First Annual 1969 Ford Talladega Family Reunion Participants

The car in front is the Banjo Matthews Prototype, the white car is the very First Production Talladega, the maroon car is the Last Production Talladega.

I will start off apologizing for anyone I missed at the show. There were some beautiful and exceptional cars in attendance. I tried to get a picture of every car and every owner but it was nearly impossible to catch everyone. I did my best and hope that no one is too disappointed. If I did miss you and you have a photo of your car at the show forward it to me and I will insert it into this page. We counted 15 Talladega and 10 Spoiler/Spoiler II cars at the show.

We are finding more and more information on the Talladega but still missing almost all historical data on the Spoilers. Does anyone have any history they would like to share? PLEASE send what ever you have to us. We would like for you to also send us any data you might have on VINs for these cars. There are hardly any records for the VINs and we would like to build as complete of list as is possible. If you have a Spoiler or Spoiler II email us the VIN and be assured that it will not be published or used in anyway to invade your privacy.

Here is our (Richard and Katrina Fleener) car; the First Production Talladega!

Here is the Last Production Talladega owned by Jim and Marlene Myers!

Jason Thompson’s just restored “Banjo Matthews” Prototype Talladega.

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 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. You can see more about that part of our lives at
