Own a piece of bluegrass history…

Former Bill Monroe tour bus at auction on ebayCheck your closets, everybody. If you can scrape together $49,000, you can purchase a 1965 tour bus previously owned by Bill Monroe. If you’re feeling lucky, it only takes $19,000 to open the bidding at ebay Motors for a chance to drive home with Big Mon’s bus.

The seller offers the following details:

It is a driving operating fun bus that was bought from the king of bluegreass in Nashville TN on 4-23-1994. It has 3 bullet holes in the edge of the door where Monroe was apparently shot at leaving one of his concerts. This bus contains THE ORIGINAL CLAWFOOT TUB from a house he had installed. It has the table(pictured) which Monroe counted his money on and prepared his business contracts during traveling. It has a 318 Detroit that was rebuilt by Monroe shortly before the sale.

So… what are you waiting for?
