January 2007, Issue 8

–       IRISH-BUILT YANKEE: A real rarity, this 1950 Ford Custom is no US import, but an Irish-built RHD example. While these were popular for taxi work back in the fifties and sixties, they have unfortunately become almost extinct today.

–       ALBERT’S FERGUSON COLLECTION: To many, one grey Ferguson might look the same as another, but when you line up a few beside each other their differences soon become apparent…

–       1914 AVELING & PORTER STEAM ROLLER: We pop in to see Gerry Bratton from Longford, for the first instalment of his mammoth restoration project.

–       FORD ANGLIA 100E: This old Ford has only racked up 13,000 miles since 1958, and is in simply stunning condition throughout.

–       GALLIC FLAIR – THE GODDESS: The Citroen DS is considered one of the most beautiful and radical cars ever put into production, and this month John Byrne delves into the history of ‘The Goddess’.

–       A HISTORY OF FUN: Norbert Sheerin makes a visit to an unusual car collection; a huge array of model Minis!

–       1905 SINGER: Vintage motorcycle enthusiast Austin Ryan takes us through his 102-year-old Singer motorbike, which received a two-year restoration in the nineties.
