FORT WAYNE, Indiana (Indiana's NewsCenter)-Heather: I like old stuff I like restoring old stuff making it work again and this bus really needed help. I planned on getting the rust repaired and a real paint job but I couldn’t really afford it. So I thought I’ll just paint like flowers over the rust and you’ll never even notice and I just kept going and I got out of control with it and now it’s covered and now I don’t want to change it. I like that it makes other people smile not just me. I think it looks great I think it really cheers you up once you look at it. They don’t make ‘em like that no more. What do you think of the paint job? Someone had a lot of time. There’s nothing out there like this I don’t think. Because it’s bright and colorful and it’s my little art project. I’m definitely an artist.
