WOW! Fabulous Restore Job on RLH 69

The bus we're hoping to get is a Regent Low Height... they only ever made seventy-six of this model... our's is the third one made so RLH 3. If you're REALLY interested in our bus, click here.

Now, the reason I bring this up is I do like to keep track of the other "still-in-one-piece" Regent Low Heights... and even recently I "blogged" about RLH 53, 69, and 71 which were, until very recently, in a field in Murrieta, California... but had been bought by someone in Oregon.

Below are the three being shipped via flat-beds to their new home...

Well, in my entry (which you can read here,) I stated my hopes for a good new home for the three...

Yesterday, I was catching up at the RLH Information Centre (without who's help, these images and the blog would be VERY different and not very good...) and noticed that Mr. Pring, the webmaster, had put a NEW photo of RLH 69 online!

Here's the "before" image in the field in California...

In California...

...and the NEW picture which shows her being readied for an Independence Day parade...


...four months after being moved to her new home.


My congratulations to the new owners on a SPECTACULAR restoration job! The bus looks PHENOMENAL!

Thank you also for preserving these fine vehicles which mean so much to me and my family... I know the new owners didn't have us in mind when they undertook the job, but it still means a lot to us!


The standard last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.


Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

If you or someone you know might be interested, there's our tiny banner site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and a PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, a Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff!
(...and who doesn't need some shtuff!)

Please help us make this dream a reality and save a piece of history!

We thank you for your support!

Please Note: We are also hoping for help from a public relations/marketing standpoint... If you might be able to assist OR know someone who might be willing to, please click here and read this entry...

Whoa. That's an AWESOME restoration job!! That bus is GAWGEEUS. Just.. stunning. :)

I have to admit - you've given me a new appreciation for doubledeckers. Before I was like, "Yeah.. cool... but .. meh." Now I'm all like "Yeah.. cool!" :D

Hey Trish... There is an aesthetic quality about the older buses... and yeah, I pretty much rope EVERYONE into it... and despite what I've HEARD (Sue talks AS DOES ROBIN,) despite a SEEMING objection to them, Robin "scopes" them too... in fact, ask her about the last trip to a coffee shop with her friend Tere!

Awesome. I've just become "ONIT" LOL

You'll do anything for ratings. ;)

Hey! That's a good idea!

ONIT... Not necessarily for ratings... or for cash... but there's a TT idea, eh? Thirteen Things I Will NEVER Do! Oddly enough, my #1 has been and will stay, "I will never hoax, sell-out, or otherwise knowingly do anything to bring disrepute to my study." I know, not bringing the funny on that one, but it's true!

ONIT... I dunno... that would be the thing. I harken back to Krusty the Klown once pleading his case with Bart about endorsing a dangerous product by saying, "Oh-ho-ho-ho! C'mon now, they backed a dump-truck full of money up to my door! How could I refuse?"
