Cale Yarborough Spoiler II from Finland

One of our Team Members, Heikki Tahvanainen, lives in Finland and has this recently completed Cale Yarborough Spoiler II. As you can see from the photos below this is not a factory original car. Heikki has completed extensive modifications to make this one of the meanest Spoiler IIs anywhere. I have asked for more details on the car and hope to have them for you soon. In the mean time study the pictures and see if you have an idea of what he has done to make this car stand out anywhere in the World.


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.

  1. I like it! He can shim the fender to match the hood line.I wonder if the fenders are modified W nose fenders or were the fenders unrolled to match the rockers.The COMP PROVEN graphics are a nice touch.I am so stealing that idea.Nice job.
