Bonnici Motors

In 1967 Trans Tours acquired Bonnici Motors. Commencing in 1968 Bonnici Motors acquired eleven Seddon Pennine IV coaches. These had Hawke Cruiser bodies built by Bonnici at their New Lynn depot. The front and rear moulds were provided by Hawke. These were retired when 42 Hawke SuperCruser coaches were supplied in 1974-77.

Between 1972 and 1976 Bonnici Motors Ltd of Auckland purchased 42 Seddon Pennine IV coaches with C44F Hawke SuperCruiser bodies. Numbers 40 and 43 had 6 cylinder engines. The remainder were powered by Perkins 510 V8s.

These had a very distinctive style and are instantly recognisable. In a desperate bid to get some growth back into the economy Bill Birch and Rob Muldoon came up with series of "think big" projects in the early 80's. The merits of these projects were debated in some quarters at the time and history hasn't been kind to the projects. However operators with the contracts to transport the workers definately thought big and grabbed all the Bonnici coaches, which were certainly big.

Bonnici Motors Ltd became Bonnici Coachlines Ltd in 1974. There is no record of ownership of these coaches moving between Bonnici Coachlines Ltd and Midland Coachlines Ltd. By 1981 Midland Coachlines had gained control of Trans Tours and these buses seemed to move quite freely between the Midland and Trans Tours fleets.

Eleven Pennine IV Coaches with Midland bodies. 140-142 were composite coaches. After Bonnici Coachlines were acquired by Midland many of the Bonnici fleet also served with Midland. These mostly remained registered to Bonnici Coachlines so LTSA records do not show the transfer to Midland.
