We heard about this last week, but wanted to get a few more details from Unique Performance before we passed it on. You’ve heard of the GT-500E (the ultimate production “resto-mod”) and/or the Foose Mustang? They’re both produced by Unique Performance, located in the Dallas area. Not only do they have an incredible shop — which we’ll be featuring here on Toolmonger next week — but they’re also organizing a blowout to which the public is invited.
The shindig takes place on October 14, 2006 at Unique Performance’s facility at 13950 Seniac Drive in Farmer’s Branch, Texas. Chip Foose will headline the event, and Unique’s press release indicates others have been invited as well including Caroll Shelby — the Caroll Shelby — Kid Rock, A.J. from Overhaulin’, and some various sports stars. We know Rock doesn’t sell cars (and why), but maybe he’ll play a bit, yeah?
Starting at 10 a.m. and running until 3 p.m., the event is co-sponsored by Sam Pack’s Auto Group, a Dallas area Ford dealer — and exclusive North Texas dealer for the Foose Stallion Mustang — with a portion of proceeds benefitting the Progeria Research Foundation and Holy Angels. Admission to the public is free, and classes are planned for numerous makes and models of vintage and contemporary performance vehicles including cars and motorcycles. Some of the “proceeds” will be generated by those who sign up for a special corral limited to 100 hentrants that will include a private meet and greet with Chip Foose as well as a photo with him.
So, mark your calendars. We certainly’ll be there.
