I can sign the copies that my Living the Legend reports were in, they'll fetch a fortune. Very Happy

Funnily enough, I was reading through some old copies the other day... it was a great mag in the early days.

Yeah , agree in the early days it was ....now it’s only good if you want to read about your ‘Neunelfer’ in every 2nd paragraph .....
I’m afraid that was the final straw for me .....I don’t know why but it irritates me .....

I check it out in shops now and again to see if it’s any different , but no ! There it is .....’Neunelfer,,,’
I stopped buying it when the present editorial team took over ......and let’s face it they are all ‘much and such’ really.....

One little gem I noted..... when the news broke about there being a new iteration of 911 coming out ..the ‘R’ .....there was a rumour in the Porsche world that the 918 and ‘R’ were to be allowed to be sneak previewed by press journos ‘ONLY’ if they personally owned and ran a Porsche ....!,,

Viz-a-viz.......the reason some of them bought their own PDQ.......!

It’s worth about £5 per Mag. I suggest sticking them on eBay. I threw some of mine away about a year or so ago only to find out I wanted them again. I bought them roughly £5-£7 with postage.

Actually No1 is VERY hard to get in actual magazine format
early ones are only available in PDF now

There are lots for sale at that price but they really don't often sell, if you want to get rid of them, a pound or two each is more realistic.

Some issues were more interesting than others- for example the 'profiles' of the individual models were detailed and very well researched and would be interesting to any owners.

Also some nice articles on 2.7 RS and other specials. The features on contemporary cars were also fun, for example reading about the 996 Turbo S and 997.1 in context as a new car.

But most also featured yet another american tuned 996tt which got a bit tedious.

@Fuchs- I would be interested in copies which contain features on the 996 4S. I stopped getting it in '08.

Just freed up about 15ft of bookshelf space by sending many years worth of F1 and Porsche related magazines to recycling. Sadly not much value to them and they are flipping heavy in bulk!

I had tons of old car magazines, and what I used to do is to list each one on ebay. Id list what cars / articles were featured etc and have a buy-it-now of about £3.49 or something. As they are a magazine you can buy the a4 sized binbag type posting bags in bulk of ebay and use them to post, so packaging cost hardly anything. I used to print my own postage labels off so all I had to do was to dump the magazines in a post box on the way to work.

I sold hundreds and made some nice pocket money, but it depends if you can be bothered as it is quite a time consuming process. I used to try and do a few each morning before work. Once you have entered all the details you just leave the listing on until its sold.

It does make them more attractive to buyers though, if they are only interested in certain articles or cars etc, rather than having to buy them in bulk.
