Its a 1950 chevy don't even know the coachwork just love the curvey aristreamed rear end with 50 truck front end I think it looks really cool
You, sir, are doing what my life's dream is. Some people dream of a 1968 Mustang....others of a Model T....some people want a slammed S-10.....I want a 1940's or 1950's vintage Wayne or Superior coach to play with. I dream of picking up one on a 1.5 ton frame....I'd modernize and modify it with a Chevy 14bolt dually rear and 2wd 1 ton chevy coil style front suspension....a big block....air suspension on every corner...and plenty of chrome while still holding on to that nostalgia (8 foot sidepipes?). But...and this is a big but....I would never THINK of changing the body other than perhaps some very short side skirts to make it look that much lower. Did I mention I'm actually a 4wd guy so ground clearance is USUALLY what I'm looking for?

As for the demographic...I think you're pretty right on with it. I guess I'm an exception as I'm only 22 and certainly not married, but hey...I wanted to get the toys BEFORE a ring. My understanding is it's just easier that way.

Re: special message for all skoolie.net members

I really want a set big slicks under the rear slammed in the front a set of zoomies stickin out just in front of the slicks
I have been involved in scca race car building for years and build race cars out of glass so I am dreaming about remaking the bus from windshield back restyling it as I go deleting windows adding rv doors and sloping the rear even more adding caddy bullet taillights ect.
but for now I just need to get it rolling its been dormant for years. Dreams are also more plentiful than dollars
thanks for accepting me into the community. just really think this thing is cool. cptn did you get your wipper lose yet try heat

My name is Andrew. Wayne is the manufacturer of my bus' coachwork.

You and I seem to have mighty similar ideas as to what an old bus should look like.
