I think it's great too. Don't like all the small windows in the sides, but the bodywork on the roof is amazing. I'd like to see the insides as well - just why is it so high at the back?

To quote Jessica Simpson on the commercial wearing the Daisy Dukes (yowza)!

Well, my contact information for Larry is a couple of years old and the email and phone numbers are no longer correct. It appears that he no longer lives in Lancaster, NH

He had sent me a picture of the bus before it was painted and it looked like super workmanship.  I would love to know if he got the Series 60 installed.

If anyone makes contact with Larry, will you have him contact me at:

jim at rvsafetysystems *dot* com.

Thanks

Chaz!!!

Have you lost your mind?  You sound like some kinda nut (a busnut maybe) ;D

Add this post to the list of "You might be a busnut if..."

And, I'm sorry, I like the look of a good bus as much as the next guy, but... :-*

I will say this. He was thinking  way ouside the box when he built her.

It is definatley unique.

I wonder how long it took him to finish.

Sure would be nice to get ahold of him as others have suggested, and have him tell the story.

I guess I have been bitten pretty bad, huh. Oh well.........  ;)

I just love creativity. I think it is great when people are unique. Now, don't get me wrong, I've seen some pretty off the wall stuff in my day, but then I've also had the pleasure of seeing some aweful cool stuff too! Either way, I can always appreciate the effort.

By the way, Jessica would be fantastic if there was something a little more understandable at the top of that great looking staircase!!

Time to go look at Xmas lights................

Sheesh. And you call yourselves busnuts.

More exterior - http://home.comcast.net/~thuxton/bigbus.htm

Interior - http://www.newyorkdailyphoto.com/images/TwelveTribes3.jpg

The tour - http://www.merrymakerscaravan.org/

I have even more interiors on my hard disk that I've had for a long time but I don't know where they originally came from so I better not post them.
