cover 99 smallThe August 2014 edition of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 99) is on sale now, and as usual is packed with a wide variety of interesting features. On the cover this month is a classic that will bring back fond memories for a great many people; the Hillman Imp was a popular family car in Ireland during the sixties and seventies, and sure enough the owner of this example remembers well the blue Imp that his dad bought in Dublin in 1972. Our second car feature looks at some very unusual variants of the iconic ‘sit-up-and-beg’ Ford Anglia; this soft-top tourer and roadster pickup originally hail from Australia, and are two models that we never saw on European shores. They’re now both in the stewardship of a well-known sidevalve Ford collector in Co. Cavan, and so are in the best of hands.

Our main tractor feature this month is the fantastic tale of one man’s fifty-year admiration of his neighbour’s Allis-Chalmers WC, which has always been in the same West Cork parish from new. He finally got his hands on his dream tractor last August, and restored it in just six months despite meeting some serious hurdles with the engine. We also feature a lovely pair of classic David Brown tractors, namely a 995 and a 1210, which are fine specimens from a now sadly-defunct manufacturer.
