It’s a nice ol’ bus with lots of history!”

Oh, T. Russell, we want to see pictures when you’re done.  And tell us what you have planned for it.  Let us know if you are going to take it to a Willie Nelson and Family show.  And what was the final bid, if you don’t mind me asking.

    I was the original driver of this coach, built by Florida Coach in 1987. I drove it until 1993. It was never used by Willie in that time period. But was used on many other rock and roll tours.

    This was actually a bus owned by Asleep at the Wheel. It was a bus that was built for Willie by Florida Coach but was never actually purchased by Willie. I spent many a nights on that bus when I was with Asleep at the Wheel.
