Current Issue of Quicksilver - Winter 2019
Update 1-6-19: The upcoming Winter 2019 issue of Quicksilver magazine has been sent to the printer. It features Tom Maruska’s start of his restoration of the 1956 XM Turnpike Cruiser concept car, which he found in awful condition after it had been stored for decades outside in Michigan and California.
There is plenty of information on the 2019 IMOA show, to be held Aug. 1-3, 2019, in Dayton, Ohio. Trips include to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, the Halderman Museum (he designed the Mustang and the 1968-69 Mercury Montego/Cyclone) and America’s Packard Museum. The new show story is in the Events section; Registration forms are available online here: 2019 IMOA NATIONAL SHOW updated 11-14-18
For those who sent in Members’ Classics submissions the past few months, the section returns after being held from the Fall issue because of the extensive coverage of the annual IMOA show held in September. There is also continued coverage of that show from author Gregg Merksamer that looks at some of the non-award cars from the show.
The Winter issue also features news from Mercurys appearing at the Ford Product Development Show and Concours d’ Elegance of America; an overview of the career of the late David Pearson; a solution to a light switch repair for a 1952 Mercury; IMOA President Jerry Robbin’s review of the 2019 Ford Edge ST; Members’ Classic, Letters to the Editor and more.
There is also 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
