This is our first in a series of historical article reprints from the early 1980s Club Speedway Fords & Mercury. Our first article may contain the name of a person you are familiar with, Steve Honnel. You may also recognise the name Don Amadio on the artwork. Both are active in the Registry and our Reunions.
Now, as you read through these please remember all of the information included in them is dated 1981 and newer information may be available but this is what was known then.
Check back next week and we will have more information. Do you have any info like this you would like to share? Contact: email@example.com
Thank you to Steve Marek for sharing these old newsletters with our visitors!
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.
