IRISH VINTAGE SCENE ISSUE 196
Claiming the cover spot of our October 2022 issue is one of the most infamous Italian cars of all, but sadly for the wrong reasons – the stylish, practical and lively Lancia Beta was on course to turn around its maker’s fortunes when it was launched in 1972, but some well-publicised corrosion issues unfortunately took over the narrative and ruined its reputation. Fifty years after its launch, we look at what should have been an Italian success story. Our second featured car is a simply stunning 1978 Mini 1000 that was purchased in order to lower with a big set of wheels, but when its owner realised how amazingly original it was, he changed his plans from modification to preservation.
Our tractor feature this month tells the story of a recently restored Massey Ferguson 65 that’s been part of the same Galway family for three decades, our motorcycle feature introduces us to two members of the Irish Classic Racing Association and three of their racing machines from Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha, and our commercial vehicle feature showcases a beautiful 1966 VW Microbus that was rebuilt by its owner after he imported it from the US, where it had been sitting in a field since the nineties!
