Hi guys. I was on my way to work one day and as I was about to get on the freeway, I saw this getting off the freeway. When I went home that night, I spotted it parked in this lot and had to turn around and take this picture. I called it 'the party bus' but I'd be afraid to set foot inside. I guarantee this is a one-off. Enjoy.

Thanks, Daryn

As I got a few steps past the driver's side and turned around - there was someone getting into the car. The must have been right behind me as I walked up. This is a shame as I didn't get a good pic of the flag on the roof. Or the "yeah it's got a Hemi" stickers on the rear side windows.
