Great job Mercules! Definitely white paper material. We all should be doing things like this to preserve as much Mercury history as possible. The clock never stops turning as time marches on. The are less people here today than yesterday, those that lived thru Mercury's history.  They are gone and the unrecorded secrets have gone with them.

Thanks, I agree! I'll be posting more as I get to them.

1 more set to satisfy the "Mercoholics". The guy in the sunglasses in the first post is Robert Webber I consider his look as the quintessential 60's executive type.

Thanks, I haven't been able to help with any tech problems (no one has a problem I can relate to) so this is my contribution.

Let's do a 180 like Merc did in the 70's and think (ugh) winter. I know a guy who owns a Sno-Twister! I know all about the early ones being tall and heavy but all of the snowmobile companies made them like that in the 60's!

nice job Murray
I will get these ads and the ones we already have posted in the history section all together and into our online PDF viewer and posted  in the whitepapers

if anyone else has any to add, this would be a good time and place to contribute what advertisements you have to our sites attempt in preservation of all that is Vintage Mercury  :mrgreen:

Really great stuff. Thanks!

Also neat to see some of the cool boats that were available in the 1950's - 1970's.
