Where's "Brill-o?"
« on: April 01, 2008, 06:16:50 PM »

Anyone have any idea what's up with Brill-o?  He was posting about restoring a Brill, and sorta disappeared.   He had the bus running.  Curious.

I spoke with Brillo (aka Barry) last October/November ish time frame.  He still has the Brill and one or two other buses.  He has had a couple of surgeries that preclude him typing very well and (at that time ) he still occasionally checked the board.

If I can find his phone number I will give him a call and see what he is up to and let him know the bus community has not forgotten him.

Thanks.   Maybe he could get his spousal component to take dictation?   ;)
Barry needs one of the voice translators. 
Hope he's doing allright.

Defiantly one of the more interesting restoration/conversions that was going on.

I was following that one closely too.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
