Bottom Line

The June 2013 edition of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 85) is on sale now, and as you’ve come to expect is packed with a wide variety of fascinating features. On the cover this month is one of the most recognizable and desirable sports cars of the 20th century, and one that is celebrating an important birthday this year; the Porsche 911 is fifty years old in 2013, and to mark the occasion we delve into the history of this rear-engined legend, and meet up with the owner of a ’68 911T. Elsewhere in the magazine we bring you the amazing story behind an unfamiliar Fiat model that has stumped most car enthusiasts we’ve met; this Irish-assembled 1400A has survived in extremely original condition, and is most likely unique. We also have another low-mileage, unmolested gem for you in the shape of a VW Transporter ambulance, that was stationed at the Dairygold creamery in Mitchelstown from 1974 to 1996.

The June 2013 edition of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 85) is, as you’ve come to expect, packed with a wide variety of fascinating features. On the cover this month is one of the most recognizable and desirable sports cars of the 20th century, and one that is celebrating an important birthday this year; the Porsche 911 is fifty years old in 2013, and to mark the occasion we delve into the history of this rear-engined legend, and meet up with the owner of a ’68 911T. Elsewhere in the magazine we bring you the amazing story behind an unfamiliar Fiat model that has stumped most car enthusiasts we’ve met; this Irish-assembled 1400A has survived in extremely original condition, and is most likely unique. We also have another low-mileage, unmolested gem for you in the shape of a VW Transporter ambulance, that was stationed at the Dairygold creamery in Mitchelstown from 1974 to 1996.

Our feature tractors this month both come from Eastern Europe. The first is a Zetor 2511 that has just been restored to fantastic condition in Co. Wicklow; its owner wanted to restore a Zetor as he had driven a similar Ursus C-335 in his youth, and lo and behold we also feature one of these models this month, a 1974 model that was rescued in the nick of time from a building labeled for demolition!

Motorcycle enthusiasts are in for a nostalgic read thanks to our feature on a restored Puch VS50 DK scooter, an original Irish 1960 model to boot, while our classic commercial this month is a 1979 Ford D-Series tipper truck with a lovely family story behind it.

With the show season now in full swing our event coverage is in the increase once more, and is headed up this month by a two-page report on the Durrow Vintage Show. We also drop in on the Millstreet and Tipperary shows held on Easter Sunday, plus two new indoor shows, the Cork Monster Motorcycle Show and the Connacht Veteran & Vintage Motor Club’s Classic & Vintage Motor Show. With all this, plus our usual attractions like Laid to Rust, Your Letters, News & Events and lots, lots more, you won’t want to miss the June 2013 issue of Irish Vintage Scene; get yours today!

The Features

Tail Gunner

It’s hard to believe that the Porsche 911 has been around for fifty years now. In that time it’s gone from sports car to supercar, and has racked up countless competition victories in various disciplines. To mark its big five-oh Andrew Pollock meets up with the lucky owner of a sixties variant to check out just where the car’s massive appeal originated.

Red Zetor Day

The 11-Series Zetor range will be one familiar to many readers, as these tractors gave sterling service on many Irish farms for decades, all for little cost and with minimal repair time. John Darcy from Co. Wicklow has just restored an example of the baby of the range, the two-cylinder 2511, to fantastic condition, as outlined by Carl Czanik this month.

A Wyse Choice

Many readers will have had their first two-wheeled experiences on a Puch scooter, and Pat Wyse is no exception. Pat has clear memories of sitting on the tank of his father, James’ Puch 50 while they went to the bog, coming back with the turf stacked up on the back of the scooter. Pat’s memories are still strong, and drove him to recently restore a 1960 Puch VS50 DK for himself.

A Chip off the Old Block

It’s always nice when you can trace an interest in a certain vehicle back through successive family generations, and that’s certainly the case with this month’s classic commercial feature. William Maybury from West Cork is the third generation of his family to own a D-Series Ford, as he has recently finished the restoration of a sand and gravel tipper similar to that run by his grandfather many years ago.

Aladdin’s Cave

One of the beauties of working at Irish Vintage Scene is that we get to see first-hand so many amazing collections of vehicles. Since the introduction of the Model Scene section we have also gotten to see some fantastic model collections too, and a recent visit to Anthony Payne from Limerick left our own Tom Heavey absolutely speechless. When you see the photos, you’ll realise why.
