I know most of you will have seen these in my blog, but I thought I would post up a separate thread that anyone else can add press clipings too as well.

Tim,

have you got the Trevor Alder compiled Transport source book? If so I have this as well (as well as many, many issues of Autocar/Motor/What Car?/Car from that era with road tests in). I can start scanning them in if this helps?

Here's one I did earlier:

Nice scans I like looking at the old press coverage 8)
I have this book which is about 5mm thick but I am still working on splitting it "safely" for scanning.

I have a few 16v articles in magazines I wil be scanning over the next few weeks so will add them if they are ones not already shown.

Cheers

That's the one!

I'll leave that to you then, and I'll dig out all the other mags I've got.

I can see an updated BX roadtest book coming along...

Excellent Tim be interesting to see the two side by side and see what the differences are.

Not sure when I wil "attack" that book Matt apart from the large amount of scans I am still worried about splitting it and making a hash of it.

Luke,

I don't mind scanning it in if you want, because mine has already been split, and more pages added from other mags, then re-bound... so it should okay to scan without taking it apart, or I can take it apart, then re-assemble it at a later date :)

In the future I will be looking to print everything out that I don't have and making a much more up to date road test book. Could probably do a few if anyone's interested?

Matt
