I thought the nametags were a great idea from last year. For the most part name tags are hated, but they are good for an internet community. This way we can put a face with a Bill Cotos, Biff Curtis or a Jim Orlinski name. :roll: So, the nametags should have our name, city and forum user name, corre...

Note from my wife: "I hate you people! How can a car show be the highlight of your year?"

I know that is what she is thinking. :idea: Maybe if they had a shoe store on the Carlisle premises... :roll:

Geeked for Carlisle

Anyone out there not yet decided on going to Carlisle, listen to this. My plans for travel this year is South Carolina in May, Hawaii in September, and the Bahamas in December. I am more excited about the Carlisle trip than any other of these trips. This will be my 4th consecutive year to Carlisle. ...

Ed, Carlisle Promotions had the notice on their website. It is now under "what's new" under the All-Ford Nationals page. If you have one of the Merkurs that fit this category, and have not yet applied, you're too late. They said they already have the display filled. I know Dennis Edwards' 86 XR coul...

Wonders never stop happening. I received an email from my tag on an eBaY auction. It was from a double XR owner from far-flug Carlisle PA. Apparently he had know idea about the show :? .

Geez that last thread was...uh... I joined the MCA in about April 2001. I have been to Carlisle in '01, '02, '03, and will be there this year. Although I am not new to Merkurs, I am new to the MCA. I have, since the beginning, heard the "stories" about a rift between Rapido and MCA. I don't pay any ...

Camping in an XR is great until you try to get out of the back. You fold the rear seats down and the front seats forward. When the seats are folded foward the seat back blocks the handle. As you try to pull the seat out of the way, you lose your balance and fall back and put your head through the ba...

Ambassador for Carlisle

I have found a simple way to spread the "joy" of Merkurs at Carlisle. On eBaY, whenever I list any Merkur parts, I end the item description with a note on the upcoming event. It says to contact me for more info. I then send them addresses for www.merkurclub.com and www.carsatcarlisle.com. I get at l...

I had just called back and they had a smoking room just cancel. I prayed to the Merkur god. That leaves the rest of us out. Can we find a neighboring hotel to get a block of rooms?

HELP! I just called for reservations for my room and they are sold out! They said we had only 65 rooms blocked off. Is this true? Do we need to go back to the Raddison in Camp Hill?

Original Merkurs needed at Carlisle

This year at Carlisle they are going to have a special display for all-original unrestored Fords. Go to www.carsatcarlisle.com for the info. Perhaps Lynn Krauses' 85 XR will be displayed. Maybe Dennis Edwards' 86 XR also. Anyone else out there have a nice unrestored Merkur?

The Carlisle Bug is bitting earlier every year! :D
