Here are some pics from todays open house. Lots of great cars, and I got a few real deals at the scratch and dent sale, including a $100 pair of 4-into-4's.

I am in envy of all who attended. I was planning to go this year.
My wife flew to Providence yesterday to visit a friend and I was going to work my way across NY on my sales calls and meet her.
The plan was to be able to attend the open house today then spend tonight and Sunday with her (our anniversary was Fri.) and then work my way home next week.
But my boss pulled rank and sent me to a meeting so now here I sit in Murfreesboro TN until next Fri.
On the plus side, I plan to drive through London next Sat on my way home

That beautiful 'stacked' Green 521 CID Cobra...stood out amongst giants. When that car idled it sounded like 'cherry bombs' were rolling out the pipes on a regular basis. Very impressive.

Yeah I noticed the board too. I kept saying, I hope I get 385.2. I wonder why it was changed? Just want everyone to know I DIDN"T DO IT! I got 366.2.
Had a great time at the show. Awsome job as usual. The Factory Five team is one great bunch of people. They actually WORK at that show. It's not like a day off or anything for them. And after we are all gone they still have lots of work to do to clean up. Just wanted to give them a shout-out for thier efforts. NIce. Very nice!

Scotty - Sorry about the gut shot. If it is any consolation, mine is that size when it is sucked in!

Hey Thanks Doug,
It makes 652hp at 6500 and I had the dyno operater cut it short at 6000 because I still needed to drive it home 3hrs! The first pull just warmed up the tires and the second pull they had the other operater push down on the trunk to keep it from spinning. I cant say I would want to be that guy!! I couldnt figure out why they put the dyno booth right next to the driver side sidepipe outlet! I would have moved it forward so I didnt have to breathe the fumes all day. Anyways, I was happy with the results, I guess I have the record until next years Open House! Thanks again to FFR for an awesome day.

Mike
