Join Us for the 16th Annual Factory Five Open House, June 15th

It’s hard to believe that we hosted our first Open House in 1997. Every year since then, we’ve taken the time to open the doors to the shop and spend the day with friends, family, and customers. This year, the Open House is going to be held on June 15th, and more than ever, we are excited to pull the wraps off of our latest projects. The event starts at 9 AM and wraps up at 1 PM. Hope to see you at the Open House this year!

One of the biggest attractions of the summer Open House is our HUGE Factory Five Warehouse Parts Sale! If you cannot attend the Open House, this year we will have some great Open House deals posted on our website as well!

Also new for this year, we will have live music from a local band called Latitude, playing a good mix of classic rock throughout the day.

Project 818 gets the big unveil at the this year’s Open House. We will be showing off the first production car, production kits, and our race-proven 818R track car.
