If only the person who did that knew what they did!

I really like those high-roof WWs! Maybe one day I'll add one to the collection! Yikes!

If it looks like a WW, and quacks like a WW, it's probably a WW! Get a pic of the M-plate for sure.

We have to have that verification to let you in the secret society. Laughing

M-Code plate is located behind the drivers seat on the short metal wall.
Small aluminum plate with several rows of numbers.
Please submit a picture of this plate to confirm it is a Wild Westerner.
By the looks of it yes you do.

To join the club you will need to submit a picture of the M-Code Plate for verification.
Then you will be subject to hazing from notchboy, if you survive then you shall become the newest member of de club.

Thank you!
The story behind finding this bus and what I had to do to get it is straight out of the ex files.
Appreciate everyone's help!!!
Is their a way of finding out how many WW where made into high tops or how many are left?

Another mystery to solve! Definitely remember if I ever see a bus in this color combo, learn something new everyday. Damn Westerners, and all their weird loves of neon! Laughing
