1969 Ford Talladega with Uncle Tony’s Garage

Front to Rear Details

We were recently visited by Uncle Tony the YouTube star of Uncle Tony’s Garage Channel. He is a MOPAR guru but came out to our home and fell in love with our Blue Oval cars. After doing a video on our Daytona he had to come back and do the Talladega. Now, he will be back in a couple of weeks to do a side by side comparison of our Cale Yarborough Spoiler and Dan Gurney Spoiler II!

What do you think? Would you like to see some similar videos of other members’ cars? UTG can’t come out to you and do a professional shoot but do you have a high quality video of your car? How about the documentation of your restoration? Have you taken your car on a highway cruise with some friends? Send us your photos or a link to your video.

You might also want to check out this old Power Nation feature on the car done before we corrected some of the incorrect items. Jump to 9:20 on the timeline for the Talladega Feature.

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.
