We never get tired of hearing about Mike Callahan’s adventures with his Spoiler II. At this time of year, Mike’s mind begins to focus on how fast he can go at Bonneville and how many miles he will put on his Mercury out meeting new friends in the car hobby. Here are Mike’s most recent photos and words about his preparation for Bonneville 2024.

Thanks, Mike, hope to see you soon, and stay safe on your adventures towards 200 mph!


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.
