For many years one of the questions often asked when Aero Car folks got together is: “Do you know where the David Pearson Talladega is?”. The rumor was that Ford have given David a brand new Talladega painted in his official 1968/69 race colors as a reward for winning consecutive NASCAR Championships in 68 and 69. Most stories had it with just a few miles on the car and never driven. Of course everyone wanted to be the person who found it.
Well, that story is only partially true and the real story is every bit as interesting. HotRod.com was the one to find the car and the true story behind it. A link to their article is provided, Click Here.
