In the late 1980s, when he first took an interest in the buses he was travelling on, Kenny Barclay wouldn't have imagined in his wildest dreams that he would ever own one. Now he has four. Purchasing a Leyland Leopard from 1980 in May 2007, three more buses of varying shapes and sizes followed over the next two years and he has lovingly restored each of them.
Here, Kenny Barclay gives a fascinating insight into this restoration process. A history of each bus, including technical specifications, is included alongside a selection of images of each vehicle in its heyday. This is followed by a fully illustrated account of each of the restoration projects, as well as photographs of the buses once restored to their former glory.
Packed with fascinating photography, Restoring a Bus is perfect both for those looking to enter the preservation scene and those who simply admire vintage vehicles.
Kenny Barclay is a lifelong transport enthusiast who begun to amass a significant collection of transport photographs during the 1980s and 1990s. Kenny now lives with his partner in the Highlands of Scotland and still employed within the railway industry as an operations manager. Outside of work Kenny has a collection of four vintage buses which have been restored as they would have looked in the 1980s.
