Bucket Express

A 50's vintage bus at the legendary Pearsonville Junkyard. Once home to 4,000 vehicles, it's been 3/4 cleaned out in recent years after old man Pearson died. Still, there is a whole lot of interesting iron in here for a geek like me to shoot. No telling how long this place will be around . . .


Night, full moon, 2 minute exposure, red-gelled strobe flash.

    Wonderful shot..I believe this is a Brill coach and I drove the electric as well as the diesel version in Vancouver, Canada in the 1980's.
    They were last used there in 85 or 86.
    So much for trivia-----great shot and I like the chair where it is.

    awesome shot! great use of light.

    ¿Some colour on the chair? But it is a sinister looking picture, like the bus of death inside. The bus itself seems to be sad.

    I'm willing to bet that that is (or was) a G.M. 3714 transit bus.

    Great picture by the way, the seat totally makes this one for me.
