I say 'real,' and have no reservations about it.....except that it's not in my garage

The secrets to highway driving in an early Bus, which I learned from my '66 Deluxe:
*Hold on tight to the wheel, and be prepared to countersteer when passed by big trucks.
*Don't be in a hurry to get anywhere(pedal-to-the-metal on level ground in mine was about 68mph :lol: )

Real.
And if it's not, Harry, you're fired :)
This brings back memories, like Dave and Dub.
Had a few of these in my days also.
Would love to get another one.
Maybe when things settle down.

Thanks, Harry, for all you have been doing lately.

To the two brave souls who wouldn't go along with the crowd and had the guts to vote "Model"...

You're wrong!!! :unsure:

As the rest of you said, it's REAL! (although it would make a cool model)...

Next one coming MONDAY!

After I voted, I tried to pin the year down....I had guessed it was a '59-61, based on a few little things I saw. I then hunted for pics of it on another site that I frequent, and found the classified ad:
'61 BUS FOR SALE

Thanks again for keeping the 'RoM' going, Harry!
