Dan Larson, Pickup/Delivery Specialist/Detail
I have been involved with cars since high school. My first project was a 1955 Chevrolet 2dr Post. Then I bought a 1957 Ford Pickup in a junkyard and went crazy with it: Sunburst Rose paint, tuck and roll interior, dodge lancer spinners, always liked trucks. I have also owned Corvettes since 1972. Jay talked me into a Boss 302 so the Corvette has to share garage space. I also raced sports cars for 10 years at BIR and Elkhart Lake. For the last 5 years I have been working at Unique after retiring from Kato Engineering. I enjoyed working on cars for years and now I work with cars again! I deliver and pickup cars for consignemnet and detail as well!

It is great to see the staff at Unique working together to grow the business. I am honored to be a part of the Unique Classic Cars team.
