The bus rendered above is Luke's 1971 bus, sketched Richard Scarry-style by Luke, simply because his books and artwork had such an influence on him growing up. Purchased a lowly and solid 1971 Volkswagen Deluxe Sunroof Transporter during the summer of 2009 from an nice lady who had stored it for eighteen years. Let's see where this leads.
