Vintage Buses – III

Today is the last post in the painted buses series. Thanks again to John and Bernie. 🙂

I know some of you liked them, and others of you didn’t.

I have however (in my opinion) saved the best for last.

The coolest of all the hand painted buses was hands down the CBC bus. I remember seeing this thing all over town, and riding it a million times too…

Who ever designed it was a genius. The entire Windsor shoreline laid out across the bus.

This one is funny… Hard to remember back to a time when the “average crossing time was 3:15”. All I do remember is that it certainly didn’t cost $3.75 each way…

Good old Dealin’ Dick’s Central Chrysler. Before John Sheldon pulled it out of downtown, and plopped it down into the sprawled out mess of the Provincial/Cabana area.

Check out the old Woolworth’s signs behind the bus, back when Downtown still had viable retail. For the record the photo was taken in March, 1992.
