Issue 176 IVS & Issue 40 RC
Irish Vintage Scene issue 176:
Taking the cover spot of the February 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene are a beautiful pair of Mini Clubmans that have been restored in West Cork – a saloon and an estate – while a stunning Riley One-Point-Five with a local Co. Tyrone history also features. Our monthly tractor feature is the unique story of a wartime Fordson Model N that amazingly has been in the same Antrim family since 1957, and was restored from derelict condition having stood unused for decades, while our motorcycle slot goes to a desirable 1961 Norton Dominator 88SS that’s been built into a beautiful and period-correct cafe-racer by a Dublin specialist. Our commercial feature looks at a mint, low-mileage 1980s Toyota Land Cruiser J70 imported from the UK, while we also tell the story of the unique Beradino GT, a one-off sports car built by a German engineer as a lifelong project.
All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your February 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene at any good newsagent, or order it here with FREE POSTAGE!
Retro Classics issue 40:
The January to March 2021 issue of Retro Classics is now on sale at good newsagents nationwide, or direct from us by ordering online with FREE POSTAGE. As always, we’ve a fantastic selection of fast classics for you to peruse, with the cover being graced by a rare 1989 Nissan ZX Coupe Twin Cam – when’s the last time you saw one of those! This example was recently tracked down by a lifelong fan whose father had owned two brand new ones in the eighties, but it wasn’t all plain sailing, as our feature outlines.
A pair of stunning Mk1 Golf GTIs also feature, one being a rare Irish-sold 1980 car and the other a real sleeper with 270 turbocharged horses under the bonnet. The Mk2 Escort we bring you in this issue is far from your run-of-the-mill Mexico or RS, a bright orange four-door track monster with a Saab turbo transplant, and speaking of transplants, the super-subtle BMW E21 323i we feature is not one to take on at the traffic lights either, thanks to its modern M52 2.8 conversion. A beautiful blue Mini restored as a young enthusiast’s first-time project and a show-stopping 1955 Chevy 3100 pickup round out another hugely diverse issue, along with a buyer’s guide on the timelessly elegant Mercedes R107 SL.
With a detailing guide looking forward to getting your classic show-ready, a look back at the quirky car ads of decades past and a look at some recent motoring event, there’s plenty to get your teeth into in this issue of Retro Classics, so don’t miss out – get your copy at any good newsagent, or click here to order your copy online, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
