It seemed like things were going strong for musclecar builder Unique Performance with cars being cranked out and their family-type relationships with Foose & Shelby until a recent article on AutoWeek.com. The article was written by Mark Vaughn of AW who writes about how Unique could be in trouble after Shelby's licensing branch announced it's taking steps to sever their relationship after numerous complaints and several lawsuits filed by customers who paid for various "Continuation" Shelby's and have yet to receive them. Check below for the full AutoWeek article.
In what may be related or unrelated to this news story because of some sort of partnership squabbling, Unique Performance has re-scheduled their annual Unique PerformanceFest car show on October 20th of this year to sometime in the Spring of 2008 citing "celebrity scheduling conflicts". The event is held every year around the same time in October. Chip Foose has been a regular to this event and Carroll Shelby has attended before. You can draw your own conclusions from this news.
