FCA Nationals 2019 Dayton Ohio

Five areo warriors lined up together. Don’t see that very often. Steven Lueck from Mukwonago WI. Mike Callahan from Cincinnati OH. Carl Sharp from Liberty IN. Mark Shilladay from Brentwood NH. Dave Moots from North Prairie WI.

 

You may know some of these guys. The pictures and information were provided by Michael Callahan. I find the story on the #21 Cale Yarborough Fairlane very interesting. I remember when this car was for sale on eBay and I too shrugged it off as a cheap backyard clone. WRONG!

 

Jim Ozinga from Thompson Ohio brought his beautiful restored blue Talladega to be concours judged.

Interesting history on this display car built for Firestone back in the day.

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.
