Very windy at times yesterday. The white tent in the background nearly took to the air.
My stuff doesn't budge.

Re: MCA Flag Needs to Fly!

Of course it rained... hard. But there was a bright side. Only about 65 cars showed up at a show where they gave awards to the top 50. About 15 of those cars belonged to the homies in my local club. When it's "participant judging" everyone votes for their homies. This was by far the highest homie pe...

Thanks for your support. You're a true Merkur Maniac!
Thanks Bob!
Megapole #3 flag attachments are complete... MCA Flag will make it's debut at a small cruise in tonight.
There are much bigger events on Saturday. Hopefully it doesn't rain again!

Screenshot 2019-05-12 at 4.43.28 PM.png And we are back! :headbang Man, it was cold! About 50 degrees with a 20 mph wind. But we are a hardy bunch. 46 cars showed up in despite the weather. This is actually my 2nd time out but the first with photos. Last week it was nice weather in the 70's. Next w...

Those must be some flag poles...........
It's probably the biggest, tallest one that's ever been put into a wheel stand, which had to be custom built.
I got a few bucks wrapped up in my show display, but it's an impossible to miss attention grabber.

My appraiser found more than one example of a Merkur XR4Ti selling for more than $15K.
Someone should tell Hagerty.
They're still claiming that a #1 Concours XR is a $6100 car.

I'm sure Mike @ Merkur Depot has them too.

These guys have the stuff you need.
Thanks - can you tag Jeff? The link shows a tank, but it won’t put it in the cart and let me buy.
I’m ready.
Shoot him an email... blugg@msn.com

Re: Hagarty Merkur Article published

You might want to get your car appraised. I had mine insured for $10k and then had it appraised, came back at over $20k. Hagerty got a call right after that to up my coverage and they got a copy of the appraisal. To my knowledge, no stock XR has ever sold for even $15K. It would be good news if tha...

Re: New Here- Fuel tank/filler issue?

I had my mechanic sort mine last year after it overheated after being in storage. I simply gave him the car, told him to go through it and "fix it". Interestingly enough, I did not end up buying a single part... it was just a very thorough servicing. Made sure everything was tight, clean and sealed,...
