XM Press kit???

Post by motorgnome » Sat Oct 13, 2018 6:02 am

G'day guys! I just received delivery of some XM memorabilia that I bought on Ebay, namely a huge information kit.

This will probably be old news to you guys, sooooo.... can you tell me who it was given to at release?? The press??

Cheers!..Jason

That is a good find Jason and I am also fortunate to own copies of the various press kit documents shown, although I have never seen the slides, which could be quite rare. Please could you confirm what the slides actually show and I assume that material was for informal presentations to small groups! With regards, Matthew T.

Several Kodak Carousel projectors here, eager to be pressed into action!
If stuck, a bright diffuse light behind each slide, and a close-up with a camera would enable posts.
Wonder if they show anything not seen in previous literature/presentations?

G'day guys!
I just had a look at the slides. They don't show anything remarkable, just the XM from various angles, inside etc. Imagine you are showing a small group of salesman, the "New up coming car"...Then you'll get an idea. They look beautiful quality & are dated from the 23.1.1989 to 22.8.1989.
I will go to the local camera shop when I get some time & get them converted to JPEG files so they can be shared here. There is so much information in the package , I am just loving it.. It gives me a peek into the past.

Be aware that some of those copies are from Europe.
For those check the language as there were editions in other European languages.
