Issue 213 (March 2024)
Taking the cover of the March 2024 edition of Irish Vintage Scene is a saloon that was one of the most advanced on the market when launched in 1968, and became a benchmark for luxury and performance over its long production run. This Daimler Sovereign is a rarer and plusher prospect than the Jaguar XJ on which it was based, and as a highly original survivor of a now-forgotten marque, it’s something to savour today. Our second car feature sees us drop in to visit an ardent fan of pre-war cars, whose collection ranges from the humble Ford Model T to the Rolls-Royce 20hp, many of which have appeared on TV and movie screens over their lifetimes.
This month’s tractor feature delves into the history of the Perkins diesel powerplant and its many tractor applications over the years, but most notably in Fordson and Ferguson models here in Ireland. Our commercial feature tells the story of a simply spectacular classic Seagrave fire truck from the US that’s massive in every sense, and our featured motorcycle is an extremely rare 1913 Kynoch, a long-defunct Scottish marque with a unique backstory.
Lots of the usual favourites are in there too, including the results of our Christmas giveaway and Head-Skimmer crossword, so don’t miss out!
