Default TURBO& HIGH TECH PERFORMANCE MAGAZINE is done

I got a post card today telling me as of feb 2009 that this will be my final issue. the balance of my issue will be served by modified magazine.

Im very very pissed off been a member of turbo magazine since the 1980's.
and custom compact car magazine is also done.

In the early 1990s sport compact magazine was really good, had alot of good tech information .

as time went on it got not so good .

superstreet always sucked.

SCC was my favorite, turbo probably next in line. So sad, but I guess most of this is because of people like me. I stopped my subscriptions in favor for the internet.

It's funny there was never any mention in turbo mag in past issues about this .
so so sad, Alot of my tech ideas came from turbo mag.
during the 80's it was a big help with my old but at the time new 2.6 turbo charged conquest TSI and my friends grand national GNX.

It's a shame to see Turbo go. I just pulled out a few back issused for old times sake. Volume 1. No. 1 and Volume 1 No .2.

Subaru and Turbo go way back. No. 2 has a road test of the 1985 XT coupe. All 111 hp of turbocharged thunder.
