About the Book
In April 2005 I bought a 54-year old coach for restoration. It had fallen on hard times. A lot of hard work has been done since then, and I have learnt much about the art of bus-restoration, but there is a lot still to do.
This is an account of the restoration to date, with over 140 photos.
I hope it will inspire someone else to tackle a similar job saving another old wreck for future generations.
Worked for IBM for 11 years from 1967, then for a software house, then formed my own software company Crown Systems in 1988. Bought my first old bus in 1988 and have had 5 other buses and coaches since then. Currently own 2 buses and a coach, which is too many!
