Issue 66 (November 2011)
The November 2011 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is on sale now, and as always is packed with over 100 pages of news, event reports and great features. Our cover story this month celebrates the fiftieth birthday of the MG Midget, quite probably the most important small sports car ever produced, and the bumper feature also ties in with the MG Enthusiasts’ Club of Ireland who are thirty years in existence in 2011; it’s all happening on the MG front! Our second car feature is hugely topical at the moment, as we delve into the history of two very famous Irish cars, the 1947 Dodge popularised by Eamonn De Valera and the Irish presidential Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith, ZJ 5000. Motorcycle fans are sure to be fascinated by the tale of a Triumph Model-H discovered during a house-clearout in Northern Ireland, while enthusiasts of classic commercials are in for a treat with our feature of a collection of unusual Shelvoke & Drewry lorries. We’ve two tractors from very different eras for our classic tractor fans this month by way of a David Brown Super Cropmaster from 1951 and a Massey-Ferguson 133 from 1975, both of which have been restored to outstanding condition. With coverage of the National Ploughing Championships and Mountbellew Vintage Rally, as well as many more events from around the country, the November issue of Irish Vintage Scene is packed from cover to cover, so don’t miss out; get your copy today in all good newsagents, or click the button on this page to buy online!
