Oldtimers


No, not a taxi: this is one of the first buses here, in Catalunya. With his fellow old timers. We came across them last Saturday, there was some kind of old bus rally. A few more of them…

 This one be came from Paris…

 Not only in London…

 And they came from Belgium.

That’s our world on Tuesday! Click right here to see more!

  6. The old buses that were running when I was a child never looked this good. A great find.

  9. Are they pretending or do they still use them on road from time to time? Pity they have gone as they were so iconic of a certain age. Wonder what the double decker is doing amongst this lot.

  10. The first bus looks quite small and elegant. The second one has a strange looking hood to it!

  13. Amazing! Lucky you to have seen them oldies 🙂 Here in Cambodia, there are buses but they ply mostly provincial routes. And they're not new ones, they're second (third, fourth, etc.) hand buses imported from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, to name a few.

  14. Wow, they are beautiful (and small). Glad some people were wise enough to hang on to these buses.
