Summer get together Indiana Michigan Illinois Ohio

Post by C-Rock » Fri Mar 30, 2012 9:54 pm

So whats it going to take to get some kind of summer get together for some of the Ohio Michigan Indiana guys. Maybe we can get some venders like Mike from Merkur Depot and Jeff from Merkur Mid west to jump in and have some kind of swap meet. I know I got some stuff laying around. Would be good to see Tomi from North of the border who I sold my 89 to 10 or so years ago. I know I can bring 2 Xr's.

I would be down for this as well.

End of July too soon to coordinate for? I'm sure we could meet up at a metropark or something for a bbq/swap/whatever. Also, I know jeff doesn't like to travel too deep into Michigan...

You might want to look at the post date, I posted this 3 years ago. 5 hits in 3 years not bad.

Poking at this again.
If any of the people who posted here before are still owners.

What about the orphan show in Ypsilanti for 2017?

We are doing the Great Lakes Merkur Meet on Sunday august 27, 2017. This will be held In Grand Ledge Michigan at Fitzgerald Park. This is being done in conjunction with the Blue Oval Blast all Ford and Mustang car show. For people traveling a bit of a distance we are organizing activities on Saturday August 26th. We're either going to go to the Metro Cruise in Grand Rapids Michigan. There will be thousands of cars thousands of people hanging out at a car cruise. Or we will go to the all European car show at Frankenmuth Michigan. We would love to see a lot of cars come this event. We will have our own Merkur Awards, as well as the Merkurs will be eligible for the Ford car show awards as well.

Message me by text, phone call or email for more info. How to see you all there.
