As promised the second installment of the Enfield Pageant. The biggest attraction at the show just has to be the USA ‘ iconic Greyhound bus. The bus is being restored but is in pretty good condition. Compared to the UK bus the size and use is evident. The UK’s Routemaster was designed for short trips between stops, sometimes just a few hundred yards apart, the open back was to allow people to jump on and off. That idea was soon frowned upon by the health and safety brigade, but you might still see one in London on a good day. The Greyhound on the other hand was an interstate cruiser with comfort in mind. We just couldn’t believe the size of the bus, it dwarfed our double-decker. Two very different vehicles with very different needs. We took a pic of the spec for the Greyhound bus that was in the window as it made interesting reading. Are these still used in USA?
Some European Classic cars:
More American classics here but we were surprised by the “History Chanel” car. We were expecting a nice paint job only to find it was sticky foil covered!
Perhaps one of the most famous posters ever in the UK during the times of the war:
We are back to work again and continuing our projects. The weather is not helping things at the moment as we don’t want to put the customers cars in the rain while we move things around. That can slow things up a little to say the least.
Our key hooks have been selling well and we even gave a few away over the weekend to customers who made an order with us.
If you wish to get your hands on these great for Fathers Day gifts give us a call and we will see what we can do for you. We are working on some other branded items which we hope to have very soon and exclusive to Mustang Maniac. We will post these as soon as we know we have them in stock. Unlike some stockists we try to hold everything in stock so we can deliver as soon as the postal service can get to you.
