Last Production Talladega at Forge Muscle Car Show

The Ford Talladega “Family Reunion” will be held in conjunction with the Forge Muscle Car show on October 1 and 2, 2010 in Kingsport Tennessee. The Feature car at the show this year is the 1969 Ford Talladega. Among the special Talladega cars that will be featured are the first production and last production Talladegas.

It is extremely rare that both the first and last versions of a limited production run both survive and even rarer to have them both in the same location at onetime. You may have thought that all Talladegas were built exactly the same. That is the common belief and statement made by collectors. However, there are some differences and visitors to the show will get the opportunity to see the small detail differences in the production cars as well as how the prototypes and pilot cars differed from the production cars.

The last production Talladega is currently owned by James Myers of Texas. If you want to read and see more about this historical vehicle from the days of Ford racing simply Click Here.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
