Green Day Donates Original Tour Bus To Wheels For Wishes

I can't believe I missed them drop this and the Boulevard/Holiday car off at the Rock Hall yesterday. I'm destined to never actually meet them. Grrr.

The HOLIDAY CAR?! Fuck, if I wasn't going to Chicago to see them this week, I'd be getting my ass to Cleveland ASAP! :runaround:

I know, so close it makes sense they would go there but I thought it would just be the bookmobile. Then they are driving around in the car from Holiday! Can't believe that old clunker still runs.

I am  pretty sure it wasn't running when they made the vid, am sure in the "making of" vid It was being pushed so they must have done some work on it.

Also, I think there was a photo a while ago of the bookmobile sitting outside Jingletown but I guess with it going, the bookmobile would have to too.  I read somewhere that there is a collective Green Day hanger full of cars, bikes etc somewhere aroundmOaklnad, does anyone know if that's true?

It sounds like the cars may only be there for a short amount of time. How ironic; I may miss seeing them because I'm traveling to Chicago to see the band. :lol:

Women's sunglasses, a badge with a picture of himself as a child on it and a horrific shirt, nice combo Beej.

Not sure where this video is from but I saw it on tumblr, shows them arriving in the car, and the bookmobile:

Didn't know that car had leopard print seats (but not at all surprised that it does) :lol:

So apparently it's not going to be there long before the auction. "A few weeks"

There letting me know the dates are. I'm busy with my sister's wedding till mid September.  😥

I wish it would just go to the museum. I get it's for chairty and love that. But it should be at least there for a bit longer for the fans.  If I had the money I would bid for it and then donate it to the museum. If only..

Didn't know this was a tv show either, hope it's better than the Junk Gypsy one, only managed to see some short, poor quality footage of it!

The Rock Hall said today on the phone that the Bookmobile will definitely be gone after Labor Day, so it looks like I'll be heading up on Saturday to see it. Brandon has to work so he can't come (and I won't be going into the museum then, since we're going to wait and do it together), so I guess I'll have to find some stranger to take my picture... unless you'll be around, @JardyOfSuburbia? :D

That would be amazing! I'll text you when I'm heading up there and let you know.

Glad this piece of early Green Day history got the attention it needed, and will live on in some lucky fan's garage. And for a good cause to boot.

Oh I really want to go see this this weekend, but I have no one to go with for the two and a half hour drive. 🙁 *sings* "I'm all by myself..."

The next time they have a special Green Day exhibit of course. I'm only 2 hours away, we'll do it. 🙂

Went to see it yesterday! Missed John Mellencamp performing an impromptu show on the plaza by about an hour :lol:

And they had a bunch of food trucks on the plaza yesterday and because I'm 12 years old, I have to say I laughed at the placement of the mayo dispenser ... how Longview-tastic :lol:
