Emily,

Good to meet you at the Anglin's.... FYI, there is a Ford show at National Trail Raceway in Aug/Sept. More and more Merkurs are turning out for the event. That's practically in your back yard, being just East of Columbus, OH.

Re: gas mileage. Combo: Stock engine with Tbird SC intercooler, big VAM and LA3. T5 and auto rear. Fresh brakes and good alignment. I almost thought I'd missed a fuel receipt, but all are accounted for. I had similar results in '99 when I tracked my mileage. Normally, I get 23mpg for my 75/25 highwa...

Good to see you too, Ed. After you and John B left me installing my AF Meter, I drove my 425 mile trip back to OH. I got 32 mpg running rich. Do the math, but I got home in 6 hours. Made one pee/fuel stop.

Award categories

There should be a catagory for most abused Merkur. Or, fast-n-ugly. Or, just plain ugly. And, we ain't talkin about the driver.

Follow a REAL leader

Oh, and this bit of advice. Follow someone home that knows where he/she is going... unlike me last year. Don't follow me. You'll end up in a jam like this: http://images.team-v.net/auto/CarlisleAllFords/carlisle2k4/DSC01617.JPG http://images.team-v.net/auto/CarlisleAllFords/carlisle2k4/DSC01618.JPG ...

CB required

I forgot my CB last year. I almost got lost on the way to Carlisle. We had to make a little detour because of an accident or something. Two of us got separated by traffic lights. We missed the entrance to the interstate and had to turn around. Once we hit the interstate, we were doing over 100mph to...

Sold Out!

Called for reservations, being the King of Procrastination... They're sold out!

Just an FYI. I'm going to keep trying, but I might need to share a room with someone.
