21. Gran Turismo (don't know date) - RHD Murena 2.2 Turbo.

I have a copy of this magazine.  This car is for sale at the moment - it does not have a turbo on it though as it was sensibly removed many years ago.  The RHD conversion used a steering box not a rack!!

I have started to send these reviews to Lennart Sorth (not sure if he'll thank me due to the size) and I think he will post them on his site so everyone can look copy at their own free will.

on the contrary.
THANK YOU - THANK YOU  - THANK YOU :-)

I have plenty of space on my mailserver (which is also the server where MatraSport runs) - and it is connected using 100Mbit, so just go ahead and make my day.

I will process the files to a good quality/filesize compromise and put them in the vault.

ahh - that reminds me of that wonderful Hélène Mahieu .... erhm I mean *Renault* commercial that ran in the UK some 10 years back Smiley - "just 4 centimeters of extra Va Va Voom" or however it went :-)

Anywayup, size *does* matter, all have their preferences and I have thus made them smaller. :-)
I chose 100 pixels vertical and 90% jpeg, plus some filtering:

I'll add the files as they arrive.  Lewisman, just go ahead, I'll try to keep up :-)

I'm going to see if I have I OCR software somewhere  at home, could be fun to make the reviews into a document, so it could be translated. I think I'm not the only one here that don't speak english, french and german fluidly....

I have a copy of this magazine.

And Roy has kindly sent it to me - with an amendment written by him in 1984:

Sorry for the VERY long wait, Ive now scanned all the matra road tests and offer them to all who want them. These are not small files so beware. Let me know if anyone wants to host them..

PS I'd still like any of the missing ones from my list!

Practical Classics has just acquired a Murena 1.6.  It is an import that has not yet been UK registered.  Watch Staff Car Sagas for more information.
