  • Hi. I used to own your AEC Renown. I got it from a firm in Milton Keynes who were using it on school kid runs. I took the seats out and fitted it out with pallet wood and bits of 2x4. Lived in it in the woods for a year or two then sold it on and got a VAL 14 cos we were going to get evicted and I reckoned the coach would be easier to park up. That was all many years ago ( 1980 - 83 ? ) I haven't any pictures of her at all and was mighty pleased to see her blue and yellow front on Traveller Homes. Have you got any more pics, esp of the interior. I remember taking away the perspex light covers to reveal those beams and the upstairs floor boards. I hope you got the chance to drive her cos it was lovely. Took her to Stonehenge, Glasto, and a couple of tree fairs. Cheers, Puck
  • Woop woop woop! Howdy groover!
  • i love cobs, hes beautiful, my mum in her younger days had a new forest pony, broke him in herself, unfortunately she couldnt afford to keep him & had to sell him on, she was heart broken, ive never owned my own horse, never been able to afford it & now i dont think i would have the time, im going to do some volunteer work with the riding school where i have my lessons, so im still with horses but dont have the full responsibility, i still like going camping, festivals, gigs & my nearly 7 year old to look after so need time to do different things.
    My job is only 2 days a week but its knackering me out! & its very tedious but its a start, winding ivy up 6 foot trellises, believe it or not its quite phisical & mind numbingly boring...lol
    so ive havnt been to any gatherings or festives, i thought i would wait till ive got a small campavan if i can ever afford one, prob not until next year, i like camping just fed up with tents...lol
  • And another thing......what gets me is under my user name it still says 'Noobie' ... been here for a year or two....surely i am not still a ;Noobie' anymore .....am I.....?
  • AT LAST..... blue skies and a BIG Yellow thing in the sky ...wonder what it is....!

    Hi, having just uploaded a photo of a red VAM14 FDP163D onto my website I then found your old photos of it here .. plus some of your other old rigs etc .. would it be ok to add your decker & VAL14 as well to my site ? If you've larger sized images than on here I'd appreciate copies as it saves fuzzy enlargements !
