Bunkie Knudsen Talladega Restoration Unveiled at Forge Muscle Car Classic

We just returned from another fantastic Forge Muscle Car Classic in Sevierville, TN. The car count was low but the quality was high. This year as last the show incorporated the Talladega Family Reunion for all Ford Talladega and Spoiler cars. There were over 20 of these fabulously rare cars in attendance and had center stage for the entire event. Foremost among these was the Michael Troell owned Bunkie Knudsen car. This is one very special car, it was the personal car of 1969 Ford President, Bunkie Knudsen, and built at his personal request and to his specifications.

In a few days we will go into more detail on the show and this special car but for now here are a few teaser photos to wet your appetite.

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
