The October 2019 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is now on sale! Our cover story this month celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the one and only Ford Capri, as we take a look at a beautifully-restored 1969 1600GT and some later models from Capri Club Ireland. Our second car feature tells the story of one couple’s long history with their luxurious 1948 Austin Sheerline, and in a bonus third feature we delve into the restoration of a quirky little Saab 96. Our main tractor feature this month showcases the rare Singer Monarch and its three-wheeled OTA sibling, while our second tractor is an unusual Marshall 126 from 1989 that’s been in the same ownership for over three decades, and is quite possibly the only one of these tractors ever built. Our featured motorcycle this month is a nicely-restored Heinkel Tourist scooter from the last year of production in 1965, and our featured commercial vehicle is a Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 that’s been the subject of one of the most in-depth rebuilds we’ve ever seen. Event reports in this issue include the Terenure Classic & Vintage Motor Show, Picnic in the Park, IVETA National Rally, the Gordon Bennett Classic Run and more besides, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your October 2019 issue of Irish Vintage Scene today at any good newsagent, or order here online!
