Spring Kick-Off, Happy Easter!

Spring got started early this year with a very mild New England winter, but the Easter weekend is the traditional beginning of spring and it is BEAUTIFUL here in Massachusetts. Everyone has spring fever and today was a great example.

FFR President Dave Smith with customer Mike Miller and his crew this morning picking up a Mk4 Roadster.

We had four (!) customer pick-ups today and there are two more scheduled for tomorrow. The Factory Five crew took a long lunch today to enjoy some pizza and watch the broadcast episode of Car Warriors that featured two FFR customer teams building side-by-side ’33 hot Rods. The show was a lot of fun and it showed the versatility in which our Hot Rod can be built.

The FFR Crew watch the Factory Five '33 Hot Rod Build-Off on Car Warriors during lunch.

The other morning, I came in to find no fewer than fifty bunny rabbits (stuffed animals) hiding all over the office and upstairs! It seems customer Bill S. who is fond of bragging about “da bunnies” which are his spies on our 289 FIA project sent us these cute stuffed animals to be donated to charity.

"Da bunnies" are always watching...

On behalf of everyone at Factory Five, I want to wish all of you a peaceful and safe Easter weekend.

I walked by our lift this morning and thought, "Hmm....race or cruise? Perfect!"
