Current Issue of Quicksilver - Spring 2017
Update 4-15-17: The Spring 2017 issue of Quicksilver has been mailed out from the printer and should be arriving to members.
It has an update on the IMOA annual show that will be held Sept. 7-9 in Sheboygan, Wis., 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. An updated preview story, focusing on the history of Road America, is in the Events section. Registration forms for the 2017 show are here: imoa-2017-show-registration-forms
The new issue also features IMOA member Roy Lange writing about how to do a period-correct fix for windshield wipers. What many people don’t know is that car companies issued technical updates to fix initial mechanical problems that were discovered, so that although they might change how the original car was sold, they are still technically original.
Also in the Spring issue is a story on the first production Cougar appearing at the Carlisle Ford Nationals in June; Mercury results from the 2017 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, including a 1957 Turnpike Cruiser convertible Indy 500 pace car that sold for $110,000; author and IMOA member Ed Zukusky decodes “For Sale” terms; John Harvey recalls when air conditioning was not a common car option; plus Members Classics, Letters to the Editor and more.
Some of these stories are already in the Blog section if you don’t want to wait for the magazine.
Classified ads that were added to the Web site after the Winter 2017 magazine deadline have been incorporated into the Spring 2017 Classifieds section. The complete Spring ads are already online.
