Junked Talladega Found

Here is a challenge for all of you. The article below was just published in the July 19, 2012 issue of Old Cars Weekly News & Market Place. It states that a 1969 Ford Talladega that was junked 25 years ago. A Dewey Brooks of Wonewoc, Wisconsin reports that the car had been sitting in the woods but is now gone. If anyone knows Mr. Brooks or the VIN of this rare Talladega could you please pass the information on to us at the Registry. It is important that we accurately track all of these cars that we can find.

It would also be interesting to know how complete or incomplete this car is as well as what the new owner has intended for it.

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.
