Call for Archival Footage/Photos

Our sleeves are rolled up and we're getting our hands dirty. We're currently in full research mode on the hunt for vintage film footage, video and photos of buses in action. In particular we are looking for materials of (but not limited to): roadtrips, camping, hippies, surfing, skiing, round-the-world adventures, working on buses, etc. We know there are some gems out there hiding in basements and attics, so let us include your material in the film to be forever memorialized!

Please message us if you are in the know. Many thanks!

      A friend of mine welded 2 79 bay window buses together and custom made a pop top for it. I can get pictures of it or send you contact info.

      You should contact the owner of the footage in this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch… The 8mm footage is from 1971 and shows some creativity in getting a bus from a container onto a ship.

      Super cool people traveling around with their son in South America in their '71 bus. Worth checking out!
