Bring back PMC, They were the days when buses were built to last. Top quality workmanship came out of the Adelaide Site.

The photo of the Single axle of the Volvo B10M with Apollo body looks like the Ex Port Augusta Bus Service's unit.
Can anyone confirm this unit.

This factory when built was the most modern in the country and the first from memory to use a "production line" set up, it is still a very modern workshop for its age.
