Current Issue of Quicksilver - Fall 2019
Most of the Fall issue is devoted to the 2019 annual IMOA show held in Dayton, Ohio – the issue is at the printer and will arrive in a couple of weeks. The issue features the award winners and a roundup of the show; a note that other cars at the show will appear in the Winter 2020 issue. Members’ Classics and other stories sent in the past few months were also held over until winter.
The location of the 2020 IMOA show is already announced – the Greater Denver area in Colorado. Our host hotel will be in Westminster, with trips to events in Golden. There are also options to visit attractions in Denver. All of these locations are about 15 miles apart. Look under Events to find out initial information; more will be added in future issues of Quicksilver and the Website. A note that the Sunday All-Ford Show in Golden is free to attend, but to register a car for display will require a registration separate from the IMOA registration.

The Fall issue also features the latest restoration update of the 1956 XM Turnpike Cruiser by Tom Maruska, blue-themed Mercurys written up by Rob May; IMOA President Jerry Robbin writes about the 2019 Ford Transit Connect; and Carlos Vera has highlights of the Golden, Colo., All-Ford Show that featured many Mercurys.
The Fall Classifieds are already posted in the Classifieds section.
There is a modification of the New Membership application form. The first page is a roundup of member benefits with the second page the actual form to fill out to apply. The purpose is for IMOA members to hand out the form to Mercury owners they come across who are not aware of the club. For those who do not want to tear out the back-to-back page from the magazine, the forms can be downloaded from here: IMOA New Member Registration
