FeaturedFord TalladegaTalladega Family Reunion



2014 is going to be an active year for the Ford bunch. We have already alerted you to the very special Talladega Family Reunion that will be held at the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance in Lexington KY July 19th. Another 45th Anniversary event you may want to take in is the Tim Lopata managed Fun Ford Weekend / MOPAR Thunder event at the Bristol dragway in Bristol TN. Tim is a great friend and supporter of our Aero Fords. He has been extremely helpful in supporting our previous Talladega Family Reunions. He has also shown us some great times at the Bristol NASCAR event displays.

This year Tim is again putting on what could be another memorable event at Bristol. He is returning to run the Fun Ford Weekend / MOPAR Thunder event on August 29-30 2014. This two day event features the show and drag racing we expect at Bristol every year. This year they are also going to add a Mustang 50th gathering and have invited us all to do a 45th Talladega/Spoiler reunion. Of course, I imagine some MOPAR guys will be celebrating their 45th Winged Dodge Daytona Anniversary as well.

It’s Bristol !!!! Barring rain, there will also be speedway track laps, drag racing, vendors, swap meet and more.

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.
