Current Issue of Quicksilver - Fall 2016
The main part of the Fall 2016 issue is a roundup of the 2016 International Mercury Owners’ Association annual show that was held in Louisville, Ky., in July. Pat Eager and Virgil Klein wrote a main story that is already posted in the Blog section. Those interested in who won awards can see them in a separate entry in the Blog section.
Next year’s IMOA annual show will be held Sept. 7-9 in Wisconsin, with a highlight being a visit to Elkhart Lake’s Road America, where members will be able to take paced laps on the racetrack. The host hotel will be the Blue Harbor Resort on the shore of Lake Michigan in Sheboygan. That story is already online in the Events section. Registration forms for the 2017 show are here: imoa-2017-show-registration-forms
There’s much more to the issue, however, with IMOA member Jesse Patton taking a look at the teapot carburetors used in 1952-53 Mercurys and the problems using ethanol fuel with them; Mercurys at a Billings, Mont., show; a tour of the Mississippi River region in Wisconsin and Iowa; IMOA President Jerry Robbin test drives the 2017 Ford Super Duty F250 truck; regular columnist John Harvey thinks back on how he got started writing for Quicksilver magazine 25 years ago and recalls how a 1957 Commuter saved his high school dating career. Plus Members Classics, Letters to the Editor and more.
