John, unless I am looking at the wrong site, the F5 registry site that I have seen only has 26 cars listed on it. Currently there is over 130 listed just on this thread for "Canadian" owners, (which is what I was mainly interested in).
Does Ron's site have an area focusing on CND owners?
Can you post a link to his site, maybe I'm looking at the wrong one.
Love at first bite! FFR6803RD, MKIII 3.1, 302EFI, fr/rr disc brakes, WC-T5 c/w Hurst Short Shifter, 3 link, Koni coil overs, dual roll bars, BBK 4-4 headers, 3.55 rear, BBK rr lower control arms, Chuck's Roadster wire harness, part donor, part new. Officially on road 09/2010
This is the site that I know of. It is pretty good. It is too bad there is not more support/knowledge of it. It gets blocked - search f5+registry and you will find it; or insert "f5 registry" after the www. (and without the space)
Bill, he currently has 50 car registered and they're broken down into each model (and mark) from FFR.
Their locations are displayed on a google map function in which ever part of the world they are in. So its not a Canadian only site, but it does separate the Cdn owners form the rest geographically on the registry.
Google "f5 registry" or just type it in like Greg suggests and you'll find it.
MkIII 5787, Levy 408W, Holley 770, TKO600, VPM reinforced 3-Link, SAI, 4-wheel disks, T3s, full width roll bar, full bumpers, tan leather, wipers, washer, Whitby Top, heater, seat heat, FFMetal, Earl's Fresh Air, Russ' steering column, quiet pipes, Dark Water. (Sold)
If you go to the registry website and use the google map feature and click on the Canadian flag and then click on the '+', you will get a breakdown of the Factory Five cars by province. Zoom in on a country until you see the provincial flags and then you will get a breakdown of the province by model type.
As the numbers are so low for such a large country, the sighting of one of our cars is still pretty rare. Other than car shows, or organised cruises, I know I haven't seen one simply driving by here on the Island. I saw the same one (blue with white stripes) several times when I lived on the mainland, but again, other than at shows, I never saw any others.
I know of two roadsters owned here in Newfoundland which are only driven a few times each summer. I haven't yet seen either of them, the only roadster I ever saw in Atlantic Canada was on the waterfront in Halifax, a numder of years ago.
I hope to keep on schedule with my MKIII and hit the road next summer!
Bill, when I built my car in '07 -- '08 there were two others building near me, the other one in Cedar was a fellow named Gerald, I rarely see it driven, and in Lantzville it was a fellow named Gordon -- the three "G's" were building all the same time, Gordon was building the car for someone else. Mine is Mk 3.1, 6260 cheers Geoff
Hey Bill, I know that Mac and Easy P both have their MK 4s in Calgary. Maybe they will see this post at the top again and chime in with their numbers. We got TC approval for the MK 4 today so hopefully it will be home in a few weeks.
