Michael Kersnick and Donna Mozzone own a small classic automobile collection in Burbank, California which includes a Silver Streak travel trailer. When they went to a show looking for more vintage travel trailers they never expected it would be a bus and not another travel trailer that they would soon be adding to their collection. An ad on Craigslist alerted them to the sale of a classic travel trailer which was WAY too long to fit in the driveway. On the property stood a 1961 FLXIBLE bus. The owner said “might you be interested in the bus?” They thought the bus was cool but being even bigger than the trailer, it was not practical.
They mentioned the bus to their good buddy Jim Zalabsky, who took an interest. After traveling to see the bus, Jim recommended that they should not just walk away. While Jim was growing up, his father had owned a number of buses which he would lease out. It was because of them that he acquired the skills for doing maintenance and repair after school, on weekends and during the summer. He learned how to drive the buses as well and it was really special whenever his dad would buy a new one which required a road trip to pick it up and an exciting ride home.
So Jim got fired up about this bus. With its quality built in cabinetry and vintage décor the interior is like a time capsule from the 70s (though, they did ditch the gold shag carpeting) but the outside definitely needed some work. After suggesting to Donna and Michael that this would be an “interesting project” they decided to buy the bus. It’s been two and a half years since they bought it and with Jim focusing on the mechanics the bus is approaching road ready status. So now all the FLXIBLE needs is a facelift and Final Touch Coach Works is here to help. Stay tuned to see progress pictures and eventually the final product!
