Retro Classics Issue 16 January-March 2015



The January to March 2015 issue of Retro Classics Magazine is now on sale, and as always is packed from cover to cover with some of the finest modified classics in Ireland. On the cover is a beautiful 1970 Mini Cooper S, an original Dublin car that’s come in for some very subtle upgrades during its recent extensive restoration. A well-engineered VW Beetle with a 2.5-litre Subaru engine also features, as does a stunning Lotus twin-cam-powered Mk1 Escort. For competition car fans there’s a feature on one man’s collection of Hillman/Chrysler rally cars (and his Avenger estate ‘service wagon’), and speaking of wagons we also take a look at a 1963 Consul Cortina estate that’s been brought up to 1500GT specification. A crazy Hayabusa-powered Stryker kit car almost gives our editor pneumonia, and our well-mixed features are rounded off by a very subtle-looking Opel Kadett C that hides plenty of upgrades under the skin. And, for something different to the norm, we also bring you an in-depth look at the recent Retro Dyno Day, which saw a group of retro water-cooled VWs (and one Porsche) put on the rolling road for a good-natured and fun day out. Events-wise we’ve the whole country covered, from the Cultra Hillclimb in Co. Down to the Classic Fords 4 CF show in Co. Cork, and we also have a buyer’s guide on one of the most unusual sporty coupes of the eighties – the Volvo 480. Add to all this our Club Scene section, News & Products and Diary Dates listings and you’ve got another jam-packed issue.
