    Thats' impressive.. Better than the boring yellow buses we have here... Talented airbrushers (whoever the artist was)..

    Looks good... Not airbrushed though, printed self adhesive vinyl is used for these vehicle wraps.

    Very rare indeed to see proper airbrushing now. Too expensive.

    Now I like that one GD.

    I think Lindylou posted one up with the cathedrals and Beatles on it. I've got one too of it but on a disc in work.

    after taking my camera everywhere I finally got the X2 on Knowsley Rd today.

    granted they're not great pix, but I had to put my shopping down quick and take the photos.

    I saw that the other day too!

    Couldn't believe the Champions bus had been used for the Preston route...I would be a little be-mused seeing as you can't look out of the windows!

    the National football Museum is at Preston (and jolly good it is too) so maybe that's why they used that bus to link Lpool and Preston.

    you're right about not being able to see out the windows properly, it's awful. there's a bus covered in a B+Q ad too which is just as bad. makes your eyes go funny.

    I'll post this here, from the Kensington thread. I haven't seen this bus around for a while. It contains an old view of Kensington Fields community centre, Hall Lane. I'll get a wider view, if I see it again.

    B&Q bus. I think this was the Number 53, bottom of Brownlow Hill.

    cheers Marky, that's another off my list . been trying to get that and the City Talk bus.
    I've been on that B&Q bus (without a camera-grrr), it's horrible not being able to see out properly.

    Byrom Street. In the past I've also seen a bus with a different car, and also a large training-shoe.

    I've been after that for ages. it passed me in Sir Thomas St today, the ad is only on 1 side of the bus and I saw it come around the corner but I couldn't get over the side of the road quick enough to get a pic of it.

    No chance of this one escaping me though as it was static in Williamson Sq today. My hubby couldn't get in the queue for a free pot quick enough!
