Alan Miller, What are you Working On?

The shinny part is the new patch panel for the radiator support.

Last time we told you one of the items Dr. Cyclone was producing, now he is helping our friend, Fireball (Alan Miller) replace needed pieces. It seems the Doctor enjoys building those parts that someone needs but are not commonly found.

This time around it is a patch panel for the radiator support. That piece under the battery box that is likely to rust out, he is making a patch for it. There were so few 68/69 Cyclones and they all share common rust issues. Finding a good parts car with the parts you need is a real challenge.

Fireball, is similar to the Doctor, he loves to take the worst car he can find and save it. Luckily, he has the skills to do the repairs and a friend in Tom who will make him the parts he needs. What with the message scribbled on the patch panel maybe Dr. Cyclone should be called Santa Cyclone for all the great gifts he can deliver?

About the Author: 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.
