Issue 100 (Sept 2014)
The September 2014 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is on sale now, and in case you haven’t noticed it yet, it’s something of a milestone as it’s our 100th issue! That’s right; it’s been 100 months since the first issue of Irish Vintage Scene hit the shelves in June of 2006, and we’re proud to say that we’ve come a long way since then. To celebrate, we have a rather special magazine for you this month boasting a gatefold cover and some feature vehicles linked to people in the public eye, including a Mercedes restoration project belonging to actress Clelia Murphy (Niamh Cassidy from TV’s Fair City), a Ford Cortina that first belonged to Monsignor James Horan of Knock Airport fame and a unique Triumph Herald that appeared on one of the most famous album covers of all time.
Don’t worry though; we still have our regular great features too, with our cover story this month looking at an amazing collection of cars belonging to a father and son from Kingscourt in Co. Cavan. Elsewhere in the magazine we look at two great tractors – a beautifully original Fordson E1A Major tractor and a nicely-restored Ursus C-335 – while our commercial feature looks at one of the old favourites of the classic truck scene: the Leyland TK. Our motorcycle feature brings us the story of two more celebrities – the two green Honda 50s immortalised on the small screen by their appearance in the popular 11850 adverts.
We’re doing our best to keep up with the massive amount of events that have taken place over the past couple of months, and in this issue our reports range from Classic Car & Motorcycle Live at Mondello Park to the Irish Vintage Society All-Ireland Rally in Riverstown, Co. Sligo, and also include the Shane’s Castle Steam Rally, Limerick Classic Car Show, the IVVCC Spring Run and the Lakeland Vintage Club Annual Show & Autojumble, plus plenty of others besides. All of the usual favourites are in there too, so you won’t want to miss the September 2014 edition of Irish Vintage Scene; get yours at any good newsagents today or by ordering right here!
