What Are You Working On?

This is one of my favorite topics. I think we all enjoy our projects and it is great fun to see how others are progressing on theirs’. One of the cars I am really anxious to see completed is that of Rich Turner and his Tiny Lund tribute car. Rich recently sent us some new photos and he must be beside himself waiting to finish this project.

This red, black and white paint scheme has been one of my all time favorites of the Bud Moore era.

Great work Rich! We certainly want to see this one at the Reunion in Talladega next year!

I have a spare 68 body in my shop wonder if Rich wants to build another one?

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.
