Factory Five Open House – June 4th, 9 AM to 1 PM
This will be our 19th Annual Factory Five Open House event! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been hosting this event for 19 years, and many of our friends and customers were at the very first one. This fun one day show includes car show awards, plant tours, live music, our famous Scratch & Dent Sale, and free food (hot dogs sort of qualify)!
Expect a full parking lot of close to 150 Factory Five customer-built cars at this year’s event. Catch up with old friends and make new ones!
Weather is always a factor since we don’t have a rain date. We run rain or shine, but shine is DEFINITELY more fun.

One of the biggest attractions of the summer Open House is our HUGE Factory Five Warehouse Parts Sale! Our attic is chock full of parts from a long winter, and we will have exceptional deals on new and used/scratch & dent parts. The parts sale corral opens at 9:00 AM.
The Factory Five crew will be on hand to answer questions and make sure everyone has fun. Factory Five’s Sally Bean and Tony Zullo with customer Erik Hansen at the 2013 Open House.
