Another weekend and another moving project. Did a little inventory and rearranging today and this is the result. Just wanted to share my buses with you.




Now I think I have every bus that JL has made (excluding those WL ones) except for this one:




Anyone know how rare it is ? Any leads as to where I could find one ? If you notice anything missing, please let me know. I love these little buses.
Thanks for looking and any help.

Uhm... that's a Chevy van, not a bus of any kind. I don't see any other vans in your collection. Why would you want this one? (other than it's nice and probably rare, but not a VW bus or a GMC bus like your others)

You know what, I really never noticed. I always thought it was a Samba Bus. Now that you mentioned it, your right !!! Thank You, I now believe my Bus collection is complete. This calls for a drink !!

Very nice display, I like that. Thanks for sharing the pic. As far as the Chevy Van goes I would like to know more about that one myself. Never seen that before.

Nice collection! I haven't taken the time to go over each one, but I know that there was also a Hobby Only Series 1 Surf Rods Bus that was released by Full Grid that had the Racers Edge Wheels.

Thanks for the info. Would you have a picture or link to one. I know I have a number of the surf buses (5th row down), just have to make sure that I have that variation though. I love a good hunt.

Wow! That's a great collection! It's amazing how many have been released. It doesn't seem like that many.
I remember thinking the same thing when I first sarted to collect them. How many could there be I thought ? How I soon found out .

What a cool collection! It must have been a lot of fun building your collection. How long did it take to get all those?

BTW, Stack is looking for the GMC Military bus - I think it's an exclusive - any leads to help him out?

Very cool! Do you draw the line against the pick-up version of the bus?
I do at this point. But with my collecting habits, that could change at any time. My biggest problem with the majority of the JLs that I collect is that they're not readily available here in Canada. I have to resort to OLDs, eBay and the helpfulness of members of this board. I've been able to manage over the years but I really don''t want to think of what I spent. Sometimes the shipping is more than the car. Oh well, when you have this "passion" you do what you have to.
