Special Feature on Saturday

75 years of the Citroen 2CV.

The 2CV was conceived before WW2 but was hidden from the invading Germans and not launched until the 1948 Paris Motor Show. This year it reaches the age of 75.

Northern Ireland Tin Snails are joining us with a cavalcade of 2CVs and their derivatives.

The 2CV platform spawned many variants; Notably these include the 2CV-based delivery vans known as fourgonnettes, the Ami, the Dyane, the Acadiane, and the Mehari. In total, Citroën manufactured over 9 million of the 2CVs and its derivative models.

70 years of David Brown 25D, 30D & 50D 

Introduced in 1953 the David Brown 25D, 30D & 50D are 70 years old this year.

60 years of Fordson New Performance Super Major and Super Dexta

The original Super Major was replaced in 1963, by the improved New Performance Super Major. This version was short-lived, as Fordson tractor production would be phased out in 1964. Nevertheless, the Super family of Fordson tractors are still remembered as iconic machines of their generation.

The three-cylinder Dexta had proved so successful at filling the smaller tractor role that the Super Dexta joined it using the same engine as the Dexta, but this was bored-out to increase the power to 39.5hp; quite a bit more than the Dexta’s 32hp.
