Our Talladega Family Reunion at the Fairlane Club of America national meet is only a week away; June 26-27, 2015! This should be one of the highlights of the year for many of us. Included with a slight charge are the parade laps at the Bristol Motor Speedway. There will also be a Judged Show, non-judged show, Awards presentation and lots of activities for the kids and family.

It is being held at the Meadowview Marriott Conference and Convention Center, 1901 Meadowview Pkwy, Kingsport, TN 37660. This is a beautiful location and near one of the most beautiful parts of America, the Great Smokey Mountains. You could spend a lifetime in the area and never see it all!

Pre-Registration has closed but you can still Register at the meet beginning on Thursday.

I have not yet received a large number of emails from Members who plan to attend but I hope most of you will Register on site. There will be lots of great things to do and, as always, the camaraderie of fellow Ford guys and gals is the best part. Katrina and I hope to see all of you there. Remember your car does not need to be perfect or a show car. We love and appreciate all project cars as well as trailer queens!

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.

  1. Just about ready to go! Picked up the trailer today and got it leveled out with the car in it behind my Suburban. Plan is to be in Kingsport late Thursday afternoon. Hoping the “isolated” thunderstorms in the forecast all weekend remain isolated to another part of the country! See you guys there. – Mark
