The June 2014 edition of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 97) is on sale now, and as usual is packed with a wide variety of interesting features. On the cover this month is a classic that was once such a popular model in Irish roads that it should be a common sight at vintage shows now, but instead is incredibly rare: an original Irish, unrestored Toyota Carina TA14. This low-mileage 1976 car has survived in amazing, unmolested condition, and has been safe in the stewardship of its current Toyota-mad owner since 1997. Our second feature car is from a completely different era, a gorgeous 1953 Riley RME that’s been travelling the roads of West Cork since 1996, while Neil Briscoe also takes us on a nervously excited test-drive in a Mercedes 300SL ‘Gullwing’, one of the most exciting classic cars of all.
