That might be the one.  I didn't know that. Seems like somebody would take better care of it if not sell it to someone who could restore it.

"...customized by George Barris"

Cool. Maybe Elvis heard that Barris had built the Munster Koach, and thought that meant he was a bus guy.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

 There was an eagle on ebay quite a while back, the seller was another Elvis  and the bus was REALLY decked out in the Elvis motif! Smiley

Marc, I was reading this thread to the boss.You need to know she needs to be around someone for a while to form an opinion about them. But being the Elvis fan she is she said in short order I like that guy. To show you how big a fan she is after Branson last year  everyone went to Carthage for another rally we went to Memphis. Guess who wears the pants in this family.

LOL!!! I know that guy!  He called me last week to try and sell me that bus, and yes... I make his jumpsuits.  His name is Rick.  I actually made 4 of the jumpsuits pictured.  How funny.
