...COOL thread!! 8) 8) :D
- well done, once more, Deano, with the pics.....I'D be VERY interested to know how many are on the road now, or will be in the next couple of months :wink: :D

..Rich Burrows' is still the oldest on the road in the UK ( he was at Vic farm, by the way), & has no intention of parting with it, despite his other projects

...when i bought my '64 in '96 it was described as 'Barndoor'; & there was precious little info for me to research into the subject, then.The first one i saw up close/ in detail was the yellow/blue panel KK had at one of their swapmeets.
The internet has changed everything, & sites like Tonny's & BDMs make everyting a lot easier for restorations. More importantly, PEOPLE like Tonny, Johnny, Deano & Rikki make early busses a plausible practicality, & a whole shedload of FUN!! :D :wink: :D 8)

I was thinking that.... We could have a thread that has no postings allowed just the first message is the list and then locked.. this thread could be used to post updates etc...

I didn't mean to crash in a take over Rich (Bigbulli's) thread but was itching to find out what was in the country and who owned what.. Sorry Rich :)

Tis there - Just didn't have the chassis number, hence it was down the list.
