Issue 170 IVS & Issue 38 RC
Irish Vintage Scene issue 170:
Gracing the cover of the August 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is a father-and-son collection of big Opels including a Commodore B Coupe, Rekord E and a potent Monza GSE, all rarely-seen models today, while our second car feature is another true rarity – an Irish-assembled 1936 Adler Trumpf Junior that was rescued from a quarry in derelict condition. Our feature tractor this month is another small German in the shape of a highly-original 1956 Allgaier A111, while our motorcycle feature revisits a 1972 ex-Garda Triumph T100P that we last saw on our pages fourteen years ago. Rounding out this issue is our commercial vehicle feature on what is believed to be the only Bedford Chevanne van in the Republic of Ireland. All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out.
Retro Classics issue 38:
The July to September 2020 issue of Retro Classics is now on sale, and as always we’ve a fantastic selection of fast classics for you to peruse. Taking the cover slot this time around is a Mk1 Mazda MX-5 with a whole lot more grunt than standard thanks to a three-litre Jag V6 conversion undertaken at home, while another potent Japanese classic in this issue is a mint Subaru Impreza WRX RA, a real rally contender for the road. We have a smattering of classic Fords for you, including a stunning Mk1 Escort that’s been given a unique Pinto-powered Mexico twist, one fan’s Mk2 Capri/Mk3 Cortina pairing and the incredible story of an accurate replica of the Bullitt Mustang restored completely by a first-timer with nothing but some instruction books and a shedload of enthusiasm. It’s not all Fords though – a show-winning, R32-powered Mk2 VW Golf GTI also features, as does the story of ‘Tiny Magic’, an Opel Kadett C Coupe that was rallied to great effect in the late seventies and early eighties, and is still owned by its driver today. Our regular buyer’s guide focuses this time on the fun little Fiat Cinqecento Sporting, we show you how to restore your plastic headlamps in our new regular detailing slot, and there’s more besides, so don’t miss out.
