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

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 Wink

Very nice bus and adventure...

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?
