October 2015 VOTM

Post by 8 8US » Thu Oct 01, 2015 6:54 am

For the next theme Biglozzer has proposed BEFORE & AFTER bus pics, so you need at least two pics of each bus that is entered, first pic showing how you got your bus and second how it is today.

Happy to see the brilliant restoration buses which inspire us all and also those members with history related buses, ie a pic from the 60's / 70's of your bus and scene and a pic today showing how times, modifications, colour schemes and fashions have changed.

All allowed to enter whether you entered and won last month or have never entered before, this is just a great way for your buses to be seen in all their glory.

I will start a poll on the 24th October and let it run for 7 days.

It has taken many hours of acetone and wire wool to get the original dove blue back !
