Current Issue of Quicksilver - Summer 2016
Update 8-8-16: Click on the Blog link above right to see video of the IMOA annual show held July 27-30 in Louisville, Ky. The video was taken by IMOA member Galynn Ferris.
The Summer 2016 issue of Quicksilver should have arrived to members by now. It’s a great issue with a story by auto historian Geoff Hacker on the Leo Lyons handbuilt Mercury custom he recently restored; new IMOA member and amateur photographer Harry Hartman with a story on how he uses unique backgrounds when taking pictures of his Mercury trucks; a photo collection of customized Mercurys using DeSoto grilles; IMOA President Jerry Robbin test drives the 2017 Ford Escape; automotive journalist and restorer John Gunnell provided a story on the recent passing of Krause Publications and Iola Old Car Show founder Chet Krause, a look at television variety host Ed Sullivan and Mercury endorsements and much more.
Orphan ads that were added after the Spring deadline have been incorporated into the Summer 2016 Classifieds section. They are already online, as is the Hartman story and Jerry’s drive report. More stories will be added online in the next week.
I also have a request for members: I would like to run a collection of member’s cars with a Christmas or Winter theme. Because of the Quicksilver magazine printing schedule, I will probably run them in the Winter 2017 issue, which comes out in January. The alternative would be to run them in the Fall issue, but October seems a bit early to be looking at winter pictures!
Pictures can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; or mailed to Todd Haefer, E1234 County Road V, Scandinavia, WI 54977. Thanks in advance!
