When was the first issue of Toyota Trails published?

I was organizing my collection of TT last night (yeah, rocking time at FJ's!) and my collection goes back to March/April 1997...

probably all the way back to the beginning in 76. can't remember what year my first one is, want to say 89. it's just a xeroxed and stapled newsletter.

When did they move from the newsletter to magazine format?

In the 1990s. You can read about the history of Toyota Trails here on the TLCA website (http://tlca.org/tlca/history/part2.shtml).

Awesome resource Matt!

Thanks!

I love the Pig on the cover of the March/April 1996 issue.

I wanna say I have an issue that had a picture of the very first newsletter. it was a story on the history of TLCA. when/if I come across it, I'll post the issue date.

That doesn't look like a magazine to me -- it's still a newsletter.
