The April to June 2021 issue of Retro Classics hits the shop shelves on Thursday the 1st of April, but you can BUY it right now and receive it to your door with FREE POSTAGE! As always, we’ve a diverse selection of fast classics for you to peruse, with the cover slot going to a rare Irish survivor in the form of a 1979 Kildare-registered Datsun 260Z. This example sat rusting in a barn in the midlands for many, many years before its new Cork owner embarked on its ambitious restoration, which as you can see included some choice modifications along the way.

A pair of cherished Ford Sierra Cosworths also feature, both being two-wheel-drive Sapphire saloons from the late eighties and early nineties. The beautiful Hillman Imp we bring you might look like a sweet and innocent little classic but it’s harbouring a sting in its tail in the shape of a potent Alfa Romeo boxer engine, while the featured Mk1 Escort is thought to have been the first such Zetec conversion ever undertaken in the country, being completed almost 25 years ago now! A long-owned Mini Clubman also features, as does one Northern Ireland family’s amazing collection of classic and performance cars.  

With a detailing guide to help you look after your car’s leather interior, a look back at the quirky car ads of decades past and a buyer’s guide on the legendary Ford Capri Mk1, there’s plenty to get your teeth into in this issue of Retro Classics, so don’t miss out – get your copy at any good newsagent, or click here to order your copy online, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
