I don't know of any in or near Dallas, but there is one in Kansas by the name of Tom Wilhite. I don't have any contact information for him though. He was featured in HPP a time or two and I have a friend, in Kansas, that knows him. Let us know what you're building and for what purpose, street, street/strip, or strip only. By the way, welcome to the site! Bill
