can register for the Power Tour with this link.

Nate and myself will be driving the supercharged 5.0L Coyote-powered Factory Five XTF that debuted at SEMA 2023, and features paint-free carbon fiber body panels.
