Photos in the “Maximum Overdrive "Gone Racing" bus” Album

Album photo
Description: This bus was the one used for the Stephen King movie Maximum Overdrive, not that many will remember that one. It is owned by a guy that used it for going to race tracks all over the U.S. where he was racing his porsche. Said he tried driving regular motor homes, but they weren't fast enough, the bus would cruise all day at 90-100 mph so he could get where he was going in plenty of time to party and get ready for racing.
It sat in my yard while I created some new seating for it, (got my neighbors wondering). The owner wanted storage under the couch and love seat which I was able to do for him as the pictures show. Also reupholstered the driver and passenger seat and re-worked some cabinets in the bus. The owner took it back and came back the next year after the racing season was over and wanted the bedroom reconfigured and I was working up a blue print to re-do all of it when he called me and told me it had caught fire, and he wanted the entire thing redone. Unfortunately the fire got so hot, it melted some of the frame and made it pretty much inoperable without dumping way too much money into.
