Morgan Shepherd Comic; Part 1

The Wood Brothers have had a prestigious list of race drivers in their cars over the years. Although Morgan Shepherd never drove one of our Aero Cars he was never the less one of the Wood Brothers racing family. In the 1990’s Vortex Comics did a series of comic books on NASCAR drivers of the […]

1969 Ford Talladega, an Introduction

1969 Ford Talladega, an Introduction

1969 Ford Talladega; How and Why was it Built? Unlike today, in 1969 NASCAR raced Stock Cars; race cars built from cars straight off the show room floor! The Daytona 500 in 1969 was the beginning of the AERO WARS on the new NASCAR Super Speedways.  This automotive war resulted in the Ford Talladega, Mercury […]

1971 Daytona 500

  By 1971 the Aero Wars that began in 1969 were over. The first showing of the cars was 50 years ago in Daytona with the arrival of the Ford Talladega and Dodge Charger 500. The battle grew wilder and wilder all year with the addition of the Ford Boss 429 engine and the Mercury […]

1969 Atlanta 500

If you were not there in 1969 all our NASCAR Aero Car racing was not on TV from flag to flag. We had Wide World of Sports! When we got flag to flag coverage for the first time you couldn’t drag me away from the TV. How things have changed. Now, it seems we have […]

On April 17, 1964 Ford first showed the new Mustang at the Worlds […]

What is an Aero Car?

When asked what is an Aero Car, most of us will say it is the 1969 Ford Talladega, Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II, Dodge Daytona, Dodge Charger 500 and 1970 Plymouth Superbird. If you answered this way you are WRONG! These are the Aero Cars we love but are they the only ones? Trick Question? This […]

What Are You Working ON? Frank Durso

If you follow this site regularly you have heard of Frank Durso before. He must have a four leaf clover embedded in his hip. He has a real knack for finding and acquiring some very desirable and rare stuff. It all started when he located a rough Talladega and went wild from there. He came […]

Sherri and Bill’s LeeRoy Yarbrough

It seems like we pay a lot of attention on this site on how to restore a Talladega or Spoiler II back to the way the factory built the car. Such restorations take an extreme amount of knowledge, patients, technical skill and a suitcase full of greenbacks. The results can be very rewarding and we […]

David Pearson Cobra; Part 2

David Pearson Cobra; Part 2

The HotRod.com article we posted earlier about the David Pearson’s 1969 Cobra that Ford and Holman Moody built for him generated some additional information. Alan Miller arguably has every car magazine article ever published. What is even more amazing is that he can remember what is in all of them. Heck, I get this months […]
