The March 2018 issue of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 142) is now on sale, and on the front cover this month is quite literally one of the very best Ford Escort RS2000s in existence, as its owner has pulled out all of the stops imaginable in his quest for originality and new-old-stock parts. In fact, the only thing more impressive than his haul of NOS parts is the collection of trophies that this car has already won in its short time on the show circuit! Moving to the completely opposite end of the age spectrum, our second car feature tells the unique story of a 1907 Austin 18/24 Hertford that’s a true automotive treasure, believed to be the oldest Austin on the road worldwide.

Our first feature tractor is also a highly historic vehicle, as this very rare, early production Fordson MOM (Ministry of Munitions) celebrates its 100th birthday this month. Our second tractor feature recounts the story of one Galway-man’s 55-year relationship with his faithful Massey Ferguson 35, which has firmly become part of his family. Our motorcycle feature this month looks back at the life and times of a Co. Tyrone mechanic and former motorcycle racer, while our commercial feature showcases one of the finest Morris Minor 6cwt pickups in the country, one that’s picked up a few awards in its time. Event reports include the Ballinakill Vintage & Classic Owners Club Indoor Show in Portlaoise, the National Ploughing Championships and many more, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your March 2018 issue of Irish Vintage Scene today at any good newsagent, or order here online!
