Post Re: Alton IL
Speaking of Alton, IL, the '66 bug I just bought had a ton of paperwork (history) that came with it. One of the pieces was a '66 IL map. The pic on the front was a view of a river with a curvy road and a rock bank to the left of the pic. My first thought was that I recognize that shot and have been there. I read the bottom of the map and it was Alton, IL. It was the view of a stretch of hwy that we used to drive during each Buses By the Arch weekend when we would carabus up into IL and take two ferry boat's packing our buses as tight as we could get them. We would end the cruise in Alton, IL driving up that stretch of hwy. That was back in the early to late 90s when the Bowman's hosted BBTA @ O'Fallon, MO exit 217. I showed Brandon the front of the map and he instantly recognized that pic from the BBTA event. Very cool having the tie of the new '66 bug with a past event in my life. I'll have to scan it an post.

the bug looks like it runs but did you knock on the door and ask about the bus?
