The Talladega

In 1969 David Pearson "The Silver Fox" at Talladega's debut race The UAW Ford 500. GM had pulled back and it was the Ford's vs. the Mopar's with the Ford Talladega Torino winning the Championship which was David Pearson's 3rd. But this really isn't about David... it's about Talladega...the car!! Ford produced a street version called the "Talladega" in 1969. It was based on the Torino chassis and only 754 of them were built. It came in 3 colors, white, blue or maroon and try to find one today!!!

Super Ford!!!

That car is awesome. I just read your other blog about Tony Stewart. I totally agree with you on the subject.
