Finally got one FFR 818S
I first fell in love with the Factory Five Racing products way back when.The roadster was the one but then in 2013 the 818S came into production and I really liked it....so much so that I've talked to anybody I knew about some day owning one.... well that day was last Wednesday 8/2 when an FFR forum member placed his beautifully built 818S for sale in New York a 2:45 pm... that night I registered to the forum trying to get in contact with him, on Thursday morning I found out that all new comers are placed in quarantine until clear by the administrator... contacted him and asked to have my introduction expedited so that a deal could be reached and he did. By mid day Thursday contacted the seller via pm on the forum and in my rush to do so I failed big time by omitting the last number of my phone.
Home at 5pm after work and checked the forum and found a message with seller's phone... called him right away and the deal was made. Friday at 5pm left Indy for New Yor and at 4 pm Saturday it was on the trailer heading back home and safely in my garage Sunday at 4 pm.
Let it be known that I have never seen an 818 in my life, not just this one, any 818, but I have always known that the 818S was what I wanted since its introduction.
Friday got my temporary plate and out for a drive in a non controlled airport....what a blast..now waiting for the personalized plate arrive....
Jetfuel...let the fun begin....
