My Vision of Peace
Travel, domestic and international, was a prominent feature during the Summer of Love, becoming (in this communal process) an extension of friendship. School buses similar to Ken Kesey's Further, or the iconic VW bus, were popular because groups of friends could travel on the cheap. The VW Bus became known as a counterculture and hippie symbol, and many buses were repainted with graphics and/or custom paint jobs these were predecessors to the modern-day art car. A peace symbol often replaced the Volkswagen logo. Many hippies favored hitchhiking as a primary mode of transport because it was economical, environmentally friendly, and a way to meet new people. You've heard of Herbie the Love Bug...meet Benjamin the Love Bus~

Definitely a Hell Yeah! There are so many reasons The Love Bus is near and dear to my heart and represents peace to me as well. What a perfect entry...but then I would have thought you would do nothing less. Peace.

Few things are as iconic (at least to me) as the ol' Love Bus. Even in Beaumont, Texas during the late 60's we understood the allure and lore of it's image.

"Ride on the Peace Train -- ooo ah eee ah ooo ah!" Nothin' screams peace like a 1960's Vanagon! That's a beauty! Love it, man.

That does conjure up memories....except the ones I remember were never that flawless and pristine! They were usually well used and made up of spare doors etc. that were different colors from the body! What is it they say "If you can remember the sixties, you weren't really there!?"I still don't trust anybody over 30! Great photo!
