Ron Chandler’s 1962 Aloha Bus

From Bus Junkies fan Ron Chandler: We love our old Splitty…This 1962 bus was originally finished this way and we have just added to it. Love the Aloha theme. We have driven this bus thousands of miles from Utah to Washington and down the 1, 101 to San Diego 3 times. We purchased this bus a few years ago in Arizona. So many good road trips have been in this bus. Thousands of miles. It has been to numerous shows and is always a hit with the “Hippy” crowd. Surfers won't ever let us leave once we stop along the beaches. From the info I gathered it was an Arizona bus and was restored by a Hawaiian dude. We purchased it in Lake Havasu. It has original Tapa cloth and the Tiki shifter was hand carved in Hawaii. We have kept the theme going because it is so fun to drive and makes so many people smile with Thumbs up. We love this bus!

    Ron,
    Would you like to tell a Road Trip story in book #3 of The Old Car Nut Book? More details on the website. There is limited space remaining at this point, but I would love to include a personal road trip story from you about the Aloha bus.
