Two weeks ago my brother called to tell me he spotted this bus on I-44 heading east out of Tulsa.  

Tom McNally wrote me to say:

"082 now belongs to Tony Allen of San Diego. coincidentally, he contacted me early last week to say he would be stopping by here on his way to his folks house in Indy. They do not know about the bus, so it will be a surprise. A bunch of us got a chance to drive 082 back in May for "Scenicruise 2011" in Arizona. Tony also owns 468"

This bus used to belong to Frank Mooney of CA. and had been up for sale for a little while.  Here are some inside pics of this same bus that were posted when it was for sale

Nice, but I kind of knew that to begin with.  When they are pristine and neat as a pin on the outside, you just naturally figure they are going to be sweet looking on the inside.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Clifford, you are right about it being stolen.  Frank Monney told me the story, and it is quite a story, I just cannot remember the details!  He bought it from the folks that it was stolen from as I remember.  My conversation with Frank was one of the nicest I have had with any bus nut!

I'll let Tony know that he was spotted again in OKC. He'll get a kick out of that. When he was here in Peoria, I told him that bus is hard to hide ! Bill Dumas owned the bus when it was stolen. He recovered it, and sold it to Frank Mooney. Then Tony bought it from Frank.

I believe Bill Dumas "sold" the bus to someone on credit, and they never made good on any payments. They took off with it for about two years maybe. Way too trusting move for the world today. I got the chance to drive it about 700+ miles back in May from San Diego to AZ. Nice Scenic.

If you know of the whereabouts of a PD4501 Scenicruiser - I would like to add the serial number to my registry of surviving Scenics.  www.tomsgarageonline.com
