Making The Move
Although the couple initially lived in Winfield, Kansas, they eventually moved to Jean’s hometown in Horning Mills, a small village in Canada, during 1970. Bruce knew that he needed plenty of space and a host of tranquility if he ever hoped to bring his project to life. He continued to work all hours under the sun until Bruce had finally tracked down as many buses as he could to get the ball rolling. This was merely the start of it all.
Completing His Collection
The first bus pulled up at the couple’s new house in 1980. Over the next few years, Bruce continued to buy as many vehicles as he could find. However, he needed plenty of money as each bus cost Bruce around $300 each. Thankfully, he eventually had 42 vehicles. This was the perfect number to start his project. So what was it that made these buses so popular to Bruce? They had a pretty unique aspect: their reinforced steel roofs.
