A few of the DHP guys will be out there this year Franz, looking forward to checking out this bus in person. Do it!

Franz that rack is awesome, it flows so good with that hatch and roof. Have you thought about making one for the front? I love how it hugs the roof and not 12" in the air.

Check out the cut outs in the roof, anyone think it is another Safari bus or just a random hack? :-k

Those are the infamous "T tops" often found on popular American 70's sports cars. A must for any true "muscle bus".

The Safari Bus by zombikombi1959, on Flickr

This is such a cool bus Franz! It was love at first site when we stayed at the shop =P~ Just found this thread and reading up on it's history, fascinating ...

The perfect Shasta bus with all those camera hatches ... :-k

I'm a huge Barndoor nut, but I think if I had to choose a favorite between your 52 and this, the Safari bus would win hands down \:D/

That surface rust wouldn't last a minute out here in Florida before that thing tuned to dust. That's why I like Colorado. Smile

Leaving in the morning to drive the safari bus to Richard's place. Richard and I worked a trade. I will be driving a 59 single cab back \:D/

I'm going to miss this bus, it sure has been a lot of fun.
