One of Willie Nelson’s tour buses is back on the market,according to an online ad.
The Craiglist’s post, first noticed by Reddit, says the “Me and Paul” bus, named after Willie Nelson Family Band drummer Paul English, was used to ferry the Red Headed Stranger and his friends around the country for years on tour.
The auction closes Nov. 7. Go to meandpaulbus.com to bid on the vehicle — as of Wednesday afternoon, the top bid was $75,500.
Austinites Taylor Perkins and Michael Tashnick, backed by a group of investors, bought the 1983 Eagle bus in 2014 for $100,000. They had planned to rent it out through their business, Vintage Innovations. But the Craiglists ad indicates the two “have been too busy with work and family and have decided to get the bus on the road again for its next journey.”
