Jim,

That's great to hear that the Messerschmitts will be so well represented. Last year, there were about 8-10 micros in total, primarily Isettas. Others there were (from memory) 1 Messerschmitt, 1 Berkely Sports, 1 Austin Bantam, 1 Crosley. The numbers of micros have been slowly increasing over time, especially since they gave them their own class. Now that the schmitts have their own, hopefully that will really start to increase the numbers. If the weather is as good as last year, you're in for a fun weekend!

Steve.

Steve,
I have been there before, about six years ago my KR200 was in the Concours. This year will be the first time they will have a class dedicated to Messerschmitts. The TG and my 201 will be at the airport on Friday night for the Areo Expo and also on Saturday for the club day display. The Messerschmitts will be displayed with vintage aircraft. On Sunday we move the cars to the Concours field. It will be a busy weekend!
There will be at least seven Messerschmitts in the class. Two TG500's, one KR201, one KR175 and three KR200's. (At last count)
See you there!

No, not entering any cars. But I will keep an eye out for you.

I assume you've been there in the past. Good crowds. They seem to really love micros there - most people have no clue what they are, but are very interested. It's a really well done show.

Are you just bringing them to the Concours, or will you display them at the club show on Saturday?

I'm heading to the Hilton Head Concours in November (it's officially on!).

Steve
Have you entered a car in the Concours? I will have my KR201 in the "Messerschmitt Squadron" class, and I have just finished the restoration of a TG500 that will also be in that class..

I was also very saddened by the news. Jim has worker hard to pull all of this together for years. I'm still amazed with some of the old flyers and brochures that he's managed to locate for each magazine. Wishing a speedy recovery.

I'm heading to the Hilton Head Concours in November (it's officially on!). I wrote last year's article, so I'll take photos and put together another article and post it here. We can at least keep some news flowing until Jim gets back on his feet.

 :'( This is very sad news, I enjoyed seeing every issue. I greatly appreciate everything Jim has done. Hopefully he will see the light and realize not to let other peoples lives effect your own. Life is short and we are all on a mission, some for the good, some for the bad,unfortunately.

I received my last copy of Microcar News today. As I read the editorial I was saddened by the story and the reason for the suspended publishing of the voice of our hobby. I have enjoyed the publication from its inception and always look forward to finding it in my mail box.
I am sure that the membership along with my self wish Jim all the best in the future and thank him for
all he has done for the benifit of the Microcar hobby.
Jim- hopefully in the not to distant future you will find the time and energy to revive our favorite magazine.
Thank You!
