Irish Vintage Scene Issue 189 March 2022

The main cover slot of our March 2022 issue goes to a glorious piece of eighties excess in the form of a Porsche 911 SC that was sold new in Dublin in 1983 to one of the developers that shaped the city as we now know it. In distinctive Chiffon White with a brown Pasha interior, it’s been used and cherished by a small number of owners over its life, and recently came in for a light and sympathetic restoration in the hands of a renowned Irish specialist.

Our second featured car is another European jewel, this time a 1951 Lancia Ardea that was bought as a souvenir on the owner’s holiday to Malta! Thankfully, he has a very understanding partner…

Our tractor feature this month tells us about a very busy father-and-son team who have spent the last number of years restoring a nostalgic classic silage outfit, consisting of a Fordson Super Dexta, a Massey Ferguson 135, a 1960s Ugerlose single-chop silage harvester and a 10×6 silage trailer. Unsurprisingly, these two rigs draw a crowd wherever they go.

Our two-wheeled feature outlines one enthusiast’s love-affair with his 1950 Matchless G3L, while our commercial feature showcases a fascinating Tipperary-based collection of WW2-era trucks and jeeps.

To provide the vintage and classic vehicle enthusiast in Ireland with one place to source all they need for their hobby.
