As we get ready to watch the 2011 Daytona 500 let us not forget that 0ur cars were built to race the super speedways. If it wasn’t for these tracks and these races none of us would have the cars we love. The 1969 Daytona 500 was the unveiling of the Ford Aero Race Cars. Check out this video it must have been a Ford promotional piece there is hardly a Dodge in sight that isn’t wrecked!
About the Author: Some of my first memories and strongest memories of my childhood relate to cars. I still remember back when things happened based on what car I was drinving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on a unique and rare muscle car. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and their only purpose was to win NASCAR races using their 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 for sure. This site is devoted to them and their owners past and present.
