2021 Aero Car Reunion Announced

Winged Warrior National Event

Here are our 2017 Talladega Spoiler Family Reunion attendees. A thrilled and knowledgeable group.

If you have not yet attended an Aero Car Reunion or one of our Talladega Spoiler Family Reunions, mark your calendar now for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 23 through Saturday, September 25, 2021. For clarity, our first event will start Thursday morning and the last one will be Saturday night. That means you should plan to check into your hotel on Wednesday the 22th and check out on Sunday the 26th. This will be a reunion similar to our previous events, but bigger and grander! It will officially be the Winged Warrior’s Nationals! Katrina and I will host their event here in Murfreesboro, TN. However, this event will also include the Daytona Superbird Club and our own Talladega Spoiler Registry Club!

Because of the ever changing COVID-19 Restrictions we can not yet tell you about what activities we will be offering. Although no details are yet available, you can plan on driving your car to some extraordinary places, visiting some of Nashville’s best spots, country music and even some time to show your car off and visit with other attendees! We will develop details over the next few months and keeping you posted. As always at our events will be family-friendly and casual.

There is no event Registration yet available, that will come as we continue to work on activities.

The Holiday Inn Silohill. You can see the truck and trailer parking area behind the hotel.

The host hotel is the Holiday Inn Silohill in Murfreesboro, TN. You can book your rooms now! We have a block of 60 rooms at a rate of $115 plus tax per night without breakfast or $123.50 per night with two breakfast tickets. There is a restaurant on-site with breakfast available. Ask for the Winged Warriors rate. The hotel is offering us truck and trailer parking immediately behind the hotel on a large grassy area. More details on this will follow. The hotel is near the exit from I-24 Medical Center Parkway in Murfreesboro, TN. There are many restaurants in the area and a major outdoor shopping mall, The Avenues.  There are 5,000 hotel rooms in Murfreesboro. You may find rooms at a lower rate and you certainly will find them at a higher rate, but beware of poor locations and avoid “seedy” hotels. You may also have difficulty with parking of trucks and trailers at most hotels. Murfreesboro has many tourists because of its proximity to Nashville, and we also have many conventions and sports competitions going on within Murfreesboro during the year that creates an enormous demand for rooms. Please book your room early!

Here is how you can book your room now. Please read the hotel’s requirements for the proper procedures.

You can also call the Hotel directly and make a reservation. Make sure you tell them it is for the Winged Warriors event. The hotel’s number is (615) 751-5300, press 0 for the front desk and give the block name, Winged Warriors or the block code WWR. If you have questions or problems, please contact me at rfleener@comcast.net.

This is going to be a tough year to plan such an event. COVID-19 restrictions and related issues make it nearly impossible to know how many cars and people to plan for. To plan the best possible event, we need a good estimate of how many people and cars will be attending. If you THINK you will attend PLEASE drop me an email at rfleener@comcast.net as soon as possible. This is NOT your Registration and will not be binding but will help us plan number appropriate activities. Once we have an estimate of the number attending, we will post specific activities and Registration procedures. For now, let us know if you plan to attend and reserve your room before the host hotel is booked. It will help tremendously if you tell us if you will be bringing a car, will you need trailer parking and how many people will attend.

Mark your calendar now for our 2021 event beginning Thursday, September 23, 2020, through Saturday, September 26th. If you have attended one of our events in the past, you know you will have fun. We prefer our events to be casual, family-friendly and provide lots of opportunities for you to enjoy meeting new friends.

Here is one of our Reunions held at the Keenland Concours in Lexington, KY.

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.
