Man I would have loved to have been on that run. I tried to talk my better half into one of those about 30 years ago that we looked at at the LA County Fair, but she was a no go.

BTW, Did you come up the Pasadena Freeway thru Pasadena?

Congrats to  you Big Dogs.
Those are a life time of Bussin' memories in one trip. Would have loved to been there. I only get close to a ScenicCruiser in Luke's Yard.
Just a lot of work and dedication to keep that 50+ year old vehicle going.
Love you sharing with us.....

Totally awesome! Where can I find a senic cruiser in reasonable shape to build? I just found a new love! Don't get me wrong, I still love my Setra seated coaches for hauling people! But I totally dig those ol' gals! Wow wiish I coulda been along the path to have seen an heard those beauties go scream'n by! Maybe some day I'll get the time, $ and a shell to start my own conversion. But until then I'll just sit read'n about those who have cool ol' beauties like these, do'n cool things like this! What would be really cool is if they actually had someone take enough notes and pictures to do a story in the magazine! BK  Grin

There's two yahoo groups dedicated to Sceicruisers. Folks on that list often know when one comes around. And, just keep your eyes open. One or two have come up on Ebay in the past year. It only took me a couple months to find mine.

One thing to keep in mind though, if you find a seated cruiser, you may want to put the word out rather than buying it to convert. Seated cruisers are getting very rare, and there are a few folks who are doing full out restorations. Converted and partly converted coaches are not uncommon.
