We all know that Mercury built a Cale Yarborough Special to honor a great race car driver. The 1969 Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II cars were street versions of Cale’s race car. Why did the Mercury executives believe that he deserved such an honor?
How much do you know about Cale? Unless you are a real diehard Cale fan you probably will learn a tremendous amount in this three part video. Here are a couple of teasers.
