S'cool bus

This is neat. Although I think it needs someting better on the front rim, it's still cool to see it back on the road. So many of those just got scrapped.

needs paint



I am tired of looking at rolling junk





When we were kids we had cars with rust & holes. We dreamt of nice paint, shiny matching wheels and a nice clean interior.






These days the lazy untalented crowd put crap on the road. I hate the rat junkpile cars. Have some dam pride in what you build

Exactly! That 32? bus could be the sweetest way to cruise and camp at a long distance show. Do up the insides in period woodwork and antique style couches, etc.

....and paint the thing

I agree with he rusted junk and no talent comment. If I want to see this kind of stuff I go to the junkyard where the show for that style is permanently on display . Living art if you like that always gets worse.

Man, that bus is awesome. No, it ain't a show vehicle- but it's rarely seen- and it's on the road again

Maybe it's a work-in-progress, and will be pretty one day. You can't blame 'em for taking it to the show, though. I'd take it out in all it's rustic glory too- Sitting in a shop until it's completely finished, when you could be driving it, is a waste of an opportunity to enjoy your ride, if you ask me.
I don't think it defines someone's talent, just because it's rusty.

One man see's a rust bucket as a future show car- another may see it as good enough, drive it
