Retro Classics Magazine (Issue 23) Oct-Dec 2016



The October to December 2016 issue of Retro Classics Magazine is now on sale, and as always is packed with features and event reports from the world of classic, retro and motorsport cars in Ireland. This time around the cover spot is scooped by a no-holes-barred tribute to one of the most legendary rally cars of the eighties: this very correct Ascona 400 replica packs top-notch hardware including a brand-new Phase 3 2.4 sixteen-valve built by Gerent Motorsport in Germany, plus a 400 transmission, brakes, proper VDO dash and lots more, and has been a dream build by its Donegal owner. And, amazingly enough it’s one of two rare Asconas in this issue, as we also look at a super-rare RHD Ascona A from 1974, one that’s been restored to beautiful order by a father-and-son team. Elsewhere in the magazine we look at machines as diverse as a wide-arched Mk1 Fiesta, a Mini 1275 GT with a famous former owner, a trophy-grabbing Mazda MX-5, a supercharged VW Polo Mk1, an Escort XR3i with a Zetec conversion, and even a sixties Chrysler Imperial that will look very familiar if you’ve ever watched the Green Hornet movie! Events-wise we have coverage from all over the island, including the Cultra Hillclimb, the Irish Classic & Vintage Motor Show, the Neal Egan Run and many more, and we also tell you what to look out for when buying yourself a Morris Minor, an affordable classic with lots of modifying potential. Throw in News & Products, Diary Dates and Retro Club Scene and you’re left with another packed issue.
