Get off the bus in Dallas around 9am and in to the hotel. Meet a few of the other members of the crew at 2pm in the lobby for our field trip to Unique Performance. I contacted them a few weeks ago about coming down and touring their operation. These guys started out making a replica of the Shelby GT 500 'Eleanor', made famous in the film 'Gone in 60 Seconds'. They have since started producing some nostalgic, but very unique designs of both Fords and Chevys.

We arrive at the shop, a 30,000 sq ft operation, where they do the final assembly. We are guided around by two of the top guys and we are all impressed by the engineering and attention to detail these guys give the cars. We even get to see them dyno one of the beasts (some are close to 750HP). It makes for a memorable afternoon and I thank everyone at Unique for a truly great time.

Back at the hotel, Jerry and I meet up with friends(and former crew mates) Derek and Geoff and grab some dinner (Mexican). Hang out in the hotel lobby/bar afterwards and Derek takes me to see some awesome Mid-Century Modern homes in a new development near the hotel.
