– THE LITTLE WONDER: The DKW Junior was certainly that, as it packed a punch greater than its 741cc motor would suggest. The example we look at here is a Cork-built example, and lives only metres from where it was assembled in 1962.
– AUSTIN FIRE ENGINE: This 1962 Austin FG was one of eight built by Dooley Bros. of Dublin for Cork County Council, and worked in a variety of Cork towns before being restored in Co. Cavan in recent times.
– THE MUNKTELL TRACTOR: Now part of the Volvo empire, BM (Bolinder Munktell) once made very fine tractors, such as this two-cylinder, two-stroke example.
– CROSSCUT SAW: This mighty machine, a Kerr reciprocating saw, was built in 1880 and has recently been taken on as a restoration project by the Traction Engine Club of Ulster.
– BARTLE BROWNE COLLECTION: With Fords, Nuffields and Fergusons among its line-up, this Meath-based collection is one of the more diverse we have featured to date and includes a rare MF TO35.
– FRENCH/ITALIAN SWAN SONG: John Byrne takes a look at the Peugeot 504 Coupe, a marriage of French engineering and Italian styling.
– FORD THAMES 400E: Bill Montgomery tells us about his stunning classic Ford pickup.
– SHOW REPORTS: Event reports from The Great Honda 50 Run, Dorset Steam Fair Pt. 2, Connacht V&V Car Club Autumn Run and Cortina Club of Ireland Autumn Run.
