Retro Classics Issue 52

With all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, you might not have noticed that the January to March issue of Retro Classics hit the shelf just on time for Christmas. It’s still on the shop shelves, and better still, it’s available direct from ourselves, with free postage if you want the print version. However, if you’d prefer to receive it straight into your inbox, then why not go for the digital version?

Heading up this issue is a low-riding 1964 VW Karmann Ghia that was rescued from fourteen years in storage, but  as you can see from the photo on the cover, not with the intention of a concours restoration. There’s also an incredible Mk1 Escort rally car that’s towed around by a period-perfect Ford Granada support car, as well as a Mitsubishi FTO V6 track-day toy, a Nissan Sunny ZX Coupe, and we drop into rallycross legend Denis Biggerstaff to check out some of his amazing collection of competition cars and the new home he’s just built for them. Event reports come from the Armagh City Car & Bike Show, ALMC Motor Club Show, the Causeway Coast Mini Weekend, Jumpstart Cars & Coffee, the Classic & Old Skool Summer Show, the Carole Nash Historic Festival, the Nenagh Classic Car Club Show and reviews of the 2023 Future Classics race series and historic and modified classes of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship, so there’s a lot to get your teeth into, as always.
