Wow...

That kind of leaves me speechless. Any idea what vintage that is? It's sure funky lookin' that's for sure. It would be a lot less offensive without the big star on the grill - looks like the clock in my father-in-law's house. Early 70s, I'm guessing.

Looks like it's in pretty nice shape though.

Looks like a converted Weenie Mobile. Is the bumper inside out? I sure would hate to clean the bugs off of that star.

i don't know what year it is, but I found the company. They are British, of course.

GM FutureLiner!! That really looks cool, cross between a locomotive and a greyhound bus. I bet Harley Earl had something to do with that design.

As far as the Daystar being British, the design is quite Brit, the interior is dark and lots of brass, almost an English pub look but the chassis is Dodge, or so I was told??

The Futurliner was not as cool as it looks... You are sitting 12 feet above the ground, a scant fot and a half below the bottom of most bridges. It was absolutely terrifying to be up there while driving. They also had to have two drivers for them, one to steer, and the other to operate the auxiliary systems. IIRC, there were twelve of them touring the country. They remind me of the GM Aerotrain, which was a wierd looking locomotive permanently attached to several bus bodies.
