We’ve an exotic treat for our readers on the cover of our April 2022 issue. The Maserati Bora was one of the most advanced supercars of the early 1970s, boasting not only a glorious 4.9-litre quad-cam V8 engine mounted in the middle, but all manner of sophisticated Citroen technology as the French giant had bought a controlling interest in the Italian sports-car maker in 1968.

Irish Vintage Scene Issue 190 April 2022

We’ve an exotic treat for our readers on the cover of our April 2022 issue. The Maserati Bora was one of the most advanced supercars of the early 1970s, boasting not only a glorious 4.9-litre quad-cam V8 engine mounted in the middle, but all manner of sophisticated Citroen technology as the French giant had bought a controlling interest in the Italian sports-car maker in 1968. This early example is owned by a Dublin enthusiast, who has been gradually fettling its condition in his ownership.

Our second car feature continues with the sporting theme but in a very different way, as one Riley fan outlines how he built his own special sports car from the burnt-out remains of a 1930s Riley.

Our tractor feature this month is a change from the norm, as it runs us through just some of the amazing collection of Aidan Strain from Co. Down, which is to be auctioned off by Cheffins on the 2nd of April. The massive collection runs from commonplace Masseys and Fords to true rarities from County and Roadless, plus probably the best line-ups of classic Internationals we’ve ever seen.

Our two-wheeled feature tells the story behind the restoration of a beautiful little 1960s Suzuki Supersport 50cc, while our commercial feature looks at a true local treasure in the shape of a 1936 Ford V8 fire engine that’s been part of Carlow’s history since new.

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