This Guy Made Big Changes To An Old Chevy Bus.

Ryan Lovelace posted in his blog about the day he bought an old Chevy bus from 1948:

Late May 2012 – The day I bought Ophelia. The 1948 Chevy bus I found on craigslist that was described as, “Runs, Drives, Stops, Registered.” That was all I had to know.

Ryan has worked hard to refurbish Ophelia and has successfully turned her into his new rolling home.
