(Waiting for) My new bus!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by DriftingBear, Sep 14, 2012.

  1. Some of you know already, but I thought I'd share with everyone that I've just bought my very first late bay! She currently resides in California, and will be collected in the next week or so, and hopefully with me in Devon in a few weeks time. It's a Bali Yellow 1974 Westie, with original interior and rust free. The interior needs a bit of tlc, and there's a couple of little bits need fixing, but apart from that she should be good to go!

    People on the forum have been so helpful, and I wouldn't have found this bus, or bought it without the help and advice from you guys, so THANK YOU!

    I'm gonna have lots of questions along the way, and hopefully one day I'll be able to help some other people on here instead of being the one asking all the questions!

    Here she is... just need to think of a name now! :D
