So I get a phone call from Linda aboot a Barndoor Panel sitting somewhere in Southern Euskalifornia?? Everyone was sitting tight waiting for the green light. Come this past Saturday Linda gets the go and we all met up at the location, gave the bus a serious inspection, rolled it on top of the trailer and off to the North Shore of Cambodia it went.

Needless to say, this bus is pretty solid and very dry. It was last registered in So Cali back in 1973, so with this said, this bus has been living in our dry climate for over 35 years! JODER! And I don't have to tell none of you that it rarely rains and NEVER snows here. So very mininal rust. If anything, there is minor blistering and very light surface rust. In my opinion, this is a perfect candidate for a restoration! It doesn't get better then this. The cargo floors are AMAZING!! All the glass, with the exception of the front windshields, are the large SEKURIT and original to the bus. This thing even has the correct driver's and passenger's outer door handles. It is missing some of parts, but worth the effort of locating them and doing some justice to this bus.

This just goes to show everyone they are still out there!!?? Just got to keep your eyes peeled or get lucky. Over all we, The BDM, were stoked on this find and lucky we got our hands on it. Stay tuned for updates, cuz you know Linda is all over this like a $2 Trick with clean hands. OKAY Wink
