The 58 is painted and being assembled as fast as I can find the time. I gotta sell it as soon as it's finished so I'm trying to get hot on it. Besides, it's taking up my garage space for my wife's double cab and she wants it gone.

That makes sense good enough reason right there. I would gladly sell one a bus to be able to get a barndoor. I've been following that bus ever since Josh got it. Secretly I've wanted it, but then again doesn't every bus guy with no money lol.

I am planning on driving to the NDBS for sure. That will be a nice first show. Hopefully the other East Coast Barndoor guys will be there also.

I believe 2 of the "East Coast Barndoor guys" are putting the show on. :wink:

Sounds like quite a trip. Now try it again with a 25-horse :wink:

Congrats on the bus. Definitely a good score. I can only imagine how cold the trip was. :lol:

Well, just to give you an idea, my right big toe is still numb. :cry:

Got to go see it last night! Yes, it is as sweet as it looks.

Great car and trip!! Although I think I might have you beat on the crazy trip. I'll post up a link to the story soon. Too bad you didn't stop and take a few pics along the way

followed this thread since first day... what an amazing story.

I got my first bus (sorry a 70 camper...) a 4th december and I also made a 900km trip with no heating in the bus... It was fun ;)

Very nice bus and adventure...

Awesome story. Hilarious too. I was laughing my ass off. You're a die hard but I agree, I'd take a trip like that any time!! Congratulations.

Nice score vinny.

I would have rode shotgun. all ya gotta do is call a nugga.

I drove the monster up to philly last july. took me 18 hours. drove it straight only had minor vapor lock fuel line issues. no frozen toes though.

BulletBus Thu Jan 20, 2011 6:17 pm

Yeah man, I actually almost called you, but I didn't know I was doing this until the last minute. Your ticket would've cost me a fortune. You go'n to Daytona in Feb for NDBS?
