Retro Classics Magazine (Issue 27) Oct-Dec 2017



The new issue of Retro Classics (October to December 2017) goes on sale on Tuesday the 3rd of October, and as always is packed with a wide range of retro and classic machinery. On the cover this time is a lovingly-built and very accurate tribute to the Group 4 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider rally car of the mid-seventies, while inside we bring you features on a drag-racing VW Beetle, a frankly crazy Corvette-powered Morris Minor rat-rod, a sublime Irish Mk1 Mini Cooper S, a father/son-built Mk2 Escort, an award-winning Opel Kadett C with red-top power, and a Toyota-engined Triumph Spitfire that was a true tale of attrition for its owner. We also bring you event reports spanning the island, from the Cultra Hillclimb near Belfast to the IMM Mini Meeting to the Terenure Classic Show and everything between. Add to this our usual show reports, club section, buyer’s guide and more, and you’re left with another unmissable issue of Retro Classics; get it at any good newsagents, or order it online at
