Looking for room on Saturday night...

Anyone have room for a roommate Saturday night at the Radisson? It will be just me (my folks are taking my son hone with them on Saturday evening), and I will be happy to put like $50 towards the room. I'm even cool sleeping on the floor if there is no second bed...I'll bring something to lay on. I ...

Re: Rest In peace Jim Wirt

My gosh, I haven't been on here in awhile and this is the first I've heard of this. Such sad news. Jim truly is a legend among the Merkur community. May he rest in peace, and may God be with his family.

Re: Sunroof Seal

If you have any water leaking into the car from the sunroof, you may very well have clogged drains. The drains on the Scorpio are notorious for this. Two things you can do...first, open the hatch and look for the rubber drains near the roof. There will be one on each side. As you will see, the openi...

Re: Young merkur enthusiasts?

I got my first Merkur when I was 15...almost 15 years ago at this point! December 2, 1998 to be exact. It was a Strato Silver Metallic 1989 Scorpio that I owned for just shy of 14 years. Loved that car and I really miss it sometimes. Over the years I've had a total of 5 Merkurs, 4 of them Scorpios, ...

Mono White 88 or 89 XR in Scranton, PA?

I've been contacted by a few folks who have spotted a nice mono white single wing XR in the Scranton, PA, area (which is only a few miles from where I live). I'm not sure who the car belongs to, but was hoping someone might know. It was spotted driving northbound on I-81 near the 81/84/6 interchange...

Thanks To The MCA!

As always, I want to take a moment and thank the MCA for all they continue to do, and for putting together yet another great Merkurs at Carlisle event! My son and I had an absolute blast, and so did my folks, who continue to attend every despite not owning a Merkur of their own. Bravo MCA!

Re: Unleash Your MCA Poncho...

I did not take my Merkur to Carlisle as I was only available on Saturday. It was nice to see and talk to some of the folks that helped me with parts here. I was disappointed in that I was not able to find any parts in the vendor area but if I wanted easy, I would have a 66 Mustang! :mrgreen: Hope t...

Re: Unleash Your MCA Poncho...

I had a 1992 Ford Tempo GLS Sedan with the Vulcan 3.0 V6 and an automatic (was my mom's car before I took it over, hence the auto). The thing handled like crap, but moved quite good even with the auto and sounded fantastic. It didn't look like a normal Tempo thanks to the rather aggressive bodykit, ...

Re: Appalachian Brewing Company on Friday Night

Reservations are officially made for 6:15! We'll plan to meet in the parking lot at the Radisson...maybe we can carpool so we won't take up all their parking at ABC.

Re: Official Road Report Thread

To those traveling south on I-81 through PA...

At mile 137 the highway is down to one lane in both directions, and there is a crossover to the northbound lane.
