The new Ventura group livery was evident in this sunny afternoon shot of 854 (9049AO) at the 2012 Sandown Truck & Bus Show. Grenda was already eliminating the variety of liveries amongst its subsidiaries whilst retaining their fleetnames. The Ventura fleet identification is confined to the depot name situated above the windows at the rear, in this case Lilydale is just visible, but clear in the larger image revealed by clicking on the picture.

A view of the Volvo B7RLE earlier in the day when rain was still blighting the event. The bus was new in June that year.

The Invicta display at Sandown included the vintage Croydon Bus Service Ford, and three Volgren bodied buses of varying vintage. A high floor Dennis Dart and Scania and the new Ventura branded Volvo B7RLE.

Out of Dandenong depot Volvo 693 (9179AO) is seen on a prestige charter outside the Arts Centre in Melbourne in November 2012. Look closely and you will see that all the windows have been blacked out with bin liner bags! Accompanying the B7RLE is another Volvo/Volgren combination from Dandenong depot, Grenda branded coach 288, yet to receive any hint of Ventura logos. The charter was linked to the Melbourne Cup Parade along Swanston Street which severed the tram link at the Arts Precinct. Vehicles and horses in the parade terminated opposite.

At Southlands the previous month was a true Ventura vehicle, 1001 (9106AO) out of Oakleigh depot and about to head across the suburbs to Box Hill on the 767. This bus however is a Scania K280UB.
