Issue 169-2 (July 2020)
Taking the cover slot on the July 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is a high-performance GT that needs no introduction – this particular Jaguar XJ-S is one of the original V12 models from the late seventies, and shows us just how radical and luxurious the big Jag was in its time. Our second car feature is a double-bill, as one Co. Clare enthusiast introduces us to his beautiful Austin Devon and Ford Model T short-rad. Our feature tractor this month is a mighty Ford 8600, one of the true giants of the 1970s, while our motorcycle feature looks at the story of the now-rare Kawasaki Avenger A7 of the late sixties and our featured commercial vehicle is a Leyland FG truck that came in for an extensive restoration at the hands of its owner. We drop in on the last running of the famous London-to-Brighton Veteran Car Run, bring you the first of a new series of restoration articles, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – order your July 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene right here!
