Mark Smith Started what became Factory Five Racing in 1993. After shipping thousands of kit cars and 18 years of business Mark Sold FFR in 2012. Cofounded Local motors with Jay Rodgers Smyth Performance is the result of 4 years of engineering effort to create easier kit cars that are easier to build. Since then Smyth Performance has produced the awesome MK4 based G3F kit car that transforms a Jetta into a mid engine, rear will drive beast and its newest creation a kit to turn a 4 door Jetta or Golf into a UTE with a 6ft bed.
