IRISH VINTAGE SCENE ISSUE 194

The cover of our August 2022 issue goes to one of the most beautiful cars we’ve featured in a long time – this 1951 Jaguar XK120 is not only an extremely rare Irish-built example, it has a unique back-story and a racing history on both sides of the Irish Sea. Our second featured car is another rarity, an Edsel Ranger two-door, of which less than 6,000 were built in 1959 by this ill-fated brand. 

Our tractor feature this month is a little left of field as it tells the story behind the restoration of an early seventies JCB 2D Mk2 digger, in order to gift it to a beloved father who had bought one new in 1976 to start his own business ventures. Our motorcycle feature revisits the story behind the outrageous six-cylinder Honda CBX Super Sport, while our commercial feature showcases a Leyland FG that’s been restored to absolutely stunning condition by a Dublin-based enthusiast.
