Birddog's Bus

Post by birddog1148 » Tue Dec 20, 2011 12:52 pm

Joined a while ago but didn't have a bus. :cry: Even stopped by your campout a few years ago on Kellys in my '69Yellow baja bug, but was deer hunting that weekend. And was on the island another year when ya'll had your campout. Well today I bought a bus finally!

Clear title and only $350 :shock:
Been watching just sit for the last year and finnaly caught the people outside last weekend and asked what they wanted to do with it.
Lookin' for another place to put the garbage...

On Camp st just north of the 7-11. Been watching it sit there for almost a year and caught the residents outside this past weekend. The grandpa seemed to want it gone and the kid/owner didnt seem to have any wrenching skills. Gotta get it over to my shop or the house so I can start playing with it. I need to replace the cork in the carb with a dime and JB weld :mrgreen:

And I need to get a pic of it next to the Baja 8-)

Nice score , this was mine when I was 16 . The poptop on that model is nice and roomy . Looks like a pretty solid start for you .

Have you tried to work a deal for the green and white split in your area yet....you know the one ;)

Raised buses are what all the cool kids are doing today. I'm putting big tires on my next project.
