Issue 167 (April 2020)
The April 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is now on sale, and taking the cover slot this month is an original Irish, low-mileage Toyota Starlet that has remained in the same family since it was bought new in Co. Clare in 1982, and has never needed restoration. Our second car feature introduces us to the Corrigan family and their collection of interesting classics, which were built to be driven rather than polished. Our main feature tractor this month is a fearsome Fordson Major E1A that’s been converted to Perkins V8 diesel power, while our second tells the story of one West Cork farmer’s loyalty to the Zetor marque from the 1970s to today. Our motorcycle feature this month looks at an ex-Dublin Gas Company 1936 BSA W6 that’s been restored from very poor condition, and our featured commercial vehicle is an evocative Ford Thames Trader recovery truck from 1957. Event reports in this issue include the Newcastle Indoor Classic Car Show, RIAC Pioneer Run, IVVMCC Leopardstown Motorcycle Show and more besides, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your April 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene today at any good newsagent, or order (or subscribe) here online!
