Current Issue of Quicksilver - Spring 2013
The Spring 2013 issue of Quicksilver has been shipped and members will get a pleasant surprise – 16 more color pages! The majority of the magazine is now in color, a far cry from its humble beginnings when it was basically black and white xeroxed pages!
The magazine contains more information on the 2013 annual International Mercury Owners’ Association car meet, which will be held Sept. 27-29 in Springfield, Ill., in conjunction with the Route 66 Mother Road Festival. The IMOA event will include a visit to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, which is profiled in this issue.
Registration forms for the meet are also in the new issue and also on this Web site under the Events link. News on the annual show is also on that Web page.
Other stories this issue include a look at Mercury entries in NASCAR’s convertible division during the 1950s, IMOA President Jerry Robbin test drives the 2013 Lincoln MKZ and long-time auto journalist John Gunnell writes about the changes to the auto collection of the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
John Harvey examines the model car industry, while “The Return of the Curse of the Beast” is Part 2 of Ed Zukusky’s trials and tribulations with his first X-100 Marauder. It’s a chapter from his book, “Roger Made Me Do It,” which is available from Amazon.com. There’s even a look at the 1958 Park Lane convertible.
It doesn’t end there, as there are also tons of Members’ Classics photos, Classifieds and more.
Some of these stories are in the Events or Blog section, so feel free to browse the site and check out the online versions.
Online Classifieds are updated and any ads received since the winter are consolidated into the Spring 2013 Classifieds area. Ads received since the Spring issue went to print are also in that section.
