Retro Classics Magazine (Issue 26)
The July to September 2017 issue of Retro Classics 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. On the cover this time is a Mk3 Ford Capri with a style all of its own, packing a John Player Special-inspired paint scheme, Japanese-influenced wheels and a 2.3-litre Ford Galaxy motor under the bonnet! We also check out a period-style competition Mini 1275GT, a classic NASCAR-style Ford Galaxie 500, an extremely rare Vauxhall Nova Sport homologation special, a home-built two-litre Mk2 Escort four-door and even an MGB GT that’s been given a serious performance upgrade thanks to a Nissan turbo engine, and we’re let loose in one of the most iconic drivers’ cars ever – the 1973 Porsche 911 2.7RS. We give you the tips you’ll need to buy yourself an Opel Manta B in our regular buying guide, and also bring you event reports spanning the island, from the DubShed show in Lisburn to the Circuit Deja Vu rally festival in Killarney and everything between, so don’t miss out – get your copy today!
