Issue 172 IVS & Issue 39 RC
Irish Vintage Scene issue 172:
Gracing the cover of the September 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is a very rare survivor of what was a massively important model for Ford – the Mk3 Escort ushered in a new era of front-wheel-drive packaging for the already legendary nameplate, and this unrestored Pastell Yellow example remains just how it rolled off the showroom floor in 1980. Our second car feature tells the motorsport history of one Northern Ireland enthusiast, as well as introducing his impeccable Triumph Dolomite Sprint. Our feature tractor this month is a very early production Massey Ferguson 135 from 1964 that was restored earlier this year, but hasn’t yet seen a show due to the Covid-19 situation, while our motorcycle feature focuses on a rebuilt Yamaha RD125 from 1973, a model that kick-started the riding career of countless bikers. Rounding out this issue is our commercial vehicle feature on a Ford Thames ET6 recovery truck that has a fascinating history based in Co. Cork. All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your September 2020 issue of Irish Vintage Scene at any good newsagent, or order it here with Retro Classics magazine.
