    I've just been handed a whole stack of Wheel/Motor and various other car magazines from about 1995-2003 (about 100). Will slowly go through and scan those of interest = those with Frogs in it. Who shall I send them too ?

    Send the scans through & I can modify the images if need be.
    The more I do in one go the easier it is.

    I have some late 50's on mags, books and workshop manuals that have roadtests, articles etc.

    What type of scans would be best, OCR to word\PDF, Jpegs ?

    pdf is ok but most of the articles are jpegs compressed down a fair bit.
    You can have a go at the html if you want & I can upload.
    The stuff I do isn't fantastic, but because the image sizes are so big, nearly everyone reading them will have to scroll anyway.
