Senior pranksters take the bus to school

Visitor Comments (Add your Comments)
05/22/03 Taylor Nelson This was done over at Homestead HS in Sunnyvale, CA back in 2000 (I think). This bus was in the yard of a shop I used to deliver parts to. The kids bought it, hacked it down the middle of the cargo doors, put a hole in the floor and roof, and then stuck it around the tree as their senior prank. I think it was a 66.

Thom Fitzpatrick's '55 single cab on the day he bought it
Visitor Comments (Add your Comments)
07/11/03 Clayton I have just bought a splitty single cab and I am having trouble finding what year she is. I think she may be a 55 but I have been getting conflicting information from books and I was wondering if you could help. Could you tell me what the number in the left hand engine bay mudgard curve is. The number in mine is PU1416. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated as I really want to know all about my new (old) bus.

03/14/03 Jules Names get changed. tried to buy an item off a Mr Schatz !? Lost my money & never saw his name again. More like me Shitz me thinks.
03/13/03 splitwindowman C'mon, Rikki, we need a name or e-mail address as well. The warning doesn't do much good if no one knows who he is. Expose this lying cheat!
03/08/03 Brendan Rikki- Why don't you post his name for all of us to see? He's obviously a jackass and I don't think he deserves anonymity.

Ongoing 59 DD project. This bus is IRS'd with dropped spindles and a 1600 sp dual carbs. Since starting the project I've collected OG Hurst Bumpers, full rack, KPH speedo, factory safaris and NOS front and rear lighting. As of Jan 2003, it just needs paint!

01/06/06 Mike So they finally sold it? Do you mind saying how much they wanted?
12/11/05 D I bought that bus:) When I got it home and took it apart, I found it is a Jan. 58. Solid and clean for sitting so long.
08/23/03 Tina I know that bus!!!
I pass them every time I go to school. Good shop, nice guys and great service. They were the ones to make my poor bus run after I bought it from it's previous owner.
04/08/03 Mike I went in about 4 years back and asked about it. Siad it was a warm dry place for the dogs to sleep in. Thats why the cargo doors are open.
04/08/03 Fred I've been driving past the van for the past 25 years... It hasn't moved!

I went out to look at this bus a few weeks back. the guy who had it actually though that it was restorable. it is rusty, there are dents on every panel, extra holes everywhere, and there is a huge hack over the engine compartment. you could actually change the axle boots from the rear seat in this bus. it is original paint. the guy was fishing for $400 for the bus. I offered $100 which I thought was more than fair. I think that $200 would get it.
