IRISH VINTAGE SCENE ISSUE 192
The cover spot of our June 2022 issue goes to a beautiful rarity in the form of a Dublin-assembled 1952 TD, which had lain as an unfinished project for many decades following the tragic passing of its owner. It’s recently been restored, and is now back on the road in the summer sunshine. Our second car story outlines the efforts that one enthusiast went to in order to recommission a Ferrari Dino 246 GT after several decades in dry storage.
Our tractor feature this month looks at a 1938 Fordson Model N that, despite its great age, is still a regular entrant in ploughing competitions and is a source of great enjoyment for its owner and his young daughter. Our motorcycle feature outlines the restoration of a rare 1940s rigid-frame Dot Villiers trials bike that was sourced as a project from the Dot factory itself, and our commercial feature showcases the stunning result of a full restoration on a Ford Sierra P100 pickup that’s been with one family since new.
All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – buy your June 2022 issue of Irish Vintage Scene right here with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
