I don't see them acknowledging The Partridge Family as pioneers in their field. Major oversight.

It's like Burning Man....... on a bus!

You know, like how Speed was like Die Hard on a bus? Nevermind.

There's a local food truck that decided to convert a 1950s era Greyhound bus into a food bus, and the result is pretty sweet looking. The guy who did the conversion did a bunch of blog posts showing the making of and the results.

Man, looking at converted buses/vans gets my wanderlust going like almost nothing else. Although realizing how much renovation work is involved and how much fuel costs is usually enough to cure me.... But I still love looking at these and daydreaming.

Hah, I'm the opposite - I like the renovations with progress photos and blogposts, but I'm a homebody so if I made one I'd never take it anywhere.

wow! I was absolutely obsessed with this concept 13 years ago, at 16. There was another website, Mr Sharkey's Bus Emporium or something that catalogued other buses, but it went offline a while ago. thank you so much for this!
