Perhaps the Rarest vintage Nissan in N America is at risk

I've been eyeing this thing up for years trying to get a chance to buy it, but it looks like the owner of the wrecking yard is in trouble and is being forced to sell. I've sent the agent a request for a heads up if the lot seels or they start clearing it, but I don't hold much hope... there are at least 3 S13's on ther and god knows what else... theres one of the 1970's volvo Sportscars P1800? rotting away right out front. its buried about 40 cars back so it would be a massive task to pry it out... would make a very cool stealth motorhome coversion.

Good luck! That would be a sweet addition to Canby's tent city... ;)

FYI~ the windshields (really, the whole bus) bear a remarkable resemblance to same-vintage GMC motorcoaches.

 

On a less optimistic note: if you can't get the whole bus, maybe you can save that nifty front emblem from the crusher...?

You should offer to buy the junkyard... then you get first pick of the cars they bring in there.

 

1. Buy junkyard

2. Acquire mean ass junkyard dog

3. Set fire to metal barrels for hobo warmth

4. ???

5. Profit

there is a decent retro market for old buses converted into mobile homes- mostly they are old greyhounds, but this id think would fall right in line . this would be a sound investment for someone capable of fixing it up

oh you met him so you must be his really good friend. i didnt say he did anything to me personally. but to start, when the writters went on strike a few years ago, he was the only latenight host that didnt side with the writers, by hiring scabs to keep his material flowing. he passed the torch to conan, then had NBC create a new time slot for him, later had conan fired to get his original time slot back. and all of this might be somewhat forgivable but the guy is not funny, he fits no criteria on what takes to be funny. all of his material is either stolen or written for him, and despite that he still cant nail a delivery. fuck that guy, fuck jay leno

That would be a sweet drive to Bonneville bus!  Sooo want!  Of course, getting it running again would cost quite a bit.  Lots of maintenance I'm sure.
