Issue 157 (June 2019)
The June 2019 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is now on sale, and on this month’s cover is an impeccable example of one of the rarest and most desirable classic Fords of them all – this Escort RS1800 has emerged from a nut-and-bolt rebuild in the last year to wow all that see it in person. And, even though our second feature car wouldn’t be able to compete with the Escort in performance terms, both at classic shows and on the open road this restored 1960s BMW Isetta bubble car would certainly rival its crowd-pulling abilities! Our main tractor feature this month tells the story of a 1947 Farmall A that’s been in the same Waterford family since the 1960s (with a look at the owner’s Steyr T80 and Saab 95 thrown in for good measure), while our second tractor story outlines how a unique, Commer-engined Ferguson 20 came into being. In our motorcycle feature we explore the classic British bike collection of a life-long enthusiast from Co. Clare, and our featured commercial vehicle is a stunning Atkinson Borderer that’s only just emerged from a major restoration. Event reports in this issue include the Tipperary Vintage & Custom Rally, the Miniature World Model Show, Tractor World Malvern and more besides, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your June 2019 issue of Irish Vintage Scene today at any good newsagent, or order here online!
