Retro Classics Magazine (Issue 49) April – June 2023
The April to June 2023 issue of Retro Classics is now on sale at good newsagents nationwide, or direct from us by ordering online quickly and conveniently. Once again we’ve a diverse selection of feature cars in this edition, headed by our cover car, an E36 BMW M3 that’s gone from one of the most potent nineties coupes on Irish roads to a full-on sprint and hillclimb competitor. Since 2015 it’s tackled stages and courses from Donegal to France, and has proven extremely reliable despite its relatively high mileage and occasional excursion into the scenery!
Further into the mag, we also feature an immaculate and extremely original Mk2 Escort RS2000, a seriously eye-catching Vauxhall Firenza 2300 droop-snoot that was bought new by its Donegal owner in 1974, a rare little Audi 50 on air-ride and BBS wheels and a lightly-modified Toyota Carina that was unearthed after seventeen years off the road, in excellent condition and with very small mileage on the clock. With a detailing guide that debunks some of the most notorious internet hacks, a look back at the often-quirky car ads of decades past and reports from Autosport International, Mondello Mix-Up, Cars & Coffee North East, Race Retro, Edgewood Automotive Cars & Caffeine, the Brekkie Roll VW Meet and a roundup of the last Precision Graphics Future Classics Championship, there’s plenty to get your teeth into in this issue of Retro Classics, so don’t miss out.
