Talladega Spoiler Family Reunion 2017

The reason our events are called the “Talladega Spoiler FAMILY Reunion” is because they are as much about the people as the cars and it often feels like a FAMILY reunion! Picture is from the 2016 Reunion.

We have been overwhelmed with the number of you interested in the 2017 Talladega Family Reunion. Because this could be a much larger group than we have had before a formal Pre-Registration Form is required. The dates are Friday October 20 and Saturday October 21, 2017. It will be held in Murfreesboro, TN just south of Nashville.

The schedule of events has not yet been finalized but will likely include a half day short driving Tour; a couple of informal technical garage sessions will be held and may include Dr. Cyclone (who said he will bring some of his new parts along), The Archaeologist and The Judge may even show up; a swap meet by attendees; and other surprises.

Of course, Katrina and I will host an evening Tennessee BQ meal with all the “fixins”.

All activities will be held or initiate at our home unless otherwise specified. This is a very informal event and is family friendly. Many of you attended last year and some have attended everyone of our Reunions over the past 7 or 8 years but I believe we will have a number of folks who have never attended before.

You do not need to bring your car or even own one. If you, we encourage you to bring your car. It can be a show car, driver or a project car that will sit on your trailer all weekend; it makes no difference to anyone in attendance. We all love the cars and everyone’s car is appreciated. (1968 Color Code and 1969 GT 500s are also welcome as are Petty Torinos)

If you don’t own one of Ford Motor Company’s 1969 Aero Cars but want to, this is the perfect event for you. Some of our group have multiple cars and will be happy to help you find that perfect match for you. I can personally guarantee that what ever car, weather it be a Talladega, Spoiler or Spoiler II, you will see it at the Reunion! Many previous attendees came just to see what the cars look like and how they go together.

Here is one of our Reunions held at the Keenland Concours in Lexington, KY.

As of now we do not expect to have a host hotel and encourage you to make your own reservations as soon as possible. For convince and safety I suggest you secure a hotel near I-24 and Gateway Medical Center Parkway (first choice) or I-24 and Old Fort Parkway (second choice). These will be the more expensive hotels but will also have the best security for parking.

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.
