    every once in while i rewatch this video, everytime it makes me sad to see the little bus sitting in this forest for 40 years, the moment when it drives down the gravel and finally touches the asphalt again is so unbelievable satisfying.

    They did have electric starters, the hand crank was there as a backup. I think they had provisions for the hand crank until about 1960.

    I kinda wonder why someone would take a classic bus, drive it into that forest and take it deep really deep inside the forest, and park in between the two trees and then just leave it behind to rot, like imagine being some old guy who turns out to be the one who abandoned the bus there in the 1970’s, and then said he was having problems with the bus so he took it deep into the forest and abandoned it
