The Wood Brothers have had a prestigious list of race drivers in their cars over the years. Although Morgan Shepherd never drove one of our Aero Cars he was never the less one of the Wood Brothers racing family. In the 1990’s Vortex Comics did a series of comic books on NASCAR drivers of the day. The list ranged from Richard Petty to Bill Elliott, Junior Johnson and more. We have shown you some of them in the past and will bring you more in the future. Today is Part 1 of Morgan Shepherd, the early years.
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.
