From An Old Wreck To One Of The Most Beautifully Restored Bedford Housebuses You'll Ever Have The Pleasure Of Seeing...
Their work of art has been a work in progress since they bought the bus as little more than a wreck around thirty three years ago from Auckland's North Shore Ferries.
I caught up with them at Northland's Uretiti campground where they'd stopped for a few days while heading further north.
What really got my attention was the attention to detail, the riveting rivets all carefully positioned using a hand riveter. The hand-made rear bumper, a work of art that faithfully follows the curve of the bus, the beautifully crafted wooden window frames, the curved ply on the ceiling
and walls, the immaculate paint job.
Congratulations Trillian and Kerry.
Emmylou is a delight to the senses...
