Hi all,

Some of you may have seen that the 2020 International Mercury Owners Association national meet will be in Colorado, June 24-28th.

The show is in the Denver metro area, about two hours from where I live.

More information is here: http://www.mercuryclub.com/

If there is sufficient interest perhaps we can have an early summer gathering out here?

I know there are other Capri owners out this way, perhaps if some of them are here...or in the Mercury club we can figure some sort of sideshow (er...)?

Thoughts?

Wow, I'd like to make that. Was just through there on I70 last year.

Well, that's one...

...anyone else at least half-interested?

I might have to run up some sort of windshield wiper flyer for the cars I see out here, here and there...

In any event, we're looking at being there. I might even enter my little project...

I am interested, trying to save up a few hundred to buy a couple parts cars near me. If I can do that I can probably get my car running good enough to go that way if I can fit in my schedule.

I would love that, but that is a mighty long run from the east coast of NC!  I hope you can round up some folks out there to participate.  Good luck with the event and post some pictures. If your not on any of the facebook groups, please join.  There is more activity, but also some scavengers that want the xr2 drivetrains.

John, if you can get yours going, I'll make a hole in my schedule and go with you.  I70 west of there is beautiful, I'd love to run back up there again.  Redsteve, the problem is for some reason, Capri owners don't seem to want to get out and gather. Locally there is an annual meet of Festivas, who love to transplant our engines and come from as far away as Arizona and California, that regularly have over 50 attendees.  Here on the east coast if you can get a dozen cars, you've done well.

Good luck with it, Jack Byrd

Jack...I will make one of these gatherings yet, but the dates for this one conflicts with family vacation this year.

Hi all,

In the event you haven't seen the notice, the Mercury Club cancelled its meet in Denver for this month.

The club is expecting to have the meet in Denver next year, so think about going next: www.mercuryclub.com.

A drive across country with the top down! Ecstasy!

Cheers all,

Steve
