My Son Nick, has a friend in Alabama who has a Scenicruiser.  When they both started getting into buses they both wanted a Scenicruiser, Rob was the first to get one and Nick was able to get this one about a year or two after Rob got his.  They both jointly own an MC 5 that they have been working on for about 4 years now.  The videos below show their adventure in picking the Scenicruiser up in Arkansas and driving it to Alabama.

Wish I had taken videos of my Scenicruiser & Scenicruiser part retrieval trips.

At least I have pictures & friends that were there who won't let me forget some of the more forgetable moments.  Grin  Shocked  Roll Eyes

Poor old Cruiser sure looks tired Cry
I can remember these old girls when they were in Greyhound service with the 2 -4/71's.
Where has the time gone? Huh
I was a very young 12 year old kid in 1954 and my dad was driving for Greyhound back then so a lot of his trips were Scenicruiser service and it was a real neat deal to ride on the Scenicruisers with my dad behind the wheel.
Like I say thanks for the memories folks. Grin

Scenics are so rare and iconic they are very worthy of restoration. You have a real treasure. Love the videos.

Last summer we were heading back to Arizona from California and went through Ghila Bend, Arizona and there are three Scenicrusiers for sale at a used car and truck lot. They were closed on Sunday so we could not get in to check them out more closely. Right by the road so you can't miss them.

Looks like the adventure begins.  Loved the video.  Keep em coming.  I could feel the excitement of getting the old girl back on the road again.
