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.

RETRO CLASSICS ISSUE 42
The July to September 2021 issue of Retro Classics hits the shop shelves on Thursday the 1st of July, 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 this issue’s cover going to a Ford Escort Mk2 rally car that’s been the ten-year dream project for its two owners. After putting a con-rod out of the original crossflow back in 2009, they’ve rebuilt their precious competition car with a twin-cam Toyota 4AGE on Jenvey throttle bodies, six-linked rear end and a host of other upgrades, and are itching to get it back out on the stages.
An absolutely stunning 1975 Toyota Celica also features in this issue, the result of a whole lot of metal fabrication work by its skilful owner. The MG Midget we bring you isn’t the cute roadster you’re familiar with, as it’s much modified beneath with space-frame construction, radically altered engine position and 125bhp A-series power. The Zetec-powered Mk2 Fiesta ‘XRZ’ is a beautifully-built example that’s now the first retro classic of an enthusiastic young owner, while a funky sixties Plymouth Belvedere police cruiser and a now-rare Nissan Primera P10 SRi round out another very varied issue.
With a detailing guide to help you rejuvenate your car’s plastic trim, a look back at the quirky car ads of decades past and a buyer’s guide on the iconic Ford Cortina Mk3, 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!
