I bought out the collection of an elderly gentleman that worked at the Peterborough Plant for OMC back in the day.
In his collections, was a box of negatives, showing athlete runner Ben Johnson posing with different outboards. Must have been a promotional thing. After searching the old interweb though, cannot seem to find anything regarding this? Anyone remember seeing any advertising like this?
I would post a picture of what I have , but have never had one developed. I will, and will post once I do.

I remember the ads well. They were in alot of the weekend magazines that the newspapers put out at the time.As I recall they were put out just prior to the Olympics and quickly dropped after the steroid scandal.
