Ford Wins Le Mans

Dan-Gurney-AJ-Foyt-Le-Mans-GT40-MarkIV-1967

In 1966, 1967, 1968, and 1969 Ford dominated Le Mans. Listen to how they did it and what it means for Ford in 2013. You will also hear from Dan Gurney. Remember Dan started the spraying of Champaign at his Le Mans win. No one had done it previously, now it is standard procedure.

If you think Le Mans is just another race and can’t be that difficult watch this Sterling Moss video and imagine doing this over and over again for 24 hours!

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.
