That was my first first thought when I spied this fantastic vintage bus parked off to the side of a narrow road in Summerland, as we headed out to Kelowna on the day we snapped the photos for my red and white Canada Day photo shoot (if this outfit looks familiar, that's why).
It's not terribly uncommon to encounter vintage cars, especially around these parts (where scads of classic car enthusiasts reside), but it's not every day that you run into an old bus just sitting their by itself on a field and house lined street, and I knew instantly that I wanted to grab some photos with it.
"How old do you think it is?" Tony asked as pulled up. "I'd peg it to be late 40s or early 50s, but I'm not an absolute expert on vintage bus models", I replied as we hurried to get the camera out before the sky overhead started pelting us with the rain it was promising to release any moment.
Before the water started tumbling down we got in a couple of photos, which I was pleased as punch about, as I've always been a huge fan of the movie A League of Their Own, yet haven't had a chance before to pose with a bus that very easily could have hopped right out that terrific baseball movie.
As it turns out, the bus had a paper tapped up in the front window with its date on it: 1948, so my hunch was correct (love it when that happens), it was from the late 40s.
Though the rain prevented us from making a full on shoot out of this location, it was still an absolute blast to spend a few moments in the company of such a streamlined, beautiful piece of yesteryear automotive history.
As we launch into this (somewhat sunnier) Friday, I hope to have another fun adventure or two to share with you in the near feature, and am sending out scores of wishes to you each for a thoroughly awesome summer weekend ahead!
