Issue 178 (April 2021)
The cover of the April 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene carries two of the finest classic BMWs in the country, but coming from very different eras – the light and powerful 2002 Tii was one of the finest sports saloons of the 1970s, marrying a well-engineered chassis to a fuel-injected two-litre M20 engine, while the radical Z1 roadster was an eighties glimpse of a possible automotive future, featuring an unorthodox plastic body, retractable electric doors and innovative aerodynamics. Our second car feature is probably unique, a 1976 Toyota Celica that is in completely original, unrestored condition and with only 7,000 miles on the clock, as it’s been in storage almost all of its life. It still even has the plastic on the door panels!
Our monthly tractor feature shows us that not all classis Masseys are red, as this mid-seventies MF20 industrial is now a vision in bright yellow following an intensive restoration that was completed during last year’s travel restrictions. Our motorcycle slot fills us in on the recent restoration of an original Irish 1965 Honda C100, and our commercial feature outlines one enthusiast’s passion for his 1985 Range Rover V8.
All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – pre-order your April 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!
