CANCELED: 2020 WINGED WARRIORS/TALLADEGA FAMILY REUNION: CANCELED

CANCELED: 2020 WINGED WARRIORS/TALLADEGA FAMILY REUNION: CANCELED

We are sad to say that the 2020 Nashville Winged Warriors/Talladega Family Reunion has been canceled! We have struggled with this decision for months due to the COVID 19 virus. We are only three months out and it is reasonably impossible to continue to plan the event. We have been planning for this for three years and started diligently planning details last November. Since then the World has changed significantly.

Currently, nothing is really open in the Nashville area. Some restaurants are open but at greatly reduced capacity. The Grand Ole Opry is on radio and TV but has no live audiences. Locations and car collections we planned to tour are closed to the public. Many attendees have voiced a reluctance to travel and stay in hotels at the current time.

Please understand this was a very difficult decision but Katrina and I are even more motivated to put on the best possible event in 2021.

Yesterday it was announced that NASCAR CUP racing is returning to Nashville in 2021. Unfortunately, it will not be at the historic Tennessee State Fair Grounds but at the much newer (closed for the past ten years) Nashville Superspeedway. There is no schedule for that race as of yet. A rumored June 20th date has been kicked around. Maybe we can work something out to include that event with ours!

Whatever 2021 holds for us we will do our best to host a terrific event at that time.

If you have already made your hotel reservations PLEASE CANCEL them immediately.

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.
