I came across this cut-away view of a 1988 Turbo Coupe in a 1987 Motor Trend special issue. The original image was a 2 page image with a bad crease and staples in the middle and other marks on it. After about 2 hours with Photoshop, I got it looking fairly nice. The link is below, I scanned it at the highest resolution I could. You should be able to download the full size file if you want to make a print (about 12 Mb). It should make a reasonable print up to about 11X16.

P.S., If you click the "previous" button on the album page when you open the link, you can see some more photos from TC magazine articles I scanned and uploaded if your interested.

nice. photobucket will print it and mail it to you cheap. my 11x16 is on its way.

thanks for the hard work.

do you think you could do the same with the "applied logic and where it can take you" ad for the thunderbird turbo? its of a blue bird like mine...i have a nice one framed, but the crease bothers me.

While I did upload the full size file to my Photobucket album, it looks like the file was re-sized to about 380Kb, at least the one that you can get to and download. If anyone wants the full file to make a print, PM me your email address and I'll send it to you. Your IP must support email attachments of at least 12Mb for it to work.

I hope Photobucket makes your print from the full file, I don't know if a 11X16 from a 380Kb file will come out looking very good. Can you tell me where the ad appeared? Maybe I can find it in the pile of old car magazines I just got.

It was just about the center of the image, where the page was folded and stapled to the magazine. It was a vertical line dead centered on the rear view mirror mount lug in the windshield.
