FeaturedOn TourTalladega Family Reunion

Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals

The Ford Aero cars are about to go big time. Hold on to your titles, pack your bags and buy a warm coat. On November 16, 17 and 18, 2012 the Blue Oval collectors are all going to gather in Chicago for the third Talladega Family Reunion! Like previous years the Reunion will be held within a larger show. In 2012 it will be the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. This is a terrific opportunity to display your 1969 Ford Aero cars at one of the most prestigious muscle car events of the year.

As a result of Jason Thompson taking his Red Banjo Matthews Ford Talladega Prototype car (Watch for this car at the 2012 Scottsdale Barrett Jackson auction) to the 2011 show Bob Ashton, the main promoter of the show, is creating room for a very special Ford Aero display in the 2012 Show. Jason states that he has been working with Bob for the last month and the show is considering having a group of winged MOPARs on one side of an isle and a group of Aero Ford family cars on the other.

This will be the 2012 Talladega Family Reunion event which includes all 1969 Ford Talladegas, Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II Dan Gurney, and Cale Yarbrough cars. (No clones!) This will be a huge show with lots of super rare cars.  Click Here and check out some pictures from the 2011 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals and see what others have said about the show. Jason estimates that they had approximately 540 cars on display this year but had over 2500 applications wanting to attend!

If you own one of these cars his is a great opportunity for your car to be placed on the same pedestal as all of the other super cars (This year they had eighteen ZL1 Camaros and five 1971 Hemi Cuda convertibles!). You will also have the opportunity to meet with other Ford Aero car owners and even Register your car in the Talladega Spoiler Registry.

If you are interested please contact Jason Thompson as soon as possible.  Send your email AND mailing address to:

Once Jason has a group of names to send in Bob will send each of us a special invitation/application and hotel information. Don’t delay!

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.
