Cam Crawford’s Right Hand Drive Race Car

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting our Kiwi Team Members you have been missing out. They are a group of hard core Ford/Mercury Aero cars guys who regularly visit the US during their “Down Under” New Zealand winter which just happens to be our summer. They have attended the last couple of Tim Wellborn’s Aero Car Reunions and have visited our home on more than one occasion. Cam Crawford and, as Cam calls them, the Fabulous Pegler Brothers, Andrew and Robert.

This article is a copy sent to me by Robert Pegler. It is from a New Zealand magazine, TheMotorHood.com┬áCheck out their web site for what’s happening in New Zealand’s auto community.

Cam’s build is fantastic and would be a welcome addition to any Blue Oval fan’s garage. Here is a photo of what he started with.

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.
