I always enjoy seeing the cars our Team Members pick up and begin working on as projects. It is especially interesting when the cars are not located in US!. I recently received an email from Team Member Sven Busch regarding his recent acquisition. He lives in Bavaria and speaks German. He has some fluency in English but is limited in his abilities to converse in it. He sent along some great photos of what he is working on and I can tell he is very proud and excited about his project. What do you think of what he is working on?
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.
