We just stumbled across an unbelievable eBay find. This 1991 Nissan Sentra project car, nicknamed “Da Hoopty,” is truly a one-of-a-kind vehicle. Where else have you seen a car with rope lighting, “Stealth mode,” and “tailgater avoidance system”? That’s right, nowhere.
IND has put the finishing touches on its BMW M3 project car, which has been nicknamed the Blue Max. Inspired by the BMW M3 GTS and IND’s own Atlantis project IND’s newest creation has received a treatment including a lot of carbon fiber, a roll cage, interior upgrades, and, of course, some goodies under the hood.
I recently had the opportunity to spend a few hours with Dave Smith, CEO of Factory Five Racing at Factory Five’s headquarters in Wareham, Massachusetts. While the original intent was to drive Factory Five’s most recent offering, the ’33 Ford Hot Rod, events conspired to prevent that drive (as they often do with small companies). In a way, that worked out well, because Smith and I had more time to tour FFR’s facility and talk about the car business.
