Celebrating Talladega

How do you like to use and show off your Talladega/Spoiler? We want to hear from you, with photos. If your car is sitting in the garage and not out being used or shown you are missing out on a lot of fun. One of our fellow Registered Talladega owners, Bud Smith from Florida had a special way to celebrate the recent Talladega NASCAR race. Here is the note he recently sent to us along with a photo. Some guys talk about their car being a “Chick Magnet” and I think Bud’s car qualifies!

On April 17  (Sunday) in honor of the Talladega race, Bud displayed his Taladega at a Winghouse Restaurant in Clearwater, FL.   The car was well received and he received a lot of compliments from the patrons who viewed the car. Bud says that he believes we won a lot of new admirers of the Talladega.   The people viewing the car learned a lot of history about the Talladega.  What more could you ask for:  A beautiful car, beautiful weather and beautiful women.


Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
