Wow, WOW, WOW! The 2017 Talladega Spoiler Family Reunion is over. If you missed this one you missed a great one. We had a fantastic turn out of Talladega Spoiler Family Members and some great cars. We had more new attendees this year than ever. I will going over more details of the event in the next few days and weeks but trust me, as soon as I announce the 2018 event you need to get your reservations in. This year our long distance recognition goes to Chris, Rebecca and Lachian McQuade from Sydney Australia. They are wonderful people and we hope to see them back in 2019 for the Talladega Speedway event.
Katrina and I feel very humbled and honored at the response from this year’s attendees. From first thing in the morning over coffee and donuts until well into the evening there were Ford/Mercury Aero Car guys and gals hanging out talking about anything related to the cars. There were some great new friendships created and many old strong ones reinforced.
I was especially taken by how well and how fast the veterans of these events welcomed the first timers. Several of the newbies said they were a little afraid their cars were not good enough to bring and other were afraid to ask “dumb” questions. Within minutes they found out every car is not only welcome but appreciated for what it is. We all started with rough cars and some of us still have them. There are no dumb questions, no one pretends to know everything in our group and everyone is anxious to hear more stories and learn more trivia.
Please join us and help us grow. Here are some photos to wet your appetite for the stories that are coming.
Our second day of the Reunion was a 169 mile road tour with several very interesting stops.
Much much more to come on the Reunion in upcoming articles.
