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 – pre-order your February 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene right here, and receive it before it’s in the shops, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
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!
