Ex-Employee of Unique Performance Tells All




A former employee of Unique Performance posted up his thoughts or shall I say his rant on a previous post of "Shelby Severing Ties" to let everybody know the real story through his eyes on why the company is where it is.  Usually comments to any specific post get pushed under the covers so to speak but I thought this comment was quite interesting so I decided to post it up to share with everybody.  The former employee does make some rather engaging talking points with his bold accusations about Doug Hasty and the company he founded.  Give it a read after the jump, it's quite lengthy...

  2. The ex-employee that has been with Unique for the past 2 years is only hitting on three cylinders and should know the facts before they make written statements.
    Unique has completed and delivered 44 Supersnakes with 427 Fe supercharged engines as of Ostober 1, 2007. 22 of the engines were built by shelby Automobiles from 2004 through 2005 and the other 21 were built by 1 other source from 2005 through 2007.
    As for the problems with the overheating and mechanical failures, while it is true that the overheating was the result of several issues that include Fuel, Air and Cooling issues the mechanical failure in the Shelby Autos engines were the result of unrefined valve train hardware and excessive compression ratios as well as poor adherence to build specs, assembly tolerances and build practices.
    Brent Fenimore did not begin to work for Unique until October of 2005 at which time he was hired as a Business Development Mgr. The engineering, development and assembly practices had already been performed on 38 of the 43 Supersnakes when he began to work with the Vintage Platform in June of 2006 with his main duties being the identification and implamentation of proper assembly practices and sequence in order to get the cars built on a repeatable basis while improving quality and throughput. He identifed a specific team to address the big block issues as well as the engineering of all products produced and worked with the team on a regular basis to initiate continuous improvement practices as well as the application of standard operational procedures throughout the entire build process.
    Brent was with Shelby for the preveous 8 years before he came to UP and by no means ran it into the ground. He followed through with the final engineering, managed and implemented production for the build of 249 Shelby Series 1 vehicles, some 350 plus CSX Cobras, Limited Edition Cobras and the development of multiple performance components and assemblies. He also brought Shelby American out of the ashes when the venture capital partners went BK in 2003 by working with Carroll on the formation of Shelby Automobiles. Brent was the founder of building CSX Cobras in Mexico with HST, escalated the Shelby Brand name to where it is today, worked on multiple license agreements with CSL and worked directly with Ford and SVT to get the contract for the license agreement on the modern GT500 vehicles being produced by Ford today. Brent worked countless hours to help UP and is in the same boat along with the other employees as far as pay and benefits.
    It is true that the employees were the strongest asset of UP and that they worked very hard to continuley improve the products they built, it is ashamed they are in the position they are today.
    As for Doug Hasty and the principal owners of Unique Performance, I think a lot of mistakes were made over the course of the five years they were in business however I find it very hard to believe he gained anything on a personal level.

  4. "Former Employee" is definitely Brent Fenimore.
    And anyone who knows the stories regarding Brent knows that he is the reason that Shelby Auto's almost went out of business. He is a liar and he did unscrupulous acts that caused harm and great expense to the company and Carroll personally.
    I find it ironic that Unique which was riding high two years ago is where it is today. Brent has been at Unique for two years and now Unique finds itself in the same or worse position he left Shelby in. And Shelby is in the best shape of their life after 2 years without Brent. Coincidence...... I think not! He is an automotive plague.

  5. This is not Brent but rather someone that feels it is ridiculous to implicate someone that has only joined the company in the last 2 years and been involved in the vintage production for less than 18 months, the company was destined for a train wreck before he even began employment. It is quite apparent that the company made the mistake of trusting the original engineering (R & D), manufacturing staff and management personnel to startup and facilitate the production of quality vehicles and that the upper management made several mistakes on the control and distribution of funds from the start of the company back in 2002.
    If this so called ex-employee has truly been with UP for some 2 years they would also know that the entire operation including Brent have been facing financial setbacks and hardships since October of 2006 making the hope for success dismal at best.
    UP was a very good concept and it very well could be successful today if the right people were put in place from the conception of the company. I think it is sad that the upper management was not able to get the funding in place for the employees to perform their jobs but I am not sure exactly who, or if any one person, is to blame for the demise of the business.
    All we can hope is that the customers band together to work out a process that will get their cars complete and that the hard working staff gets the pay and benefits that they are due.

  6. I HAVE OWNED AND OPPERATED A SMALL CUSTOM/RESTORATION SHOP FOR OVER 30 YEARS I HAVE NEVER BEEN SUED OR FAILED TO DELIVER A CAR ON TIME WITH A STAFF OF NEVER MORE THAN 5.
    IT MAKES ME SICK TO SEE WHAT THESE GREEDY MONEY DRIVEN JACK LEGS ARE DOING TO THE FEILD I HAVE SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE STRUGGLING TO PLEASE CUSTOMERS IN, EVERY AUTO PUBLICATION I CAN THINK OF HAS PRAISED HOW GREAT UNIQUE WAS FOR THE PAST THREE OR FOUR YEARS AND EVERY TIME I LOOK UP FOOSE HAS HIS FACE ON SOMETHING . THEY WHERE FLAT OUT ROBBING PEOPLE WITH THE PRICES THEY WERE CHARGING AND THERE QUALITY WAS NOT EVEN THAT GOOD.I CAN NOT FATHOM HOW THEY COULD SCREW UP THE GOLDEN GOOSE THAT THEY HAD.
    IT ALL GOES TO SHOW YOU DONT ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR EVEN THOUGH YOU SHOULD,DONT EXPECT JUST BECAUSE A CAR HAS SOME GUYS NAME ON IT THAT IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT CAR OR SUPER COLLECTIBLE,

  7. the facts are these. unique has taken in millions in deposit money for cars that it hasnt built. That is fraud pure and simple.Any body who is defending hasty and brent should clearly explain why they think these guys are innocent. I know for a fact brent was kicked out of the shelby parts booth during sema. The fact is deposits were paid for cars that were never built. Licencing agreements were cancelled with unique by foose and shelby. There is a cell waiting for hasty in farmers branch

  8. MY OPINION OF UNIQUE PERFORMANCE CURRENT SITUATION:
    AT FAULT- DOUG HASTY AND KERRY KEATING (CFO)
    DOUG FOR HIS DECISIONS AND KERRY FOR HIS POOR FINANCIAL PLANNING. COMPANY GREW TOO LARGE AND TOO FAST FOR ITS OWN GOOD.WHEN THINGS STARTED VISION WAS BLURRED BY EASY SALES AND BIG BUCKS ON NEW CONTRACTS. BIG BUCKS BEING A 50% DEPOSIT AT TIME CONTRACT WAS INKED, THEN ANOTHER 25% WHEN CAR WENT TO PAINT, AND FINAL 25% AT DELIVERY. YOU DO THE MATH CONSIDERING AVERAGE SALE PRICE OVER $170,000.00. THE 25% WHEN CAR WENT TO PAINT EXPLAINS WHY THERE WERE SO MANY OF THE 61 CARS THAT F/B POLICE SEIZED WITH BODY WORK DONE AND PAINTED BUT THAT WAS ALL. IT WAS ONE OF THEIR FINAL GRASPS FOR AN INFUSION OF MONEY TOWARDS THE END.
    AS FAR AS TITLE WASHING GOES , THAT IS JUST F/B POLICE LEAPING BEFORE THEY LOOKED. IN THE END THEY WON'T LOOK REAL GOOD ON THAT FRONT. VAST MAJORITY OF THE CARS HAVE CLEAN AND CLEAR TITLES.F/B POLICE DID NOT LIKE THE NEW SHELBY VIN PLATES WE USED TO REFERANCE THE RESTO OPTIONS AND SPECS OF THE GT500E AND GT350SR. THOUGH IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A BETTER CHOICE TO LOCATE NEW TAG OTHER THAN ON TOP OF ORIGINAL VIN STAMPING LOCATED ON LEFT FRONT FENDER. THE 2 PLACES VIN TAGS WERE ORIGINALLY LOCATED WERE D/S DOOR FACE AND LEFT FRONT FENDER AND AS F/B POLICE WILL FIND WE NEARLY ALWAYS USED NEW DOORS AND LATEST VERSION OF THE BODY KIT INCLUDED NEW FIBERGLASS FENDERS.
    MY TOP 5 REASONS FOR UNIQUE DEMISE ARE(IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER):
    TOO MUCH PAYROLL-AT ONE POINT WELL OVER 100 EMPLOYEES (NOT SURE EXACT # BUT GOOD GUES WOULD BE 125 AT ALL LOCATIONS)
    THIS # MIGHT HAVE WORKED IF U/P KNEW HOW MUCH IT COST IN PARTS TO BUILD THE CARS, HOW MUCH IN SHOP SUPPLIES TO BUILD THE CARS, HOW MANY HOURS IN LABOR FOR BODY WORK, AND HOW MANY HOURS LABOR TO DO THE MECHANICAL FINAL BUILD. THEY TOTALLY GUESSED AT THESE IMPORTANT THINGS AND ONLY BEGAN TO HAVE A CLUE IN THE FINAL YEAR. BY THEN MONEY ISSUES HAD SLOWED THE FLOW OF INCOMING PARTS TO A TRICKLE. NO PARTS IN NO CARS OUT.
    R AND D- GREG BOND SUCKED. ORDER IT,TRY IT,MODIFY IT,WELD IT, CUT IT, THEN THROW IT TO THE SIDE.FEW IF ANY POLICIES OR PROCEDURES IN PLACE FOR IDENTIFYING OR SOLVING ISSUES ON PRODUCTION CARS. REALLY JUST FLEW BY THE SEAT OF HIS PANTS. PRIME EXAMPLE BEING ISSUES WITH B/B SHELBY ENGINES. PISS POOR JOB OF IDENTIFYING ISSUES EARLY ON AND EVEN WORSE JOB WORKING WITH SHELBY HOW TO SOLVE THEM.
    TOO MUCH OVERHEAD-5 BUILDINGS AT THE END AND 2 STORAGE FACILITIES.
    BAD GAME PLAN-PLANNED POORLY FROM BEGINNING. HINDSIGHT IS 20/20 BUT MIGHT HAVE BEEN GOOD TO SEEK ADVISE/COUNSEL FROM SOMEONE WITH MANUFACTURING BACKGROUND, ESPECIALLY IF IN AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY.WAITED TOO LONG TO SEEK INVESTOR HELP AND OR FINANCIAL GUIDENCE.
    LIVING LARGE-I TRUELY BELIEVE THIS WAS THE SMALLEST OF MY 5 ISSUES. GRANTED FEW TOO MANY 1ST CLASS FLIGHTS,HIGH $ HOTEL ROOMS, BIG TIME ADS,TOYS LIKE HUMMER AND NEW FORD TUCKS AND UP 18 WHEELER BUT ALL IN ALL FROM WHAT I OBSERVED NOT TOO FAR OVER THE LINE IF THINGS HAD JUST BEEN PLANNED BETTER FROM BEGINING.
    AND IN CONCLUSION THE MAJOR WRONGS DONE WERE:
    FAILURE TO PAY FINAL CHECKS TO EMPLOYEES
    TAKING OUT OF PAYCHECKS $ FOR 401K AND INSURANCE AND NOT PAYING IT IN

    SHAFTING VENDORS AND CUSTOMERS WHO PURCHASED VEHICLES BY EITHER NOT SEEING OR SEEING AND NOT PROPERLY RESPONDIND TO THE FINANCIAL TITAL WAVE THAT HIT UNIQUE PERFORMANCE.
    HOPE THIS CLEARED UP A FEW THINGS
    P.S. ANY EX EMPLOYEES THAT HAVE NOT FOUND WORK YET SHOULD APPLY FOR UNEMPLOYMENT BENIFITS FROM THE TEXAS WORK FORCE COMMISION AT http://www.twc.state.tx.us/customers/jsemp/jsemp.html
    TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THEY HAVE NOT DISPUTED CLAIMS FORMER EMPLOYEES HAVE MADE. THEY HAVE NOT TAKEN CALLS OR ANSWERED CORROSPONDANCE FROM TWC WHICH RESULTS IN FAVORABLE RULING IN EMPLOYEES FAVOR. DEPENDING ON WAGES EARNED OVER LAST 15 MONTHS (CAN INCLUDE OTHER EMPLOYERS ALSO) TWC CAN PAY UP TO $378 PER WEEK FOR UP TO 26 WEEKS.

  9. Who is it that knows the intricate details of Brent Fenimore's career before and during his time at Unique? They gu that knows every detail of manufacturing, production quantities and dates, and head office politics within the company? I'm not fooled.
    It's shameful that you would try to defend your name! You're a crook! You'll be in jail over the way you treated your vendors, your customers, and most importantly, your employees.
    Unique's management team really garnished child support payments and did not foward them to the state? What a wretched group of bastards running that place.

  11. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT A LOT OF MONEY PROBLEMS WERE DUE TO THE FACT OF LARGE LIVING BY THE OWNERS. DOUG HASTY, RICHARD KIRBY AND CHRIS LANGE. YOU ARE CORRECT5 ABOUT THE ENGINES ALSO!!!! HASTY IS VERY GOOD AT POINTING THE FINGER ANY WHERE BUT AT HIMSELF!!! AS FAR KERRY GOES HIS HANDS WERE HELD BY HASTY. HIS JOB WAS A JOKE BECAUSE HE HAD NO AUTHORITY UNLESS HASTY GAVE IT TO HIM. I WORKED A MANY AN HOUR TO GET AN ANVANCE ON THE LINE OF CREDIT AT THE BANK TO PAY VENDORS TO HAVE HASTY TAKE IT ALL FOR HIS EXPENSE CHE3CK. ALL OF THE OWNERS THOUGHT VERY HIGHLY OF THEMSELVES AND VERY LItTLE OF ANYONE ELSE. tHIS IS A FACT AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK!!!

    Are you confessing to a felony, because that's exactly what this is. Did you people ever stop to think that you might need to document this stuff with the state? Knocking VINs off of cars is highly illegal and only amateurs (ie. Unique and its employees) would do something so stupid.

  13. Real sad to hear,I live in the area and enjoyed their yearly car show a great deal,As an ex res of south fla I would have no surprise at business trouble like this or where the money came from to finance things.. I purchased my 1970 from a junkyard bunch and had a hell of a time making sure the papers etc were in order, then a month later these bohunks went to jail for running a hidden chop shop visible only by air.

  15. I understand that Unique hired some of Rucker Performance's
    manpower and that the best of them were back at Rucker doing the same work as Unique but actually finshing cars and doing much better work. I know Rucker does have a relationship with Shelby And could finsh any of the work that Unique has started. They have a much smaller shop and are very easy to deal with.

  18. Be careful when you apply for unemplymnt.I applied for t and now they say that since we were hired by a temp service(AMS) which I was not told that when I was hired on. TWC states that it may not be approved because AMS is a temp service and you have to notify the temp service of such termination or leaving a job(the company Unique shut down). But the problem is that Unique never told the workers about being hired by a temp service, Unique told us that AMS was the payroll people that cut our checks.. Well, ya of course.. That is who we really worked for.. . Then one day out of the blue .. HR department comes and tells us that we will be getting checks from Unique Performance and not AMS.. From then on everything went down hill. Some weeks they did not have money to pay us. Then they said that we had to work 1 week (40hrs) then only get paid for like 32 hrs. It was a mess... But now I know why.. The company was going down... Still to this day have not received my last check..... Shame..... Watch out when you apply w/TWC.....

  19. This crook is not hurting one bit, just go see where he lives, drives and whats in his garage. At a cookout Hastys wife showed us at least a million$ in diamonds she had on and showed off her custom aston martin, and lavish trips. He's a con who won't miss a beat, and we have been hit by him. You do the crime you pay the time. The state of Texas needs to enforce the laws we all have to abide by and Hasty is no acception. All the people he took money from, from the wealthy car buyer to the poor employees that did not get paid, much less had 401 earnings taken out of checks that don't exist need to go after this crook as well. Rumor has it he is already starting a new company back in insurance, this can't be the American way. If it were legal to do business like Hasty we'd all be wealthy. Don't just sit back and wait, stand up and do something!

And for Hasty's wife she may have had lots of bling but it never amounted up to millions! Seriouly, what's it you what Doug's wife had or has? She is not even in this...just like non of our spouses are! There are many rumors out there but lets only focus on the facts!

  22. Oh, boy. Someone just linked me to this.
    First off, yes, that is DEFINITELY Brent Fenimore defending himself, including his trademark "hitting on all cylinders." Shameless!! Unbelievable. I can refute every single claim Brent makes.
    Brent, you did not "follow through with the final engineering, managed and implemented production for the build of 249 Shelby Series 1 vehicles and some 350 plus CSX Cobras." You did no engineering whatsoever, in fact, the only part you DID 'engineer' (control arms, which were a rip-off of the Kirkhams), FAILED and had to be scrapped, every one of them!
    Speaking of control arm debacle, Brent, you were NOT the founder of Shelby building Cobras in Mexico. What a crock!! You are either delusional or have no soul if you will take credit for something you didn't do. HST did it, conceived of it, and accomplished it, and gets all the credit. You, Brent, only screwed that up by not paying them because you burned through all the money, which the SEC filings demonstrate!
    And escalating the Shelby brand to where it is today?!?! You didn't do that, Amy didn't do that, you know who did? FORD.
    Get... a... grip. You didn't work on ANY license agreements at all. Ford approached Carroll and Carroll only, and paid Carroll directly, NOT Shelby the company.
    Above all, Brent was the reason Shelby and Venture went BK in the first place! After that, he did not drag Shelby out of the ashes. In fact, *investors* did, and what did Brent do? Burned through their money!! Brent bought giant plasma screen TV's for his office, new digital cameras, spent money incredibly frivolously and wastefully, all while ignoring the bottom line: delivering cars. While the company was too broke to spend money on buying parts to complete cars, Brent was marching him and all his cronies to Pebble Beach, Monterey, and Barrett-Jackson, just to stand around trying to be somebody! Not to produce one red cent for the company.
    Just one example of how Brent burned through our money at Unique was the Shelby F-150. You don't remember it? No surprise, Brent spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on it like it was nothing, and then his idea of a great product launch was to annouce it to the world by saying it was a dead program and the trucks wouldn't be for sale. Guess who got a Shelby F-150 though? BRENT!!
    Motor problems at Shelby? Brent's fault, trying to play motor guy. Motor problems at Unique? ALL BRENT. All he knows about engines he learned from reading car magazines and then hanging around at Shelby.
    Brent is a virus that runs through the automotive world, no, the business world. Ya know what happened to the company Brent was manager of before Shelby? IT WENT UNDER!!
    I am sorry he was ever selected to work at Unique, although I will say this, Hasty is no saint but Brent pulled the wool over Doug's eyes but good. Every time Doug would start to get hip to a problem, Brent would start weaving his web of lies until Hasty's eyes glazed over, and in no time little Brent would be right back to pulling Big Hasty the puppet's strings.
    I am just sickened that Brent would lack the spine, the guts, and the cojones to post his little spiel about himself under his own name.

You don't want rumors just the facts, well they are stated facts. When someone is a con man who feels they can make a living above the law we all have to abide by how can you defend him, unless you are him! As far as any of these wifes, especailly Hastys who tells her story to anyone who will listen, which is the twisted version Hasty has her beliving I feel bad for them all because they have been lied to and do not know the real truth.

  26. We all know that Unique Performance screwed all of us out of our money. Anyone tried to contact that old thief Shelby. I have left numerous messages at Shelby Autos' trying to get answer on who is responsible to build my car or return my funds. That old fart has turned my calls along with Doug. Didn't he put his name to these cars and doens't that make him responsible? I tried to contact the President of Shelby Amy Boylan to no avail. That ugly looking hermorphidite (doesn't she remind you of Pat from Saturday night live) hasn't returned my calls either. They are all crooks in my book.

  31. Nice posting Amy, her flunky, or just a loser that doesn’t have all the facts,
    As an investor in CSBI, Customer of SAI and someone that has worked with Carroll and his companies for many years I can say that it is quite apparent that you know very little of the recent history of Carroll, Shelby American, Venture Industries, Carroll Shelby Licensing, Shelby Automobiles (or whatever you call yourselves this year) and much less of the long term history of Shelby and his games.
    I think the point of this thread has been skyjacked from its original posting to divert the attention from Carroll Shelby, his companies & so called licensing agreements with Unique, but it does give us a chance to get a few things out that the general public should know.
    Let me start by saying that you are sadly mistaken to think that Brent Fenimore did not make major contributions to the development and subsequent production of the Series 1 vehicles, the Cobra Component Vehicle platform, the reunification of Shelby / Ford, the formation of CSI and multiple licensing deals starting back in 1999. Brent absolutely developed the relationship between HST in Mexico (through Dale Obeshaw) and Shelby Automobiles to help bail Carroll’s butt out after Carroll’s failed attempt to build cars with CAV in South Africa. Several of us know these facts but most of us work for Shelby and can not afford to jeopardize our positions however this has gotten way out of hand and the truth needs to be told.
    Fenimore is not able to properly respond to threads in the public domain due to an agreement he made with Carroll Shelby & Co when he resigned in September of 2005, or I am sure a lot more people would be up at arms against Shelby and his trickery. I am sure however he does have some comfort in knowing that the truth will come out in a court of law (Fenimore vs. Shelby, Rafferty vs Shelby, Venture vs Shelby, Halicki vs Shelby, Wilhelm vs Shelby, SAAC vs Shelby, etc., etc., etc.) as well the impending FBI, SEC & IRS investigations concerning Carroll Shelby and his Public / Private companies, Income Tax Evasion dating back to 1999 and his so called “Charity”.
    Your numbers are so fictitious it is sickening, who drank the Kool-Aid after stumbling into a pre-written business plan and gold mine? If you actually knew anything about the formation of CSI and the SEC filings you would be aware that SAI started its operations with a -$1,500,000 good will gesture by taking over the contracts on some 100 plus Cobras that had been sold and the monies spent under the Shelby Venture agreement. A negative cash flow of -$2,250,000 after associated moving costs (SAI moved from the large facility to a small facility for the first 9 months of operation as part of their maneuvers to swindle Venture out of their investment only to move back after the deal was done in late 2004) as a startup was no easy undertaking but it was decided to move forward to save the reputation and financial stability of Carroll Shelby. To add to the black hole Shelby, Luft and Cummings wanted to leave all the former suppliers to the debunked Shelby American Company holding an empty bag. That would have been very difficult or impossible due to the fact that they were the same suppliers needed to complete the cars that were contracted which made for an additional -$900,000. A bottom line of -$3,150,000 balance upon the startup (not to mention the $350,000 Carroll had blown at CAV in South Africa and the $500,000 on company airplanes) was never divulged to the investors or properly reported to the SEC. No problem, Carroll Shelby promised the LV team a $10,000,000 investment through his reverse merger and that money would be focused to Automobiles and automotive related acquisitions to make it a workable plan.
    Opps, CSI was side tracked on its investment strategy and only raised $4,000,000 before Carroll found out he was being diluted with every dollar invested and screwed up the whole plan by telling the investors he was planning to BK the company in May of 2004. As for the $4 mil, only $2.4 mil was directed towards SAI and the cleanup effort, the other $1.6 mil was spent by Shelby and Luft on filings, incentives, commissions and whatever they could shove under the table or in their pocket.
    By causing the stock to drop from $5.35 per share to .19 cents per share (details of which will be uncovered during the investigation) Shelby created the shorting of the stock which is insider trading. Through this highly illegal maneuver they (CSI) have also allowed Carroll to use stock options to get from his 61% ownership in 2005 to his current 90% ownership of the public company for pennies on the dollar through a self serving agreement between himself and Amy Boylan (the only two members of the BOD for CSI, SAI & CSL).
    Shelby enjoys Millions of $ to line his pockets and the pockets of his cronies while the investors (I own several thousand shares myself) sit on devalued shares (-2,900%) trying to figure out how their stock dropped over $5 per share overnight and has not gained a penny in years even though CSI has taken in millions in royalties and automobile contracts with Ford (look up the history of CSBI stock on line).
    In my opinion Fenimore got out of the Public Company due to the Insider Trading, Self Serving Agreements and Fraudulent Filings of Shelby, Luft, Cummings and Boylan. As the onion peels it will become very apparent that Shelby and his companies have illegally used investor money to get themselves out of bankruptcy and back in control of the Shelby Brand while slandering Venture Industries out of a $30 million investment and public investors out of millions in the formation of CSI.
    This is all from an 85 year old man that has stolen the identity of a 100 year old car company (AC Cars), slandered the IRS, EPA, NHTSA, FTC, Ford Motor Company, General Motors (just to name a few) and Multiple Partners as well as the general public for over 40 years. Shelby has taken in millions ($7,000,000) to promote his name / brand through a “Charity” that has contributed less than 5% to the actual cause, sold CSX3000 Cobras as Original 1965’s for $500,000 that were actually built by McKlusky in 1989 – 1993 and taken 100% credit for the hard work of hundreds of Racers, Engineers, Designers and Niche Vehicle Builders around the world.
    Wake up and see Carroll Shelby for what he truly is and quit looking through the rose colored glasses, the truth will drop him to his knees and destroy his heritage forever once the facts are made public in court.
    Lets get back to the characters that actually were involved in this scam, Carroll Shelby, Amy Boylan, John Luft and last but not least Doug Hasty.
    If this person wants to keep divulging untrue statements and facts, a lot more bottom line details and facts are sure to follow, a lot of us are ready to talk and making escape goats won’t change the facts.
    Q: How did John Luft acquire 200,000 shares of CSBI for $1 per share when it was trading at $4.75 per share in 2004?
    A: Insider Trading? Slime Ball, Bottom Feeder, Self Serving Transaction
    Q: Was Carroll Shelby Aware of the transaction?
    A: Yes, yet after the fact Luft is still CFO of the public company today and President of Licensing
    Q: Did Amy Boylan leave Mattel under good terms by her own choice?
    A: No, she was terminated and paid severance to go away quietly
    Q: Why was she terminated?
    A: “Ask Amy” I am sure she will tell the truth and nothing but the truth sooner or later

  36. Scott Palmer - Mike Luzader was an employee for Unique Performance CONCEPTS...late model vehicles only. His name should not be posted because he had absolutely nothing to do with the vintage line. He never accepted or spent any deposit. The guy is an engineer. Mark Goode, Bobby Sign, Jr. and John Logan are fine upstanding individuals who believed Doug Hasty and Kerry Keating's lies. We all did. Please leave the innocent people out of this. Thank you!

  37. Based on information we received in response to our post of December 27, 2007, it appears that Fred Blum and Mike Luzader came on board very late in the game and were not parties to any false information provided to our clients or withheld from them.
    We would still like to hear more about what the other individuals knew about the financial affairs of Unique Performance and Unique Motor Cars when the company accepted several hundred thousand dollars in deposits from them.
    If these individuals would like to contact me, I can be reached at (214) 750-4723 or by e-mail to frankmcintyre@fwmcintyre.net

  39. Based on concerns expressed by some who have contacted our office in response to our previous posts, we would like to clarify a couple of points.
    First, the fact that any lawsuit is pending against any of the corporate entities or individuals named as defendants in the suit, should not be interpreted to mean that any of the defendants have been found guilty by any court.
    Second,some of the defendants we initially identified in this case were chosen because they were named in a written document in which Doug Hasty named them as members of the "management team" of Unique Performance. Others were identified because their names appear on written documents indicating they were directly involved in negotiating the contracts for sale of vehicles to our clients. In both cases, we believe the role these individuals played in the company and the transactions gave rise to their duty to learn of and disclose to the customers how their money was being used.
    Third, we are still in the process of investigating the facts, and that process will continue throughout the course of any lawsuit we file, just as it does in any lawsuit. Lawsuits are by their nature a process in which formal allegations are made and answered in court. In cases such as these there are always conflicting stories and points of view. Ultimately a jury and a judge may be asked to sort out those conflicting stories and render a judgment as to who has and who does not have liability to our clients for the fact that their money is apparently gone while the cars for which they deposisted it, were never built.
    We close by again asking anyone who has information regarding this matter to share it with us.

  40. Brent Fenimore isn't to blame for all the failures that follow him around. He was put in charge of Shelby's to be the patsy, so basically they set him up for failure. He's an alcoholic, so thats to blame for his failed marriages. Fenimore came into Unique as they were failing, so that explains that.
    If you don't know the whole story, you shouldn't be airing all Brents dirty laundry in public. Lets keep the focus of this post on how Brent isn't at fault rather than how he is. OK?

  41. The above posting about Brent not being to blame has some revelant facts but to the best of my knowledge he has only been married twice, currently for ten years and still going and the first was back in the eighties only for a couple years.
    As far as being an alcholic, I doubt it but who really knows who is and who isn't anymore. The auto industry and niche vehicle in particular are tough business not to mention working for a company that has been flat broke until recently.
    I know he worked for Shelby for a long time so the patsy part probably has a few more facts to it that we will never know, he did a lot for the old fart over the years and I am sure he left for a good reason.

  42. Whoever is using Bob Marsh’s name to post is sick but by the way, it is a good thing that Brent took out Long Term Disability Insurance on the Managers of SAI prior to Bob’s diagnosis. Carroll demanded that Brent terminate Bob in 2004 after he was not able to work 40 hours per week because of the size of his salary (even though Bob had been with him and SAI on and off for 15 plus years). Although Brent never would have let Bob go, it was the simple fact that 40% of his salary was covered by insurance that got Shelby to allow Bob to continue working or I am sure he would have forced the issue one way or the other.
    It looks like Amy and her friends don’t want to leave Brent alone, he may be a lot of things but a failure he is not.
    If you call someone that finished out a modern car program (S1) that was $5 mill in the drink before you get started or keeping a company alive that has no money while not only defending but also propelling the reputation of an owner that is only worried about his own personal wealth and well being a failure you apparently live in another world than the rest of us.

  48. I spent time at the homes of a few of the aboved named people that were owners of the company. I seen the lifestyles that they lived and spent times in the Aston Martin, Bentley, and on the yaht out in Grapevine, riding the jet skis, watching movies in the theaters in thier homes. Lavish!!! Hell yes. Most people work for thier money, I do! They stole it and knew it!! I like them all and they are good people, but you can't take peoples money and get away with it. I couldn't be the 1 to tell on someone for doing bad , but I know for a fact why they are moving away and cutting ties with each other. I saw them go from big house to apt living in a matter of a year or less, selling all they had to survive. Sometimes we all have to be knocked off our horse to get back up and try again. I wish much luck and if you read this you may even know who I am.. Love the salt water pool guys..

  51. Some of you are right and some, well seeing is not always believing and this comes from one who is not the biggest fan of Kirby, Hasty or Lang. I can say I have known all three of the individuals mentioned since at least 1998 and if I would have talked about them from 1998 to 2001, I would have said smart, outgoing, ego driven, fashion conscious, go-getter type people. All three started out in the Medical Industry and grew into the Insurance PEO Industry, where I met them and they became known as successful at starting up in the industry, mind you they were driving older Hondas and Acuras and had not quite reached the success they found later on. This was all derived from Hasty and Kirby meeting and getting in on the AMS Staff Leasing Program and offering and selling it (this is why Unique Employee checks came from AMS and AMS was not a staffing agency, only a payroll and insurance processing company ) they then moved to Texas. I know this as I visited them there on a couple of occasions and I saw the transition from Hondas and Acura to Hummers and sports cars, yachts and nice, big homes with movie rooms, outdoor fires places and such. I sat and listened to the conception of Unique Performance the very beginning you might say, it was all KHL but Doug’s baby you might say since he was the performance enthusiast Richard was the ego driven follower and Chris well he just went on the ride with Richard. Then I saw the first sign of trouble when KHL changed their PEO from AMS PEO to Infinet it read trouble under the old name which became true but the move to Infinet was smooth and not many hitches so Infinet began and Unique continued to become its thing. I saw jet airplane pictures big ideas and even bigger toys even big racing sponsorships, and then we see Infinet having trouble with its business practices and Law suits in California. Unique kept growing we saw big rigs OCC bikes and big exposure and again race sponsorships then all this started going away first the race sponsorships then Infinet then Unique WOW !! Unique I'm sure is just a drop in the bucket of a trail of unemployed individuals and lost and wasted money. Since I have seen them come from medical equipment sales to Insurance PEO sales and Performance car sales I'm sure they will pick themselves up again and become successful individuals. And as someone had mentioned Hasty being back in the Insurance industry I would not doubt this they are all probably taking a step backwards to regroup. It sucks to see such capable talent thrown down the drain with mismanagement in whatever way I would say someone lost sight of who was providing the money for the nice life but any good business knows the customer is always right. You must take care of them and the employees first then yourself not the other way around. Richard, Chris and Doug I'm sure you know who this is I hope the kids are all good and your transition to reality hits easy on the home front with the kids and family. To all the Unique, AMS PEO, and Infinet employees it sucks to be thought of after the last big check but I know some of you whom I met and you will pick up and move on not all employers think first of themselves. As to Fenimore he just spent the money he was allowed to spend they bought big fancy he bought cool fancy on their dime or the customers dime but in all KHL was the brain behind it all and they mismanaged or allowed the business' to be mismanaged, not Fenimore or any other employee, just KHL.

  53. It's interesting to watch all of the banter between the parties. This project was doomed from the beginning. I've followed this ridiculous case closely and have taken the time to read several lawsuits (see Sanderson vs. Unique, Wilhelm vs. Shelby, Shelby vs. Unique, Hasty vs. Wilhelm). According to the lawsuits and their affidavits, some insignificant CPA in California, Jon Wilhelm, goes to Steve Sanderson (a Shelby distributor) with an idea to manufacture and market vintage Mustangs that have been retrofitted with Shelby trinkets. These continuation Shelby Mustangs would be endorsed by Shelby and put in the Shelby Registry as real Shelbys. The difference between regular restored Mustangs and Shelby Mustangs was almost $100,000 at the time. Continuation Shelby Mustangs could sell for substantially more than regular Mustangs, but beneath the huge price being paid for original Shelby Mustangs. In theory, Wilhelm had a good idea. Naturally, Sanderson buys off on the idea and takes Wilhelm to talk with Carroll Shelby. Carroll says that he hates Ford, but they can do it if they want to. Sanderson gives Wilhelm a quarter of his business, and they are off to the races. The first manufacturer they talk with about doing their deal is Doug Hasty with Unique Motorcars (later known as Unique Performance). Wilhelm talks Hasty into making a few cars for Sanderson and him. Hasty signs Sanderson Sales' agreement which includes a clause not to go to Shelby directly. It also states that Unique agrees to pay Wilhelm and Sanderson 12% for every Shelby product produced by Unique. Within a matter of a few days, Hasty blows through his agreement with Sanderson Sales and goes to Shelby directly (according to Wilhelm's affidavit, Hasty went to L.A. under the guise of seeing a lap dancer he had met at the strip club near LAX -- he was also visiting Shelby Headquarters). Shelby, before it has written its verbal agreement between Carroll Shelby and Sanderson Sales, gives Unique a contract directly. Now there is this three way cluster going on: Hasty has the rights to manufacture cars for Shelby, Sanderson Sales has the rights from Shelby to market the cars, and Unique can only sell its cars to Sanderson Sales. Wilhelm claims in his suits that he and Steve Sanderson intended to have several companies manufacture these cars. Now they could only have one company, Unique, as the sole manufacturer of the continuation Shelby Mustangs.

    Within a year and a half, Hasty and Sanderson were successful in getting rid of Wilhelm, without any compensation for his idea and ownership in Sanderson Sales. Wilhelm would later sue Shelby about screwing up his deal (for $50 Million). Unique goes through the first year and only produces one car. Steve Sanderson can't support his company on 12% of one car, so he takes 50% advances from several of his many customers and kites the money. When Unique has its grand opening in October of 2003, they did an open invitation to the world to attend. Anyone who had paid an advance would certainly want to go to this gala event. Steve Sanderson got busted when about 4 people walk up to Hasty and ask to see their particular car. Hasty didn't realize he had a contract with them. About half a million dollars was floated by Sanderson, and he had nothing to say except he agreed to back out of the deal. For the first year and a half, Unique had been using the many 50% deposits Sanderson did pay to wine and dine Shelby and others into thinking that Unique was this great, successful company.

    After the gala, Hasty immediately went to Shelby and exposed Sanderson, forever messing up any future relationship that Steve Sanderson might have with Shelby. Now, Doug Hasty had successfully stolen the deal from Wilhelm and Sanderson. Hasty was now free to inflict his dishonesty on anyone he pleased, because Wilhelm and Sanderson weren't around anymore to look after their own interests. Sanderson eventually got pissed about getting kicked out of the deal he had thought he had taken from Wilhelm, so he sued Doug Hasty. Hasty eventually lost in arbitration and had to stroke a $650,000 check to Steve Sanderson. It turns out that all of that money Hasty used to pay Sanderson was from advances on cars.

    What Wilhelm and Sanderson did originally was to alter the agreement that Shelby used for the sale of its continuation Cobras. One thing they added was the requirement that Hasty had to provide the customer with a VIN number within a month of receipt of the deposit. They obviously didn't want to see any switcheroos from Hasty. Funny, Hasty couldn't help himself and switched those VINs anyways! He kicked Sanderson out of the deal for being behind on about 10 cars, and now Hasty is accused of being behind on 75 vehicles, possibly more. Funny thing, Steve Sanderson, who Doug Hasty touted as a big scoundrel, is reported to have paid back all of the deposits he borrowed/kited.

    It's rare that one sees a cheater punished for his bad deeds in such a short time. Doug Hasty stole the deal from Sanderson Sales, who stole it from Wilhelm. According to this reader, Hasty set the tone for this deal right from the start and now deserves everything the swindled car purchasers can throw at him. Good luck Dougie -- at least you'll still be in the car business making license plates!!!

Nice job Brent, you must have known who I was with the "only hitting on THREE cylinders". It was only a 4 banger but it was faster than anything you "built". Thanks for getting in there and verifying everything I said about you and then some. It's amazing how you are even more transparent on this blog than you are in person. Well....Hang in there little-guy! Can't wait to see the crater you leave in the ground with the AC thing.
    Oh....just in case you were wondering...he's either already, or working on, destroying the AC name as well. A good tip for those of you investing in the vintage auto market. Who knows where Doug is, but if I had to guess, he's probably screwing someone out of a buck or two.
    Glad to see some of you other guys speaking up finally. If we had done that a few years ago, maybe some of these customers would have gotten what they paid for, and these pricks may have gotten what they deserved. But.... it's hard to blow the whistle on something when so many dollars are being spent just to keep you in the dark about it.

    We all know that Unique Performance screwed all of us out of our money. Anyone tried to contact that old thief Shelby. I have left numerous messages at Shelby Autos' trying to get answer on who is responsible to build my car or return my funds. That old fart has turned my calls along with Doug. Didn't he put his name to these cars and doens't that make him responsible? I tried to contact the President of Shelby Amy Boylan to no avail. That ugly looking hermorphidite (doesn't she remind you of Pat from Saturday night live) hasn't returned my calls either. They are all crooks in my book.

Second, don't you guys know that Amy realizes she's unattractive and most people wonder if she pees standing up? GROW UP! The lady (yes LADY) just lost her job. Be kind! And why does Brent Fenimore get critisized? He may have messed up at Shelby, but Amy was able to repair everything. He wasn't anything big at Unique, so explain how he ruined that company also? Hes now a major player in the defense contracting business. Our boys in camo are fighting HIS equipment, so watcha think of that? Lastly, for all you haters who said he was nothing buy a worthless grease stain, I'll have you know hes a proud Grandpa and his granddaughter will be a huge R&B hiphop star, so suck it!

  66. I worked at Unique performance for a year and I loved it at first. But near the end of my first year I saw the company taking a turn I did not agree with. I attempted to talk with management about my dwelling issues with the way things were being run and what was going on. They basically told me that wasn't going on and they didnt see that happening. After a long debated talk I decided to resign rather continue with a sinking ship. Two years later 2007 Unique was shut down. I saw this coming and I got out ahead of time.
