    Sure would like to know where is wonderful bus is now. Always wonder what became of it.

    • David Hume

      Hi Mark, we bought it from Al Scott late last year (Oct, ’18) and have moved it to Ellensburg, WA where we are continuing the work Al (and Lloyd Scott) put into it.

      So far we’ve cleaned up the interior, and are working on replacing the wood floors, wiring, and other mechanicals that have deteriorated having been exposed to the elements. We hope to have it running by June, and then will finish up the exterior chassis work before starting to convert the interior to a livable RV.

      Stay tuned!

    Thanks for the update David, hope to hear more in the future. Looks like you have a great start there the bus has great bones and the Scotts do good work. Hope to see her on the road one day. Hopefully one I’ll get one and be out there as well. If not a cruiser maybe a crown coach. All the best.
