    This thread will be dedicated to scan's (in PDF format) of the many articles published over the years as listed here: http://www.turbotransam.com/forum/i...st-updated-january-29th-2015.7040/#post-56853

    I encourage all of us to contribute BUT keep the same style of each post (use my first post below as a template) as this helps finding / searching for specific issues and articles.

    1. Individual post for each magazine - title of post should be the title of the magazine, issue etc. as per the list above

    2. Keep the same info as in the magazine list per link above

    3. Scan (PDF) should have the cover- and content page, and the pages of the article - Keep the size of the PDF down however make sure it's still readable when printed. Name the file per title in 1 above

    4. If there's an address label on the front cover please cover up the details for privacy before scanning.

    Do not post anything that is currently not on the list per link above; if magazine is missing then post in the above linked thread first to get it added to the list.

    Make sure the magazine not already been scanned and posted in this thread.

    If you need help or have issues send me a PM.

    Muscle Cars, November 1989 Volume VII Number 6

    p.52-54 GTO vs. GTA Shootout, Who's the Boss?
    1/4 mi [email protected] mph
    1965 389 Tri-Power GTO 4-speed vs. a TTA at Englishtown. The classic GTO was no match for the modern muscle of the TTA, which won every run fairly easily. Some good photos, although all in B&W, including a photo of Ed Kozinski's TTA vs. the test report TTA. Also see article under Individually Owned TTAs for more details on Ed's car.
    p.55 One Step Beyond!
    Veteran performance enthusiast Ed Kozinski takes his TTA to another level with a dose of late-model muscle. A few upgrades from ATR and a test pipe and Ed's car is running consistent 13.2s! Same issue previously mentioned under Other Major Articles.
    p.69 Factory Hot Rods You Can't Buy...Yet-Pontiac Firefox
    Mention of Jeff Beitzel and PAS as builders on TTA as well as Firefox. A few more prototype cars were mentioned including a 5-speed TTA. Same issue mentioned in Other Major Articles.
