Retro Classics Magazine (Issue 51) October – December 2023


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


The October to December 2023 issue of Retro Classics is now on sale at good newsagents nationwide, or direct from us by ordering online quickly and conveniently. As always, we’ve combed the island for some of the most interesting classic and retro machines, starting with our very eye-catching cover car. It’s hard to believe now, but about a year ago this Toyota MR2 was sitting in a scrap pile as a parts car, with no engine or gearbox, missing components, faded paint and a rotted sill! Only after a change of heart by its owner did its fortunes turn around, resulting in one more of these mid-engined legends being returned to the road.

Further into the mag, we also feature a Mini 1275 GT that’s decades in the making, a beloved VW Polo that’s gone from learner car to show stopper, an unrestored Toyota Celica GT4 and a lairy pair of hot Fords – a 1700 crossflow Anglia and ST170-powered Cortina – both built at home. Reports in this issue come from Classic Fest 2023, the Donegal International Rally, Cultra Hillclimb, Here Comes the Sun, Carlow Vintage & Classic Motor Club’s Oak Park Show, the Clonmel VCC Car Show and the Celica Ireland Birthday Meet at Slane Castle, along with our regular detailing guide and a look back at the often-quirky car ads of decades past, so don’t miss out!
