I thought I’d update you with a few pictures taken in the detail shop–it is a BEAUTIFUL bus and we are proud to have it in our collection. Upon some investigation, we have discovered it started its life as a school bus. Unfortunately, on its trip here to the Museum, someone walked off with the radiator cap–however, due to the diligence of volunteer Ken McNellis, he has located one and it will soon be in our hands. Thanks, Ken!

We haven’t had a chance to move our 1929 Pierce Arrow that hauled Lowell Fulson & His Band around in the film Ray, which depicted the life and times of R&B musician Ray Charles onto the floor yet but if you are lucky enough to visit the Museum while one of the BUS Museum volunteers are on the floor, you can ask them to take a peak at it as it is being stored in the detail shop. The Pierce Arrow was donated to the Museum by Robert Walsh, Indianapolis, IN. Pierce Arrow made only a few buses, all body-on-chassis units.
