The crowds at the Factory Five Racing booth were huge! The 818 drew a very large crowd eager to see FFR’s newest creation, but there was still plenty of interest in all of FFR’s products.
Many long-time members of the FFR community from all over the US showed up to hang out with the FFR crew and answer questions from interested SEMA attendees, including Ray McEdward, John Tongish, Garry Bopp and TC McNett.
Long-time customer and good friend David Borden was on hand to show Dave and Jim some of the latest technology from Intel related to structural dynamic testing and analysis. It’s great to have friends with cool jobs!
The cars were the stars of SEMA 2012! In addition to the stunning response to the 818S and 818R, Lots of crowds gathered around the total of 11 FFRs staged thruout SEMA. Several cars were staged in the public viewing area and were excellent examples of the quality and unique interpretations that each individual builder brings to a Factory Five build.
Factory Five customer Peter Skoglund’s ’33 Hot Rod is also a featured vehicle at the year’s show. The car features a Ford 4.6L “Terminator” engine, Tremec 6 speed, Dual system exhaust by Ferrita Sweden, and adjustable sway bars by Sellholms Sweden.
Factory Five customer Karen Salvaggio’s Type 65 Coupe is one of the featured vehicles at this year’s SEMA Show displayed right as you enter the north hall. Very cool!
