    Anyone remember the beautiful blue bus/coach that was being restored?

    What happened to it? Did it get finished and bought over?

    I can't remember the posters name but haven't seen any updates for a while.

    It all went tits up at the end of last year.

    The restoration company Owner
    died unexpectedly and his daughter has no interest in the company but his foreman tried to keep things going for a while but Kerry has heard nothing from them since december.
    He has sold his Rv and car to keep the wolves from the door.

    It is so close to completion but nothing is happening stateside.

    Thanks for that Pappajohn, what a shame. Poor Kerry, I hope all that hard work and considerable financial outlay won't go to waste.

    Can he not ship it home and finish it off here?

    I think the main problem is finance, the bus is in California and it needs shipping to the east coast.

    Sad to see this and wish Kerry & family the best and hope the dream comes to fruition soon, so we can all see the finished bus.
    Cheers, Dave(y)
