Hey guys, I've always liked seeing those photos of people pulling busses right as they've been found, like sitting in a barn or behind a tree, out in a field, etc. I'm not sure if some one else has already done this in the bay window section, but i'll give it a try. Here are some of my busses I've bought-
1976 deluxe westy straight from the barn-found, restored, sold

Sat in a field in Montana next to a barn for a few years before I bought it. Decent shape overall to start. SN# 1121... very early in the '72 year production. CB #76 stamped on the pancake! An old, tired dawg. The best kind. Cool

Out and about more now after two years of love and some spare change. Will be fully restored by end of summer 2012 I hope... just in time to disappear into the mountains when the apocalypse hits. Laughing

Cool thread.



Here's where we found her, under a tree. She had been sitting for 5 years. Took this photo right after we shook hands with PO.

Found these busses while camping/fishing in Northern Ontario in Temagami at the Matabichuan Lodge (actually, very rustic fishing cabins).They are quite a ways back in the bush were well used/abused work trucks.

p.s.
I have no desire what-so-ever to save these guys. Too far gone and too far away. I did not even take a souvenir. It would have felt like taking a dead guys lighter.

It would probably be best to just let them rust in peace!
