What is it about this bus that makes it special other than that it was given by Elvis to JD? How frequently did Elvis himself use the bus? Are there any photos that connect Elvis to the bus? Is there anything on the inside that distinguishes it from any other tour bus of that era?

They should get it from Lisa or Priscilla.......theyare constantly taking from the fans so they should give something back!

this sounds like a job for BMG (buy my garbage) they sell garbage CD's so why not buy a big Garbage pail to keep them in

Sorry, not worth it. Now if it was the bus that Elvis used to drive back and forth to Hollywood in the 60's YES, but not this one. I've often wondered what happened to that bus....?? anyone know?

having designed community development projects in south america for a while I wonder why they do not inform us about the total amount of the cost. we need 00000'00 dollars. what they also should consider is the money for a carport as this "historical" vehicle needs some shelter or it will deteriorate again...on the other hand: what is the reason for all the hype for everything which was used by elvis presley during his lifetime. forgive, but as completists we should hurry up an put hands on every toilet used by the man in his lifetime. sorry, but I just can't stand it...

Before anyone thinks of sending a donation, which I seriously doubt, you need to check on the Elvis Presley Heights Memorial Wall and Elvis Presley Heights Cemetary, both of which never materilized by the same sponsors. Gee is it getting shady in here.

what they show on their site is the ribbon cutting for the memory wall...looks like a copy of the Vietnam Memorial at D.C. The unserious thing about this is what elvisnites stated below, as long as the only provide the ribbon cutting for the wall, why do they aim for another project?! Said with an Elvis-lyric line: keep your hands off...;-)
