Dr. Cyclone Comes Up With Some More Cures!

Dr. Cyclone, Tom Wilson, was a very busy Santa’s helper over the Holidays. He continued to develop more cures for ailing Cyclones. At times he is a plastic surgeon helping replace ugly surface skin and other times he is an orthopedic surgeon repairing the skeleton of our beloved cars.

Our Dr. Cyclone is always working up new replacement parts that are unavailable from other sources. As most of you know, there are a few (some but still not enough) patch panels for the Fairlane/Talladega but when it comes to the Mercury Cyclones, until there wast the Dr., we had none.

Here are the most recent cures produced by Tom at his mysterious midnight laboratory near Atlanta.

If you would like to reach Dr. Cyclone, Tom Wilson, you can do so by phone or text 770-757-1508.

This should get everyone excited because it is the die for the passenger side lower rear quarter panel. The Dr. will also be doing the driver side. I already have my order in for a pair of these!

Rumor has it that the Dr.’s next cure under study might involve Spoiler II specific parts!

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.
