Hi Digger,

the Flxible is at HB Industries shop in El Cajon, California. I'm due an update so I'll post the pictures on here when I get them.

Trona and El Cajon may well be in the same State - but they are 250 miles apart!

I'm just trying to locate one close enough in Southern California to come and be in a parade. I've seen photos of Clipper motorhome conversions that claim lineage to the Trona Stage Line, but I haven't been able to find a location or contact.

I have two Flxibles for sale at the moment on my facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/groups/5742...4246669324800/

Both are located at HB Industries in Southern California. Contact Gerry at HB Industries and he might be able to tell you if they are available for a parade or he might know of others - [email protected]

Thanks. I just spoke with Gerry. One of the Flxibles I was trying to track down that was an original Trona Stage bus, was owned by Bob Rowsell, the late owner of HB industries. He said he would talk to the family to see if they were interested. He said he would also check with other Flxible owners to see if they might be interested.

Just got some updated images of my restoration. The main carcase work has now been complete and the bed frame for the rear bedroom is in.

Seats are in and the first coat of paint is on. The blue will be broken up with other detailing.

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated.

I've got three shows booked to take the Flxible to once it gets over to the UK:

RAF Burtonwood 13th, 14th September - http://www.rafburtonwoodbase.org/

Classic car show Event City 21st, 22nd September - http://www.eventcity.co.uk/whats-on/...ssic-car-show/

Pre '50's AAC Rally of Giants 27th July Blenheim Palace - http://www.pre50aac.com/rog.html

Although the 27th July might be a little too close so might not make it.

I'll post on here as soon as I have the bus over here and definite dates for attendance.
