I'm very sorry to hear this. It was certainly one of the cars I wanted to see.

But I completely understand your point of view.

Mike:

Sorry to hear. We are in the same boat this year. So reset our countdown clocks to 375 days  23.00.

Mike
I'm really sorry to see that the Merk won't be on the salt for Speedweek. 
If it were not for some of these challenges, everyone would be doing it.
Her first return to the salt will be very special for you, and the more prepared you are the better time you and the car will have.

Be sure, that while I haven't been talking much, I am closely following all your exploits with my favorite weird car.
You are doing GREAT, and will end up going very fast with "HER"

Glenys always called her "Pandora"
Have fun on the salt.

Greetings Mike
Not going to be on the salt this year.
I'm finally beginning to enjoy being in the shop working on the liner, and am finally making a little progress.  My son Jim still kicks my Acura every day, but life is better.
I fully expect to be on the salt next year.  Don't know which event, but my goal is testing at ECTA Wilmington early next spring.
All my best on finishing up the Merk. 
You know I'll be watching.

"Jesus, girls, and Marcus Mariota."

If the vote isn't (nearly) unanimous, sell it to a scrap dealer and disband your organization (with minor sympathy to my friend in Wisconsin).

GO DUCKS!

The only thing in College Football I hate more than Ohio State is ANY SEC team.

I will be cheering on the Buckeyes in the Sugar Bowl, but I fully expect the Ducks to crush Florida State, and Mike and I will be celebrating a Ducks Championship on the 12th.

Last year at the PRI show, a reception was held in the concession area of Lucas Stadium in Indianapolis.  If the opportunity is available again this year, I intend to pay reverent homage to a very good Big 10 team that was buried there this weekend.

The perception of many West Coast fans that there is an extreme East Coast bias in the voting for the Heisman Trophy.

Melvin Gordon - and the Heisman Trophy.

http://www.oregonlive.com/collegefootball/index.ssf/2014/12/ohio_state_shuts_down_heisman.html

He had 5 200+ yard games this year, including a whopping 408 against Nebraska.  

I saw him at Iowa City against the Hawkeyes.

He's bona fide, and likely to have a good pro career, but I doubt he's still in the running for the Heisman after yesterday's debacle.

Mike, I am assuming I'm your friend in Wisconsin . . .  cheers
