Rare is the piece of music memorabilia that you can live in.
But until tomorrow midnight, anyone with $36,000 or so can throw their hat in the ring for just that on Craigslist: Willie Nelson's former home away from home, a Greyhound-sized 1983 Eagle tour bus complete with velvet curtains and an airbrushed eagle mural. No word on what pungent keepsake you might find between the cushions.
According to the Village Voice, which spoke with the man responsible for selling the bus, the vehicle is one of two custom-made for Willie, and had three owners before being sold. Here's the full text of the ad:

1983 Eagle Bus
Engine: 92 Detroit Diesel
Generator: 15kW Diesel Generator
The bus gets 7mpg with the generator running. The bus sleeps about 8+ just depending the situation. It has 4 A/C Units on the roof with heat as well. This bus was built for Willie Nelson in the 80's. The bus is in great working condition without any issues. If you have any questions call or text show contact info. Cash is the preferred method of payment. No trades or financing.
And now, ladies and gents, let's all remember just how cool Willie Nelson is--and why someone might fork over $36k for a highly customized 30-year-old bus. Here's a clip--happy Friday:
