Should I Build My Own Car?

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.

Do I really want to build my own car, or do I want to drive my dream car?

This question is more common than you think. Building a car can be very rewarding, but is extremely time consuming and significantly more difficult that most would expect. It definitely helps to have some fabrication skills, the ability to completely modify parts of the body and frame, and all the specialty tools; to name a few.

If all you want to do is build a car, check out the Factory Five Racing Build School. For not even a fraction of the cost of a real build, Factory Five Racing offers you the ability to build a car for $800. This workshop is completed over 3 days as you’ll go from bare frame to completed car. If you decide you do want to build your own car, they’ll offer you $250 rebate toward the purchase of your Factory Five Kit.

When you are thinking about spending around $60,000 on a build at a minimum, $800 is well worth the sacrifice.

If all you want to do is have an amazing looking car that is what you’ve dreamed about driving your entire life, then that is where we come in. What excites us is the opportunity to create, build, and deliver your perfect dream car. For some it is the journey, for others it is the end point. Some enjoy the build experience, others find they don’t like it.

A line that we like to use and are proud of is that we haven’t built the same thing twice. Of course we have the full capabilities to build that exact replica (and we will), or help you start or finish your project. You should contact us as we love to chat about what you are thinking (you’ve found our weakness ;)).

We hope this helps in your decision making process. Please leave a comment with your thoughts and share this article! Reach out with additional questions.
