LATEST ISSUE - 96 May 2014 ON SALE NOW

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 16.37.00The May 2014 edition of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 96) is on sale now, and as usual is packed with a wide variety of interesting features. On the cover this month is a rare Irish example of one of the best classic sports saloons around; Hugh Doyle was offered this 1958 Riley One-Point-Five as a rough ex-competition car that had been lying in storage for over a decade, and has carried out a fantastic restoration. Moving further into the magazine we take a look at a lovely Irish-assembled 1953 VW Beetle, as well as a Ford Zodiac hearse, of all things, which has been in the same undertaking family since it was only three years old. Our tractor features this month focus on two quite different, but equally interesting, machines. Our main feature looks at a David Brown 885 from 1971, which isn’t the usual red and white, but a loud lime green/yellow as it worked all its life at Dublin Airport. Our other tractor feature tells the story of a stunning Massey Ferguson 35X that’s been in the ownership of the same Co. Limerick family since it was brand new. Motorcycle enthusiasts will no doubt feel some nostalgia when they read about our feature on a pair of NSU Quickly mopeds, which were highly popular in Ireland in their day but a rare sight at classic shows now, while our commercial feature this month looks at a beautifully-restored Volvo F88 290 truck, which again has a lovely family story behind it. With event reports including the Jumpstart VW Show in Co. Tipperary and a look back at last year’s Irish Vintage Scene Tractor-Build Challenge, plus all of our usual attractions like Laid to Rust, Your Letters, News & Events and lots, lots more, you won’t want to miss the May 2014 issue of Irish Vintage Scene; get yours today!
