I didn't see a Talledaga in there. The orange one was a Cyclone. The tilt body Phaeton looks like Jim Greens car out of Jim Greens Speed Shop in Lynnwood, WA. He's an old school big block Ford guy. If it's the same car, I first saw it on a cruise nite back in the early 80's.

Ohh must be a 68 Cyclone then... I should have known from that slight pointy nose it has.....

I had a 70 Cyclone (Montigo MX) the one with the really pointy nose ( almost 2 feet of pointy nose) on it... wish I still had that bugger..... that car that had crosshairs for a front orniment. (Chevy hunter)

The only problem, I could never line up a Chevy in the crosshairs.... they were always behind me...(laughs)

Nice pictures!

What's with the blue tape around the gas caps on a couple of the cars?

I've seen the orange 427 SOHC powered Galaxy at Knott's Fabulous Fords Forever show a couple years ago. If not it was one just like it.

I think the blue tape is there to prevent any mishaps with vapors escaping and igniting from a cell phone spark. It was an indoor event, so I guess the risk is higher. Plus AZ is very dry.

Ive never seen so many quality Fords before. AWESOME.
I cant believe that that many SOHC engines still exist!! I bet thats all of them though.
