Issue 136 (September 2017)
The September 2017 issue of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 136) is now on sale. Our cover feature this month tells the story of one enthusiast’s decades-long search for what is considered the rarest of the British-built Fords, a Consul Capri GT, a search that finally bore fruit recently with the stunning example you see here. What’s more, it’s been joined in the garage by an equally-lovely Consul Classic 315 saloon. We also compare two of the finest classic estates of the eighties to see which one’s best: the Volvo 245 and Mercedes S124. Our main tractor feature this month tells the story of a Co. Kerry-based club’s restoration of a MF135 to raffle for charity, while our second showcases a rare and beautifully-rebuilt SAME Tiger Six. Our motorcycle feature this month looks at a collection of classic mopeds from Rixe, Berini and Puch, while our commercial feature is on an amazing, one-of-a-kind Atkinson cement tanker, which converts to a camper at the touch of a button! Our event reports include the recent Irish Classic & Vintage Motor Show in Terenure, the Innishannon Steam Rally, VJMC Motorcycle Show and lots more, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your September 2017 issue of Irish Vintage Scene today at any good newsagent, or order here online!
