    UPDATED June 9th, 2015

    UPDATE: Added 5 more magazines (couple of missing ones and a a few new ones I found out had TTA content); still a few missing so would be good with a few contributions here. PLEASE SEE IF YOU GOT SOME MAGAZINES NOT LISTED IN HERE

    Around 165 scanned magazines in total :thumbup:

    --------------------

    Finally got around to sort all my magazines and update Ron's (turbota6) "old" list he compiled years ago (Turbo Trans Am Publication List).

    I know many of us kept their own lists but thought it would be a good idea to keep an updated version in this thread and for anyone to contribute when new publications are found that are not on the list.

    Note: I have not included all the various newspaper articles that were published in 1988/1989 based on the GM press releases. And I have not included any books (might do this at some point when I have time); Ron's list do have some books listed.

    So if you spot an error in any of the listing OR if you have a magazine not listed then please post all the details in this thread and I'll update this PDF document accordingly; and hopefully you can provide a scan of that missing magazine and share with the rest of us.

    Any questions, suggestions, comments are all welcome !

    Enjoy !

    Ps. Magazines that been scanned you find the PDFs posted in this dedicated thread: http://www.turbotransam.com/forum/index.php?threads/tta-magazines-pdf-downloads.7047/

    NOTE: I will keep this thread clean and only keep related posts.

    Re: TTA Magazine List UP-To-DATE

    Funny that my list is still out there. Seems like such a long time ago when I see Revised 2/11/1997! I actually started the list around 1995 or so when I was searching for a TTA. Then when I found Russ Salerno's TTA web site and made the suggestion of publishing a list of literature. He said it was a great idea and when could I submit one! Open mouth, insert foot. I do that a lot. :bash:

    Jan, looks like you've been busy compiling this. Great job & cheers! :cheers:

    Re: TTA Magazine List UP-To-DATE

    great list Jan. i'm sure this took a little bit of time to gather up. i do have a few additions that might be of interest...
    the first is; Muscle Car Review, August 1987 mentions "possible install" of Turbo Buick V-6 for 1988 Trans Am???....
    and the second is from Pontiac Winners Circle May 1989 with two different stories about the 89 TTA's....
    i've included the covers of both in case anyone wants to try and hunt these down.....

    Re: TTA Magazine List UP-To-DATE

    This is brilliant; if we all share what's missing this way and I will update the list and highlight in green what changed from previous list / release to help keep track of new additions.

    On wich pages are the articles in Muscle Car Review and in the Pontiac Winners Circle publication?

    Jan,
    page 14 in MCR and page 5 in PWC which is just a 6 page news letter type of publication.....iirc, the MCR tid-bit just might be the first mention of ANYTHING Buick V-6/ Turbo T/A related????

    I really appreciate all the work you put into these TTA projects! Sure makes hunting and collecting this stuff a lot easier. It's great that you have included the content of the article.
    Thanks

    Thanks Kid, doing my best to share with you all !

    Stay tuned for loads of PDF versions of articles to be uploaded shortly; plan is to get all articles in that list scanned and posted on the forum but bit time consuming doing it as you can imagine.

    Jan, don't know if this one counts because its not a magazine-but remember the newspaper article that was done about the TTA reunion? I'm sure its on here somewhere in another thread-it was scanned. I noticed you had some things already about the TTA reunion but did not see that one.

    Aha well spotted. No its not part of this ... next project is all newspaper clippings to document and organize them all ... so would be part of that list.

    Like to get all the magazines scanned and sorted out first ... still got a couple of boxes full to scan but doing a focused effort to get it all done.

    Ps. 15 more PDF's up there now !

    I think you are right ... how could I have missed that one.

    Let me double check as I'm scanning what's left to scan so if I do have a copy it will be in one of the two boxes I'm working right now ...

    I'll let you know. Thanks for the heads up :thumbup:

    Re: TTA Magazine List - UPDATED February 20th, 2014

    Found it ... it's on there already under "Cars and Parts Magazine" ... was looking under Muscle Cars but that is a different magazine.

    Look for:
    Cars & Parts Magazine - Muscle Cars of the 60s/70s Fall 1989 Volume 2, Number 3
    p.28, 30, 89-90 part of article “F-bird celebrating 20 years” with 2 press photos



    Will scan that one next and add to the other thread.
