Hey guys...as most of you know I sold my turbocoupe a little over 6 months ago to try my hand at building up an 85 Toyota Corolla GTS aka AE86 for road racing. The corolla project is still in the works but I could not stand being without a turboford. I made great efforts to find another TC but I ended up being given a nice 1988 Merkur XR4Ti. However, I dont consider myself the typical merkur owner. I just dont think I fall into that mold. I was just wondering "for those of you that know me" If I was to make it to carlisle this year would I still be embraced by my turbocoupe brethren? I really miss everyone like Dan, Pete, Nate and Sam....to many to list really! I would more than likely show my car over at the merkur section but I think I would rather spend most of my time shooting the breeze over at the NATO tent [Image: smile.gif]

what do you guys think?!?! [Image: smile.gif]

Just wanted to see what you guys think? I am looking at leaving my current job in the parts dept of a Toyota dealership so I dont know how badly this is going to set me getting the merkur ready to take the trip to PA, but we shall see.

Hey, use our NATO pre-registration form to register, save yourself some money on registration, and we will embrace you even more.........lol. That way, when you come to visit us, you'll have a nice tent to sit under. We accept all types of Ford vehicles during pre-registration (even ones that don't exist sometimes).
