Partridge Family Bus Replica

Parked outside Aaron's Antiques II Brewed Awakenings Wine & Beer Lounge is a replica of The Partridge Family bus. Apparently it was used to promote the show, but is not the bus that was used in the show. Such a strange and groovy sight in this tiny town in the middle of nowhere.

[John Arehart, 05/02/2017]

Tipster John, an art director, points out that the bus was inspired by Piet Mondrian's "Composizione 1921."
