We received an e-mail this morning from Factory Five customer Jean-Francois Brule reporting that Factory Five was represented well during the Granby International antique car show in Canada this past weekend. This show sees over 2,000 cars and 30,000 visitors during the three day event.
There were five Factory Five Roadsters (4 Mk3s and 1 Mk4) entered in the Hot Rod/Modified Cars category for judging with about 20 other entrants. Jean said that it looked like the judges really liked their cars when they stopped by to take a look as it took 4 judges nearly an hour to pick the winners. When they finally handed out the awards, two Factory Fives won!
Theirry Mount’s metallic blue Mk3 Roadster won second place and Jean took home third prize for their category. “[The judges] where at the point of comparing door gaps and “minutes” paint flaws between our 2 cars to decide who was going to win it,” wrote Jean. “It was so close that who ever won between us the other one was just proud of being there to witness it!”
Congratulations on your award winning weekend Jean and Theirry!
