Stretching back to his early twenties as a tour bus driver in the Canadian Rockies, Jeff has been a bus fan for some thirty years,

not only collecting diecast models from around the world but starting Iconic Replicas in 2015 and growing the business as the Chief of 

Innovation & Design to become the largest manufacturer of diecast model buses in the world. 

When the opportunity arose to purchase an actual bus out of a scrapyard in December 2020, Jeff jumped at the opportunity to refurbish it and 

finally, get behind the wheel of his own bus to see where his dream of exploring the backroads of the USA with his wife Lisa would take them.   

“The thing with building out a bus is you never really finish – it’s always a work in progress. But every now and then, you step back, look your bus over 

and think… I did that!”  And so, from Junk Yard Dog to Jeff & Lisa’s gleaming Pride of the Highway, the IconiCruiser with its new lease on life has only just 

begun what promises to be an interesting journey down the nation’s highways and byways.
