IRISH VINTAGE SCENE ISSUE 181
Gracing the cover of the July 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is a shining example of one of the most luxurious and desirable saloons of its era – this V8-powered Rover P5B was a dream classic for its owner, after he was driven to work in a new one back in his apprentice days. Our second car feature this month sees us drop in on Ireland’s newest Morgan dealership to see what’s changed in these timeless roadsters over the years, with the newest Plus 4 hosting plenty of new advances under its familiar skin.
Our tractor feature this month showcases a fine collection of Nuffields in Co. Laois, including one 4/60 that’s been in the same ownership since the sixties and remains in unrestored condition. Our motorcycle slot goes to a unique 1962 Ariel Leader that’s been the subject of an unusual engine transplant in its past, while our commercial feature tells the story of one family’s quest to restore a classic ERF LV truck, after their long association with this famous marque.
All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – pre-order your July 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 41
The April to June 2021 issue of Retro Classics hits the shop shelves on Thursday the 1st of April, but you can PRE-ORDER it right now and receive it to your door with FREE POSTAGE! As always, we’ve a diverse selection of fast classics for you to peruse, with the cover slot going to a rare Irish survivor in the form of a 1979 Kildare-registered Datsun 260Z. This example sat rusting in a barn in the midlands for many, many years before its new Cork owner embarked on its ambitious restoration, which as you can see included some choice modifications along the way.
A pair of cherished Ford Sierra Cosworths also feature, both being two-wheel-drive Sapphire saloons from the late eighties and early nineties. The beautiful Hillman Imp we bring you might look like a sweet and innocent little classic but it’s harbouring a sting in its tail in the shape of a potent Alfa Romeo boxer engine, while the featured Mk1 Escort is thought to have been the first such Zetec conversion ever undertaken in the country, being completed almost 25 years ago now! A long-owned Mini Clubman also features, as does one Northern Ireland family’s amazing collection of classic and performance cars.
With a detailing guide to help you look after your car’s leather interior, a look back at the quirky car ads of decades past and a buyer’s guide on the legendary Ford Capri Mk1, there’s plenty to get your teeth into in this issue of Retro Classics, so don’t miss out – click here to pre-order your copy online, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
