Last Chance; 2017 Talladega Family Reunion

If you have not registered for the 2017 Talladega Family Reunion we are just about full. I will be closing registration very soon. If you are interested and have not yet done so please go to this link and get yours in as soon as possible.

So far we have people coming from 13 different states plus a family from AUSTRALIA! Wow, what a turn out and Registration is still open but will close soon.

If you have a local hotel reserved please provide the hotel’s name and phone number so in case of emergencies or last minute schedule changes I know where to reach you.

Katrina and I are still working on the final schedule of activities but I can tell you Friday activities will be primarily at our home. Saturday will include a driving trip of approximately 150 miles. I visited one of the locations on Saturday and I guarantee you will be blown away. This stop will be to visit a private collection. It is described as 20,000 square feet of stuff crammed into a 5,000 square Foot building.  Among the collection are cars, pedal cars, gas pumps, oil cans, signs, marble balls, clocks, stereoscopes, photographs, paintings, Civil War items, masks, a phone booth and even an entire wall from a building. I can also tell you that it was enough for the Pickers from American Pickers (Antique Archaeology) on the History Channel to come see him! If you see something you like he may even be willing to dicker with you!

This is not photoshopped…..it is a small part of what you will see.

 

I will provide you with more info as we get closer to the date.

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.
