Default Antique Bus Gathering - Blytheville, AR 2019

Had an opportunity to attend the Antique Bus Homecoming in Blytheville, AR this past weekend. Activities were centered around the restored old Greyhound Station.
A good showing of some vintage buses in various conditions and configurations. There were completely original examples and drastic conversions represented.
Of course, there was a parade of participants through Main Street, Downtown. I had a less than desirable position regarding lighting, but managed to capture the parade in a video. The bus of the group I was with is #6 in the parade lineup - Trailways #202. A 1958 GM PD-4104. Detroit 6-71 powered. 4 speed manual transmission. No power steering.

Nice showing! How old was the oldest one? A local bus company (deCamp), restored their first bus several years ago. I believe it is over 75 years old! They still use it for special excursians Neat looking machine, done up in its original livery colors

If any of you are bus junkies, here is a vid which includes some tours of those busses, shot by the "Bus Grease Monkey". I watch his youtube channel regularly, he has some good Detroit Diesel and general bus repair videos.
