FormaCars custom luxury automobiles include the ability to flatfoot shift. That means that when the throttle is all the way to the floor, you can cycle through gears more quickly, while keeping the engine speed and torque up.
In this video we demonstrate launch controls as well as flatfoot shifting.
We want to fly you and another person of your choice to Columbus, Ohio, put you up in a hotel, and have you enjoy a High Performance course at the Mid-Ohio Sports School. Of course you can come visit our facility and hang out with us as well.
Well, as you could imagine Barrett-Jackson is now over. We saw just about every car you could ever imagine. We met a lot of wonderful people and spent a few nights out with close business partners and friends. We learn a few things every year we go and will be even more prepared the next time. In the meantime, we have a lot of qualified leads to land! It’s motivating to know that when they get into one of our machines, they will understand why we do this!
We’ve been hanging out with the Factory Five Racing team and having a blast. We brought them over to our place to make some flatbread pizzas and a good time just relaxing with good conversation and laughs. Check out the pics!
Ever wonder how FormaCars can create amazing precision quality cars? Beyond the absolute passion, creativity and desire to make our customers dreams come true, here are a few of our capabilities sans vehicles ;).
At FormaCars quality, precision, and meeting the needs of our customers is extremely valuable to us. We bring your dreamcar to life! Below is a a simple timelapse of a small portion of the process tailoring a custom interior for Factory Five Type 65.
There is no doubt that the supercars today are beautiful well performing machines, but nothing is particularly exclusive about them. As long as you have the means, you can have the same model the person before you just purchased. We are all still happy to see a supercar driving down the road, but it just doesn’t have the same appeal as it used to have.
We are heading to Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale and stopped by the Santa Rosa, New Mexico Route 66 Auto Museum. Had a great conversation chatting with Bozo and Anna Cordova. We’ll be right next to the Factory Five booth, so make sure you stop by and get a quote on your dreamcar build!
Here are a few shots we took as well as a total sunrise timelapse fail for your enjoyment :).
In most cases your custom car, component car, or kit car will not be insured through a traditional personal lines auto policy. You’ll find that a lot of the major insurers partner with specialty insurance companies or classic car insurers. Don’t fret, though, as it’s not hard to get insurance for your beautiful dreamcar! Here are a few items that you will need:
At FormaCars, we bring your dreamcar to life. We build you a vehicle that you will be proud off as people will envy you. We tell new people all the time, when you drive in one of our vehicles, everywhere you go people are in total awe of the quality and beauty of the FormaCars machines. In addition, wouldn’t it be nice to have the peace of mind that you could be enjoying a meal at a restaurant when it starts to rain and not have to worry about running to your car to make sure every delicate electrical component is covered or in a garage. At Formacars our cars are waterproof and durable. Rather than worry, you can actually finish your meal.
These are vehicles that are fully customizable, anti-corrosive, comfortable, livable (we sometimes use the term “creature comfort”). They are luxurious non-compromised machines. And, indeed, fun!
You’ve started your journey into building your own dreamcar and wondering if you need to have a donor car for your new custom car build. The simple answer is yes and no :). Ha! Not as easy as you thought, huh? There are a few kits that come with just the body, frame, and other components. You don’t always need a full donor car, rather you could just purchase new or used parts. In some situations you are generally looking at purchasing the following:
Whether you are building a component car (kit car) or full custom car, fabrication/modification can take some rather advanced skills. You’ve spent all this time making sure the paint is perfect, your exhaust gurgles the sound of igniting 10000 angry fire warriors, tires grip the floor like a bear holding onto a honey comb (it ain’t letting go, you seen how many times those things get stung for some honey?), etc. But, what about your interior?
So… you are thinking about building your own car.... At FormaCars, we love talking to our customers about their custom car builds and helping wherever possible. Here are a few thoughts for you to take away as you ponder this decision making process.
We had a great time at the Factory Five Open House and were proud to have our Mark IV take home a trophy for Best in Process. But the London Cobra Show was just around the corner so there was little time to rest once we got home.
We at FormaCars have been looking forward to the London Cobra Show all year. This event is one of the largest, if not the largest, Cobra replica events in the country and it's right in our backyard in London, OH, less than 30 minutes from the FormaCars shop.
