One can only image the contact high just from brushing against the fabric on the seats!

Sweet, pretty pimp for one from 83, but then he does live pretty much on the road.

If you buy it be sure to check between the cushions.  You could find a could five, maybe even ten pounds of great weed.

And at least enough change to buy a soda and unlimited time at the car wash.

(csb) Back in the 80's Willie used to swap tour buses with other musicians from different genres. Either he was having stalker issues or IRS issues, I'm not sure which. Maybe swapping buses is a more common practice than I realize. So one November afternoon in 1986 I see Willie's tour bus pulled up in front of a small local concert venue, and I knew Willie wasn't anywhere near my neck of the woods. Curious, I park and walk into the lobby of the concert hall. I hear drums. LOUD drums, and a beat I'd recognize anywhere. I peek in.

Holy farking hell, Peter Gabriel and his band are rehearsing "Biko". (/csb)

That's not far from where I live, at all.  I've seen the thing, but I had no idea what it was, beyond a bus with a slick paint job.

$30k? Flip it.

/rehabbing it decreases the value

I'd love to buy that bus just to drive it when we see him in June, then re-sell it.

I always heard that his herb was top shelf
I just could not wait to find out for myself
Don't knock it 'til you tried it, well, I tried it my friend
And I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

I learned a hard lesson in a small Texas town
He fired up a fat boy and passed him around
The last words, that I spoke before they tucked me in
Was, I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some old whiskey river my friend
But, I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

I hopped on his old bus, the honey suckle rose
The party was Vegas it was after the show
Alone in the front lounge with just me and him
With one parting puff grim creeper set in

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some old whiskey river my friend
But, I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

Now we're passing the guitar and telling good jokes
I know ones a-comin' 'cause I'm smelling smoke
No, I do not partake, I just let it pass by
With a smile on my face and a great contact high

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some old whiskey river my friend
But, I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

In the fetal position with drool on my chin
I messed up and smoked weed with Willie again

Does it come with its own stash or is it BYOM?

Can I declare it Sovereign territory and use it as a tax haven?

Why do musicians have tour busses? It seems to me that it would be cheaper to just fly to your next gig.

Hokey smokes, I actually hung out in that thing once.

My dad had a limo business and Willie's agent was one of his clients. Willie played the Tanglewood festival one year and Dad brought me up to keep him company... at one point they stuck me and Tom Rush's son there while they were preparing for his set. So long story short, we played GI Joe on Willie's bus. :)

It'll end up in the hands of some nut who won't shut up about how he bought Willie Nelson's bus.  Just like the Partridge Family bus from the movie about the Partridge Family.  I met the guy who now owns it, and even though we were there for other business, he wouldn't shut up about it.  The worst part, he looked like the type of guy who'd spend the first 24 hours he had the bus sniffing the seats for the scent of David Cassidy.

/I didn't bother telling him David never been on that bus.

internut scholar: Why do musicians have tour busses? It seems to me that it would be cheaper to just fly to your next gig.


I thought about this also, But I figured, well first you would have to spend all your time traveling to and from airports while with buses you get in and be driven directly. Not all venues are near the local airport. At the airport you either have a private plane which costs a lot or you use commercial which brings up a lot of bullshiat. Then you got to worry about getting a new hotel room every night. Which means loading and unloading luggage as well as packing and unpacking the suitcases themselves. Multiply that for everyone in the band and the entourage and it adds up.

As you saw these aren't normal buses. With these you have your own personal, secure space. A comfy bed that you know and return to each night. You don't have to pack or unpack on a daily basis. While you travel you can at least watch the scenery which has got to beat just seeing the inside of airport terminals and hotels. Especially as you sit at the window with a platter full of weed to help you watch it go by judging by the picture above..

Makes sense. Thank you
