    Lightbulb Carlisle Ford Nationals can feature the Mercury Marauder in 2024!

    We can make it happen!

    I sent the an email to the Carlisle Ford Nationals, asking if the Mercury Marauder could be featured at The Carlisle Ford Nationals in 2023. It made sense to me: The 40th anniversary of the 1963 Marauder and the 20th Anniversary of the 2003 Marauder.

    Ken Appel answered and said "....Unfortunately no one from either of the Marauder Groups reached out to get something going when we were planning the 2023 anniversaries in the last year....That said, we went with the ones that had backing from the clubs as its hard to go out on a limb and do it yourself with no support"

    What if Mercury Marauder.net and the other Marauder group Ken mentioned petition Carlisle to celebrate the Mercury Marauder in 2024? Think about it, our cars get the national recognition they deserve and we'd get a lot more Marauders showing up to celebrate!

    I'd like to hear from the Carlisle regulars in our group to see what they think of this idea.

    A few of us tried to get Carlisle to do a feature a few years back, at the time they wanted a past or present Ford employee to come out for the feature. We tried to get Steve Babcock to come but it wasn't in the cards so to speak.

    I don't know what the requirements are currently, but I wager it still isn't as easy as just asking "Hey can you park us right up front and give us a fancy tent?"


    A lot of the former Carlisle regulars have also bailed over the years, I'd be afraid of what kinds of attendance numbers we could even pull.
