Miniature Wonderland


By now most of us have seen the emails containing photos of remarkable miniature cars in static poses that are remarkably difficult to distinguish from the real thing. Most of us at one time or another built a model car from one of the plastic kits. Many of us have also owned an electric train set and dreamed of an elaborate layout with all kinds of realistic scenery.

Although I did not see one Ford Talladega or Mercury Spoiler in this video I believe you will enjoy it. As you watch it remember the frustration you experienced in building those model cars back in the day!


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.
