You never know who or what will be pulling into our shop. We always love seeing a classic Continental Trailways Eagle Model 05 pulling in for some TLC. Given our years of experience we could help their needs to prepare for a movie shoot with this coach and prepare it for its journey to their collection. We were blessed with this coach dropping in from the Buys Boys Collection while in the area. They are great friends and have a passion for the motorcoach industry.
Created to preserve and protect the heritage of the bus industry by collecting and restoring vintage buses, as well as industry-related memorabilia, the “Bus Boys Collection”, a 501(c)3 non-profit, was formed by brothers Dan and Stan Holter in 2009.
The Holter family owns the Richfield Bus Company, Rochester City Lines, and Heartland Tours and Travel, operating local and nationwide charter service, commuter service, and tours. The successful family business was started by George and Marilyn Holter in 1959 when Dan and Stan were just boys. Having grown up in the bus business, the brothers developed a passion for preservation and a commitment to seek out and preserve their industry’s history.
The Collection’s over 100 vintage buses represent what is believed to be the largest collection of operable buses in North America, if not the world. You can learn more about their collection here.
