Chutney - My 73 "Auto-Bus"

How I got the name Chutney: I got the name Chutney on Thanksgiving day... I was helping my mom in the kitchen
with the turkey and fixins' for the big dinner.. She asked me to go downstairs to the cold-cellar and get her a bottle of
homemade chutney for with the turkey .... I had a Brain-Fart and said hey now Chutney is kinda a funny
but kewl name... It made a connection to my bus.. So from that day on my bus was called Chutney!

NEW PICS BELOW! Posted 03/18/2005.

I found some nice surprises there which I can't post on the net...

This is Chutney with no windsheild... I took the opportunity to paint my dashboard while I had the chance!

EWWWW... nasty old rear shocks! Can you believe I had that on my bus.. You know when your shock is in 2 parts that it can't be a good thing! :P

Hey look it is my dad! Boy am I glad I got him helping.. He works cheap! Chocolate and Hugs will get him through the job!

Inside Chutney - I polished the dash with vynil conditioner..

This is my puppy Sammy I guess she likes the bus... She is ready to go camping... have to wait till next year..
