Some More Background on the New Bus

9 07 2010

Taiga Lily was first registered on May 24, 1976. From the papers, she has had 6 previous owners. They kept her for 2 years, 21 years, 1 year, 1 year, 5 years and 4 years, respectively. She was officially taken off the road in 2003 and sold to a friend of mine in about 2006. Judging from very few patches where some older color shines through, she was probably originally painted in yellow. My friend got some rusty corners welded, the frontwheel holder removed, and the whole bus resprayed in taigagreen and perlwhite. Then she was put aside for lack of time. I bought her in this partly restaurated state in July 2010.
