Dodge Daytona, Superbird, Talladega and Spoiler II at Texas Motor Speedway

Recently, the big guns returned to where they never were. When these gun fighters were shooting it out on the Super Speedways in 1969 the Texas Motor Speedway did not exist. The Dodge Daytona, Plymouth Superbird, Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II were the aero cars that dominated the sport back in the day. They were never able to turn a wheel at this speedway until recently.

Marty Burke, Team Member in the Talladega Spoiler Registry, reports that he recently took his Talladega and Spoiler II out to play with a couple of Mopars on the asphalt at Texas Motor Speedway for the cameras of Motor Trend Classic. It was a long day of play and hard work.

How hard can work be when you have four beautiful cars like this running at speeds over 100 MPH and have one of the more respected magazine franchises taking pictures of your car? This was a once in a life time event for any gearhead.

If you are out having some fun with your car and want to share it with others; send us a story with photos.

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
