IRISH VINTAGE SCENE ISSUE 195
Gracing the cover of our September 2022 issue is one of the most special and important car models of all time – this year marks the 100th birthday of the one and only Austin Seven, and to celebrate we bring you a bumper seven-page feature on Herbert Austin’s baby. Our second featured car couldn’t be more different, a rare, fast and exclusive Bitter CD coupe from the mid-1980s, the brainchild of German former motor racer Erich Bitter.
Our tractor feature this month delves into a collection of Lanz Bulldog tractors based in Co. Laois, and owned by a life-long fan of the marque. We are delighted to feature a Brough Superior motorcycle in the magazine for the first time, a JAP V-twin-powered 1937 11.50 to be exact, while our commercial vehicle feature showcases a 1972 Ford D-Series that was rescued from the briars and restored as a lockdown project by a father and son team from Co. Westmeath.
