Can you imagine how many tons of pot have been smoked in that thing. I'd love to see somebody take an original bus and restore it to the point that it looks like it just dropped off the school kids. That one is probably too far gone.

I like it. The problem is the roof being gone. That would be hard to fix, but the body looks pretty good.
It ran when parked too.

Must be one of those rare French built Ford buses with the "custome" paint.
But seriously folks I wouldn't step foot in that bus sitting in the woods with the creepy clown paint. Creeps me right out!

I don't know about that. I don't remember seeing that bus when I was at Woodstock! But then again, I was 18, fresh out of high school and on my way to college .... I'll leave the rest of that up to your imagination folks.

I've a buddy who remembers seeing Jimi at Woodstock. Oddly, he doesn't seem to remember much else. Are you sure that you didn't sleep on that bus at Woodstock?

I was at Lowry AFB in Denver getting my radar training when they held Woodstock. That was a long time ago in a land far, far away. Lowry was closed in 94 and is now a residential area.
