Unique Performance Bankruptcy Auction

A friend sent me this link for the auction. It looks like there are a lot of half done fastback mustangs getting ready to be sold off.

Hate to see a hot-rodding company go broke.

Makes me wonder what went wrong.

I have a bad feeling there will be more " custom" car companies go under soon.

I think they just keep changing their name. I have read on a few other forums about all the owners they have duped our of their deposits and never received their cars. They are no different then all the stories you hear about these guys except for they keep getting away with it.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting.."holy crap.... what a ride!"

Take a look now. I can't believe what these idiots are paying for stuff. Two of my friends went over to look at the stuff yesterday. Said that the mustange shells looked like they were pulled out of the ocean. People are paying more than new prices for some of that stuff. 135 mig welders for over $400. A small welding table for $700. I find them on craigslist for 100 all the time. What morons. There was some nice stuff there but these people are way over bidding on some of this stuff. The huge "gon in 60" banner went for 10g's

I bid on a couple items, but couldn't go any higher. Some idiots was bidding up to 19K on a fastback shell with a non-transferrable title. I don't get it.
