Speedway Fords & Mercury – Talladega

This is our first in a series of historical article reprints from the early 1980s Club Speedway Fords & Mercury. Our first article may contain the name of a person you are familiar with, Steve Honnel. You may also recognise the name Don Amadio on the artwork. Both are active in the Registry and our Reunions.

Now, as you read through these please remember all of the information included in them is dated 1981 and newer information may be available but this is what was known then.


Check back next week and we will have more information. Do you have any info like this you would like to share? Contact: rfleener@comcast.net

Thank you to Steve Marek for sharing these old newsletters with our visitors!



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.
