50th Anniversary Photos

Several weeks ago I asked for reader contributions of photos and stories about cars from the 1969 time period. The response has been totally absent of any contributions. I can’t be the .only one with old photos and stories. I am putting up a couple of photos from my archives in hope they will stimulate […]

What is it?

Questions of all kinds often cross my desk. Some are easy and common and some are unusual. I recently had one from Frank Durso about a bracket he found under his Talladega. He wanted to know if it was exclusive to the Talladega or did the Spoiler II also have this part. Here is a […]

What Kind of Talladega Aero Cars Are Left?

What Kind of Talladega Aero Cars Are Left?

The last article I need seemed to generate some interest and the info is already out of date. Within 24 hours we had two more Talladegas Registered! Team Member Carl Sharp had a great question.

I am often asked how many Talladega Aero Cars were really built. The next question is inevitably how many are left? Both questions are difficult to answer accurately. There are lots of rumors about Ford never building 750 +- Talladegas. However, no one has ever provided any real evidence other than “he said, they said” […]
