–       HOLDEN OLDIES: Surprisingly enough, East Cork is home to these two stunning Australian Holdens; a 1957 FE saloon and a 1958 FC utility.

–       THE GENERATION GAME: Bought new in 1964, this Fordson Super Major is still in the same Tipperary family, 45 years later.

–       THREE TIMES A LADY: You won’t see another one of these on the road or at a show, as it was the only one ever built! A homage to the infamous three-wheeled Morgan Supersports of the 1930s, it is now the proud transport of a lady classic car enthusiast from Wexford.

–       FAMILY GUY: Well-known classic truck enthusiast Bill Kiely has recently completed the restoration of this Guy Big J, a once common truck in Ireland but extremely rare nowadays.

–       MILITARY VELOCETTE: Cliff Donaldson tells us of the restoration of this fantastic 1934 MOV Velocette motorcycle.

–       MODERN CLASSIC: It seems that the current obsession with fusing old-school styling with modern technology has reached every market sector, including tractors. Fancy a Massey Ferguson 35 with a 2009 registration? Say hello to the TAFE 35 Classic.
