WARNING OT

well you may not care but i found it interesting.....
this is the charlie manson bus in goler cyn(was a very extreme run, so could be on-topic). this was taken at the barker ranch just a few days after the clan was busted. they were picked up for stolen cars and torching a piece of death valley park service equiptment. i lived in death valley back then in 69.

Re: WARNING OT

did you ever hear those buggys cruising at night back in 69?

Re: WARNING OT

wish i could get the pic a little lighter. they brought the bus up from the death valley side, through butte valley. it wouldn't make it up from the panamint valley side through goler. i was on a death valley message board when someone asked what ever became of the bus and someone else said they think they spotted in trona ca, and was wondering what color it was. i drug this photo out of the archives to settle the dispute.

Re: Lighter

thanks, that's better but still dark. when i print it on the printer, it comes out real nice. all that stuff on the ground are clothes thrown out of the bus by the cops when they did the bust. chicks were running around topless and taking a leak right in front of the cops. charlie ran off and almost got away in a small cupboard in the kitchen but didn't quite get the door closed and a cop saw some hair hanging out.
