Hey guys I'm not sure if anyone saw last nights episode of ricks restoration. THey were driving on route 66 in AZ. And they pulled into an auto salvage yard and they had a bus sitting on the roof of the place. I was able to get the name of the location it's Dans auto salvage. I called the place today and the guy said its a 65 standard bus. And owner has had a few interested buyers but he turns them down. So I guess that bus is going to rust away. If u look for the location on google maps. And go on street view your able to see the yellow bus from the street.

Yes, it's highly visible from the freeway.

That roof will cave in long before any rust comes along.
