I'll admit to blatantly stealing his hood scoop idea. It's really reduced the amount of heat coming through my firewall.

But in the last three years unfortunately the bus has only served purpose has a guest house. With my work roles that have changed, I have lately felt like it may be time to find a new home for it. I will post it up in the classifieds, but this posting really explains it all. The only thing that has really changed is the front clip has faded color. The bus body still has gloss, but has been seeing some paint chipping and showing some of the yellow once again. I really do hate to see it go but I feel like it may be time to let someone else enjoy the experience. I am not sure what it is worth and will probably never see what I have put into it. But I am going to ask $15,000 and see what interest there is in it. Thanks to everyone that has offered input to the build.
Nate
Great build thread Nate. Congratulations on some great stories and memories. Enjoyed every damn word and pictures. At my age I'm looking at getting about to he same amount of time in our build. Would have loved to sit down and have coffee or a beer or two and just visit.

Thanks for all the great comments!

Phatman I知 always up for good conversation especially over a beer or two. 😊

I put together a youtube video yesterday. This is starting it up for the first time this year, and did a walk around and in. I am not a person that likes to be in front of a camera, still or video. But I thought others might like to see it. The bus has always amazed me on how quick it starts. Yesterday was no different.


Thanks everyone for looking.

Thanks for the video Nate. I wouldn't think you would have any problem selling it. It's hard to part with something you put your blood, sweat and tears into. I'm 65 and I'm hoping to get ten years out of mine. I was trying desperately to finish by the end of May. Not quite there. I'm shooting for August now. Good luck to you Nate!!
