Mercury Muse: Stories & Humor
Introduction by~ “Righteous” Lee Scoopworthy, Editor in Charge
Welcome readers, I’m glad you’ve decided to peruse “the Muse”. Here you’ll find you can stick your nose in just about everybody else’s business without endangering your own proboscis and you might even come away with a chuckle or two. We’re “almost” like any other newspaper today with reporters out searching for stuff to sensationalize, exploit and poke fun at… however, I can guarantee you won’t need the dog to “fetch it” when you’re ready to read. We’ll be keeping a focus on our automotive agenda, (we all know what rich fodder that is) but humor and satire knows no boundaries, so sometimes you’ll see us stray beyond the fences for a good story and to bring the dog home. If you’ve got a “good one” that you think your fellow “motorheads” might enjoy, run her up the flag pole and see if you can get ol’ “Righteous Lee” (that’s me) to salute. Hey, it’s your duty to pass along gossip and hearsay, and it’s the Muse’s responsibility to print it. Keep a twinkle in your eye and ever watchful for the A-musing and Amazing. When you find it, don’t forget to pass it on… if enough people read it – someday it might be “gospel”. Click here to view all articles in Mercury Muse!

KruzIn Park: Automotive Events and Performance
Introduction by~ Willard “Willy” Wavemthrue, Park Ranger
For those of you who appreciate car shows, racing events and other high performance activities… I say, “How-do”. I’m Willy the Park Ranger and I’m waving you through our park entrance and telling you “straight as a scout’s guide” about all the activities we have going on in this area. It’s my job to keep you on the right path so you don’t miss a thing while you stroll the grounds of our community’s “commons” (our foot paths are guaranteed bear free). We try to always have something special going on here that we hope will suit the entire family; from beautiful car shows on the grass, exhibits in our convention center or perhaps you’ll even enjoy a race or two at KruzIn’s oval or drag strip facilities. At the center of the grounds is the Motorburg tent, you never can tell who you’ll run into under the “big top” – from celebrity automotive enthusiast to the “movers and shakers” in the street rod, classic, muscle and custom car arenas. Hey, we’re always looking for exciting new trends and talent, so you might even find yourself showcased here. Check out the events and stay on the fast track at KruzIn Park.

Historicar Society: Automotive Nostalgia and Classics
Introduction by~ Professor Weldon D. Tales, Curator
Hello visitors. As chairman of the Motorburg Historicar Society and the head curator of it’s automotive museum, allow me to take you on a tour of our city’s auto-athenaeum and collection of cool things past. As caretaker of motorbilia & memories, it’s my duty to preserve all things of automotive significance and to stir your recollections of those things remarkable and worthy of remembrance. I must warn you though, we make no distinction between the famous or infamous and the museum houses a repertoire of as many historical “misses” as it does items that were hitting on all cylinders at the time of occurrence. Our repository of remarkable recollections has a place reserved for all things of automotive interest and public contributions are always most welcome. Items concerning historical automotive design (both production and rod & custom) as well as memories of bygone days, memorable events and pioneers in automotive sports and construction are just some of the “gems” we’ll be sharing with our fellow “motorheads”. Remember, it’s important we don’t get lost in the past, but equally important that we also know… from where we came. Click here to view all articles in Historicar Society
LookOut Point: Into the Future
Introduction by~ Dr. Otto Forkaster, Stargazer
Greetings one and all and permit me to take you on a journey into tomorrow. Here we’ll be gazing upon the unlimited possibilities of the automobile, both for the immediate future and even beyond the limits of current technology. While we’ll be taking a look and reporting on the conceptual world of the major automotive manufacturers including the offerings of the limited production exotics, we’ll also be adding our opinion on possible trends and orbital directions of those cars ultimately destined for the “mass” market. Yes, we’ll also be doing our best to right the direction of those “bodies” that somehow seemed to have strayed from their proper course and need a little redirection. You know how it is sometimes when the space “suits” get in the way – it seems the best design intentions somehow get off course and they can’t seem to see the galaxies – for the stars. Well, we’ll be jumping in with our two-cents on those occasions and offering up some adjustments just to get things back in orbit. So get ready for the future and beyond… it’s an ever expanding automotive universe limited only by timidity and the depth of our imagination. There’s no “black holes” in Motorburg’s telescope.
