What happens to a bus when it reaches the end of its life? It is a simple question and most people would assume that the bus would end up in a scrapyard, broken up for its valuable scrap metal content, but many buses have had long and fruitful lives after their retirement from passenger duties. Douglas MacDonald looks at the changing bus scene in Scotland since the 1930s and the myriad of different uses buses have undertaken. They have been used as polling booths, circus vehicles, recovery trucks, car transporters, mobile canteens, mobile homes and many other uses. Just a flick inside the covers will see some unusual conversions and uses. The book is also written in the authors inimitable and humorous style.
