Where the heck did the bus come from? 

The bus has served as Starling's bedroom for ten summers. We spotted it abandoned in a field by the highway and when we inquired the owner about it, he told us he'd sell it to us for $50.00 if we also paid for it to be towed out of the field. The bus is a 1959 Chevrolet Viking. It didn’t run when we first bought it but we found a similar bus from 1987 and used its parts (the engine, chassis, etc.) on the frame of the 1959 bus so even though it’s a 50s bus, it is automatic. The entire inside of the bus had to be torn out and redone. It was all done by Will Winkelman of Winkelman Architecture.
