The first of four pictures of former Reading and McLennans AEC Regent CRD253.
Ian purchased this bus in 1968 for £200 from McLennan's, a few miles north of Perth, and drove it to Istanbul and back for a holiday with some student friends.
It was sold to a guy in Belgium later that year who decked it out as a Mardi Gras parade float as a nightclub “Nachtbar en Lunbus” and won first prize. It was visible for a few years off to the north side of the old Ostend-Brussels motorway.
