Hi guys, Iíve been bored over the xmas period and have been tidying all my Matra bits and bobs, I have catalogued all the bills for my car for the last 20 years, organised all the MEC magazines, and sorted through the many reviews, press articles, etc that Iíve got from the early 80's. Iím wondering if anyone has any Murena reviews that I donít, if so Iíd be willing to trade. I'll put a list below of all the ones I have and if anyone could add any missing one that would be great.

Thats a great idea but im not sure if the magazines would aprove, not that i can see why (I think some dont even exist anymore). I do object to people charging top prices for these mags on ebay and the like. so if your interested then send me your email and i'll forward them on. Thanks for the interest and if anyone does have a copy of the reviews i dont have let me know.. Thanks guys, David

In trying to send these things out ive realised my scanner is saving each page to a Jpeg of 2 to 3 meg, what the best easy way of making these smaller?

A copy of that would be cool, just dont do what i did and keep the resolution down or the files will be huge! If you need any of  mine let me know.

Bart: WOOOOW! Very nice pictures. But why they compared 1,6 vs. 2,3 vs 2,0 I mean, why they didn't use Murena 2,2 Huh

His comments about the Rancho are pretty nasty.  He obviously never drove one Huh

As usual Matra were well ahead of their time.
