• EVENT: Taybus’ very first rally with Volvo Ailsa HSR46X at Scottish Vintage Bus Museum’s first Open Weekend Lathalmond September 1995

Taybus Vintage Vehicle Society: Events

A number of events take place each year, usually from May until October. Taybus always tries to attend as many popular local events as possible and vary the vehicles we take there but we can never give any firm guarantees. In addition some local event organisers may prefer to control who they will allow to attend their events in which case the fact we can't attend is totally outwith our control.

Almost all of our members work full time and so they are generally only able to spare a maximum of one day a week to work on our vehicles. This means repairs that would generally only take a few days would take us a few weeks instead. It can also be quite difficult for us to track down the necessary spares or find someone with the necessary skills to work on our vehicles.

In addition we also need to be able to pay to insure, tax and MOT (where necessary) all of our vehicles which again can be quite expensive.
