July 2009, Issue 38

–       STYLISH TR3: John Carleton meets with the lucky owner of this primrose yellow Triumph TR3, who restored it in his own garage in Co. Antrim.

–       THE BIG MCCORMICK: Back in the early twenties big tractors were a rare sight in Ireland, so you can imagine what a stir this McCormick-Deering 15-30 caused when it arrived in Co. Meath in 1929.

–       GREAT WHITE: There can’t be many Mk3 Ford Capris around in such pristine condition as this 1.6 Laser, which has covered a mere 7,000 miles in its lifetime.

–       KING OF THE CROP: This tricycle row-crop John Deere Model A caught our attention at the Durrow Vintage Show, where it made its debut, so we had to find out more.

–       BACK IN BLACK: Andrew Pollock meets with Guinness transport historian Paddy O’Donovan, to see just some of his amazing collection of trucks related to the famous brewery.

–       ROCKET MAN: Chris Whitehead was lucky enough to own his own BSA Road Rocket at the tender age of eighteen; now he has a replica of that very machine on which to relive his racing days.

–       A HAVEN AT O’HAGAN’S: Tom Heavey returns to James O’Hagan’s for a closer look at more of his tractor and car collection.
