I believe there are two of these located just a few miles from me...in various stages of restoration..it's been several years since I saw them.

I read an article on the GM Futurliner a few years ago. What I remember best was a former driver commenting that it was terrifying driving up to a low underpass.

If anyone is interested, I know where there is a GMC Futureliner for sale. It requires restoration and can be bought for $600,000.00
You can find it listed in "Wheels of Time", the online magazine of the Anrique Truck Historical Society. Hopefully this does not get a bidding war going amongst WOGers

I toured one of these in California at Bus Conversion Rally. It was made up as a traveling bar for entertainment. I also bought the T-Shirt. so I guess I can say, "Been There, Done that, Got the T-Shirt"

One of those busses 1950 I think, sold at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale a few years ago and brought the most $$$ for the whole auction.
When the buyer left with it, a news helicopter followed the guy out of town.
What a sight to see on the freeways of Arizona.
I also remember something about Jeff Miller being involved with a restoration project in Michigan.

That's interesting, the Balloon Fiesta folks wouldn't allow a campfire,so I am somewhat out of practice.
We would love to join everyone there.
Maybe another time.
Thanks for the offer.
