Issue 193 IVS & Issue 45 RC





The cover of our July 2022 issue goes to a heartening story for anyone that’s been searching for a long-lost car from their past. This Toyota enthusiast had been looking to buy a Corolla KE30 due to fond memories of the one his father bought new in 1977, and unwittingly managed to buy that very car after it had been on the missing list for over forty years! Now fully restored, unlikely to ever leave his family again. Our second featured car is a real rarity, one of just twelve Langridge Navajo kit-cars sold in the mid-eighties and is just fresh out of a comprehensive rebuild in Northern Ireland.

Our tractor feature this month tells the story of a 1950 Renault R7012 that was a surprise birthday present for its owner, who now uses it for vintage ploughing matches. Our motorcycle feature outlines one fan’s love for his very original 1969 Yamaha YAS1, and our commercial feature showcases a Scania 141 and Volvo F10 owned by a Longford family steeped in haulage.
