I know the logos are fake, does that help?

Oh well ... I'm not really into lowered buses, but the period hot rod look of this one quite appeals to me.

You must see the inside of the bus.It`s covered with old porsche posters and they are aged also.This van was in the Volksworld magazine a couple months ago.

If you want.i could scan the article.

Is that the one that was in Volksworld a few months ago that was doused with saltwater to add patina to the paint job?

its hard to see but this was a snap-on tools bus. i dont think it was done in the 60s however. i do know the bus has been in this condition for at least 20 years which is how long it sat in a ditch here in colorad and how long kids/people/retards threw big rocks at it. look down the long wall and on the upper nose to see some of the letters. bummer.

ms priss, it is an original philly bus. evergreen (EV) and howard (HO), i think both #s are west philly. i doubt the bus has ever been out of the city. it has 43,000 miles on it.

That's so cool, Uzi! (Granny's # began with HO4. Strange 30+ years later I can still remember it.)

I like that your bus says "EV HO". Could that be a clue about our fearless leader??
