Bill Moore's legacy


As you all know, the passing of Bill Moore has left a real void in the international community of Australian Country Buggy enthusiasts. There have recently been a number of people concerned over Billís legacy and the future of Billís historical collection of CB related information, documents etc. In regards to this, Stephen Muller (Billís best mate and fellow CB enthusiast) has been given the role of custodian and accordingly is now in possession of Billís collection including his beloved Country Buggy. As Iím sure you can all appreciate this sizeable collection will take some time to go through, however rest assured that itís in good hands and will be preserved for generations to come.

In regards to the Australian Country Buggy Register, Bill made the decision to move that to volksculture.com where he could easily maintain it and link individual vehicles via KO number to associated albums of photos. Currently this is being maintained by Ashley Roan (co-founder of Volks Culture along with Bill and Stephen Muller).

Please refer any further questions in regards to Bills historical collection and CB related information directly to Stephen Muller at info@volksmuller.com.au and information submissions for the Australian Country Buggy register to Ashley Roan at ashley@page2.com.au

The Australian Country Buggy Register can be found here: http://www.volksculture.com/group/country-buggy-register/page/country-buggy-register

All the best

Ash

Good News!


Ash,
Thank you very much for your update.
Sounds like Bill's legacy is being well cared for.
Great to know.

Long live the VW Australian County Buggy!
Let none of us forget Country Buggy Bill and his labor of love.

Eurkea!


I just noted this Ash authored thread has been deemed worthy of a "pinned" thread status and as such has assumed a permanent place at (or near the top) of the Country Buggy main forum page. This assures the post and included important info won't get lost down the line in future topic posts. It will be front and center for all to be aware of and be easily accessible for future reference.

Outstanding decision by whoever is responsible.
A thankful tip of the hat to the responsible party.....an unknown administrator, no doubt...:-)
Kudos, Sir......

Mr. Moore might be blushing a bit if he were still with us.
I also think he would be thrilled and honored to know a mecahnism is in place for his work to grow.

Cheers!

Regards,
Steve
