    2014 SEMA GM Futurliner : Parade of Progress Bus

    Even though the 2014 SEMA Show hasn't even started and even though I am far from having seeing all the cool vehicles it will have on display, I have to say that this 1940's GM Futurliner : Parade of Progress Bus is by far the most awesome thing I've seen here!! Literally, this is only 1 of 9 still known to exist out of the 12 made and it was restored immaculately! Check it out...

    It's an awesome restoration! One of the other remaining restored buses sold at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale for over $5million a few years ago. Fantastic piece of automotive history.

    edit: Sold for $4.1Million. What's a million or so?

    What is ironic is that I was watching a hot rod show just this last week and they were in the process of restoring this exact Dreamliner. There is a lot of steel, blood, sweat and time infested. I think their time line for start to finish was 18 months for a crew of 4 working on it. Everything is original down to the copper brake lines and the rebuilt motor with exact parts.

    Kindig it Design did the restoration

    Dave Kindig and his guys at Bitchin Rides did the restoration. Took them like three years to complete. Pretty amazing. Would love to see it in person.

    DID I MENTION MY RIG IS FOR SALE?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
