Issue 185 IVS & Issue 43 RC




On the cover of the November 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is an impeccable Ford Capri 2.0S that’s only covered 66,000 miles from new, and has recently received a complete, engine-out respray to return it to factory condition. It still wears all of its original panels and interior, and is the teenage dream-car of its long-time owner. Our second featured car is another black beauty from the 1980s, this time an Opel Ascona C that recently returned to its first neighbourhood in Co. Carlow following a full restoration.

Our tractor feature this month tells the story of a recently-restored Massey Ferguson 135 that’s been a member of its family for over thirty years. Our motorcycle feature takes a look at a lovely trio of small motorcycles in the ownership of a Co. Tyrone enthusiast (a Norman Nippy, Triumph Tiger Cub and BSA Bantam D1), while our commercial feature tells the tale of a Morris 1300 van that’s just come through a comprehensive rebuild in the style of a BMC competition support vehicle.

As always, we’ve a diverse selection of fast classics for you to peruse, with this issue’s cover going to a stunning MGB that’s just been transformed from a mild-mannered roadster into a wide-arched, V8-powered beast. We also feature a very eye-catching wide-arch Mk1 Fiesta in Signal Yellow, as well as a low-riding VW Beetle that was literally rescued from the briars, a much-storied Celica RA28 GT and a 2.5-swapped BMW E30 Touring that’s been the long-serving daily driver for its owner since 1995.

With a detailing guide to help you prepare and protect your precious classic in advance of winter, a look back at the quirky car ads of decades past and a return to event reports at last (this time including the Seaside Revival Vintage Festival in Bangor, The IEC Summit Run, Ted’s Opel Vauxhall Run, National Classic Spin 2021, Croft Hillclimb, NI Ford Sierra Club’s Donegal Run and a roundup of ICCR racing at Mondello), there’s plenty to get your teeth into in this issue of Retro Classics, so don’t miss out – click here to buy your copy online, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
