Not exactly odd, but really nice and interesting.
I got to check out this fine Flexible coach at Laguna Seca during this summers trip.
It belongs to Jay Leno's chief mechanic Bernard Juchli and his sweet wife Rosalee. They have owned the coach for over 20 years and did the conversion themselve over the years in their back yard .
As you would guess its a very meticulous job of creating a comfortable, very capable motorhome..

The coach has ducted AC, beautifully crafted interior, and a modern up sized engine and trans. Its able to tow a trailer full of parts, tools and the F 1 sidecar motorcycle
That Benard is currently national champion with.

One of the features that I liked and see as a good fit for our curved ceilings , is the pressed metal ceiling tiles. Very "old west"to me. Looks great in person!

Cheers Richard

In the movie "RV" they have a Flexible bus that's supposed to be owned by Jeff Daniels aka Travis Gornike. Travis used it in the movie. I remember seeing some of those old buses in service when I was a kid.

Thanks for the correction M Hony, that is another nice rig. Interesting/ cool paint work.
Its funny, Flexible or fixable. Neither seems a great choice of names for Such a cool a bus.

Yep Mike, that rig is a true gem! I too love to see classics brought back to a new life.
I particularly like the more aero flowing lines of the long haul buses like that one
As contrasting to more in town buses that can be more boxy.

But it is great to see what folks can do with these old rigs.

Cheers Richard

Ps. wonder what is in that hood extension, Gen. possibly?

Possibly moves the radiator a little forward to make the entry a little wider?
Bluebird Wanderlodges are cool rigs, though.
