Even Russians know about Crowns now

At our annual Crown get-together on Memorial Day weekend we were filmed by the Voice of America for a short show about crazy American busnuts who have nothing better to do with their time than to play with old buses: https://www.golos-ameriki.ru/a/california-drivers-hobby/3920087.html All the usual suspects are depicted, including me (no prizes for guessing who I am) and my bus (it's the handsome one with chiseled good looks and an oh-so-masculine face, just like me). So now some poor long-suffering Russian in the wilds of Siberia knows about busnuts like us - I guess that's good for international détente and bonhomie?

That's cool. I'm not surprised. Our buses are the raddest in the world, imo. ANd Crowns would be chief among them.
