Antique buses are a testament to classic patriotism, style, and reverence for the history that has made us what we are today. This goes beyond interest in just antique buses, and includes all objects of antiquity. There are a reminder of where we come from. When properly cared for, they are an example and reminder of the gentle side of human nature. For most antique bus fans, they are probably just a cool thing to have. That's fine too, but please respect your antique buses! Vintage is valuable because it is rare. Vintage buses are definitively rare and limited in edition. So if you are interested in an antique bus, be prepared to take extra special care of it, and be aware that owners of antique buses may have a certain fondness for their 'babies' and as such it would be a good idea to show respect for that. It might even save you a couple bucks just to make the previous owner feel good about their antique bus and comfortable with giving you the reigns. Most antique buses aren't going to be available through motivated sellers, so it would probably be a good idea to pay a little homage to the sellers ego.. "This is a beautiful antique bus! I can only hope that I will take as good care of it as you have". You get the idea.
