June 2007, Issue 13

–       FAST ORANGE: Not many of our classics get worked very hard anymore, but this little orange Hillman Imp does; it’s its owner’s everyday car!

–       THE PRODIGAL RETURNS: This little Fiat 211R tractor was bought new by Noel Connolly’s father in 1963; now, it has returned to the Connolly family once again, after a chance encounter at a vintage rally.

–       QUEEN OF THE ROAD PT.2: Norbert Sheerin brings us the second instalment of his story of a stately Chrysler De Soto.

–       A UNIQUE MORRIS 1100: Although not the rarest of classic models, this 1100 is very special as it has only covered 6,490 miles since 1968!

–       FERGUSON FAVOURITES: Andrew Pollock meets an ardent MF fan from Co. Meath, who has restored a fine array of machinery including an original 712 spreader.

–       DERRYGLAD FOLK MUSEUM: John Roche visits the Derryglad Folk Museum in Athlone to check out their fine selection of exhibits.

–       MORRIS 8: 1934 to 1948: Gerry Barrett guides us through the history of the Morris 8, a much-loved alternative to the Ford Model Y in this country.
