Aero Warriors Display at 2012 Muscle Car Corvette Nationals

One of the best displays at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals was the Aero Cars. These include the Ford Talladega, Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II as well as the Dodge Charger 500, Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird. As in production numbers the MOPARS out numbered the Blue Oval cars. Our Talladega Family Reunion for 2012 was held in conjunction with the show and our representation was a little lower in low numbers than the previous three Reunions but was off set by high quality and rarity. The Banjo Mathews white prototype, factory custom Bunkie Knudsen yellow Talladega, last and first production Talladegas and many others as will as two Cale Yarborough Spoiler II cars were present. Missing in our group were any Spoilers and no Dan Gurney cars. Come on guys you with Spoilers and Gurneys get your cars out and let us see them.

Here is the www.LegendaryCollectorCars.com video of the display.

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.
