Does anyone have any of the old Road and Track, Motor Trend or Car and Driver road tests of the GS? I would love to read those, but they are impossible to find. Anyone have any scanned images of the reviews?

I suggest going to the periodicals section of your local library.

Go to the Library and fill out the forms for:

Road & Track – January 93 pages 68-72
Road & Track – February 95 pages 114-117
Motor Trend – June 93 pages 56-68
and the best: Motor Trend – May 92 pages 76-81 (SC300 vs Legend)

I have reviews from numerous magazines. One comparing G1 vs G2, Diamante vs G2, G2 vs a whole bunch of other cars in it's class, 91 Coupe 5speed review, and a couple outhers including the Consumer Reports one that said you would be happier with a 1991 Ford Touras over a Legend... BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA :rolleyes:

Why pay for something when you can get it for free at the local library? Motor Trend and Car & Driver are both major publications. If the periodicals section doesn't have them in an anthology or archive, they're sure to have it on microfiche. If the main branch of the Oakland Library is willing to buy the anthologies, I'm sure a library near you will have them as well. I'd rather spend ten minutes at the library than $10-15 for a reprint. Just can't justify spending that kinda money if all you want is to read the article.

Plus, the anthologies will have an index issue. So, you can look up every article ever put in print by that particular publication.

But hey, its your money.

That was, of course, my first choice. The only problem is is that the Seattle Public Library main branch has been torn down to build a new one. The library has a temp spot downtown, but none of the old periodicals. I will have to check some libraries in some of the suburbs...

Leo = YES!!!!!!! Thanks!!! I would really like some full size color copies. I will pay for it. Take it to Kinko's.

All,
I went to the library today. It closed at 6! This is the main library for Chattanooga. I still don't get this town. Only one wal*mart and no Starbucks!!!!!! Anyway, I am going to go during the day tomorrow. I should have my scanner up this week, so I will post them all!
Later!

Alright, today I went to the Library. I got 3 of the 4 magazine articles. Unfortunatelly all I could get were B/W copies. I am going to contact the companies and request the actual mags. I will post them up once I get my scanner working.
Later!
Lee
