"They had a green, I think a light green color, a light blue and then this maroon color," Rod Lashley said.
The 21-window, rag top roof vehicle is usually the apple of Lashley's eye, but lately it's been the root of his pain.
"I sort of see people's interest, but boy were they making me miserable," Lashley said.
For the past five years, he and his wife, Debra have seen numerous people show up at their door daily asking if the bus is for sale.
"You're doing something, there's a knock on the door, the dogs are going crazy, you stop what you're doing and go answer the door and it's someone asking about the car again," Debra said.
Debra finally got fed up with the constant attention. Last week, they put up a sign on the bus that reads ?Not for sale. Don't ask. Don't call. Don't trespass. Do not knock.? So far, so good. Their plan to ward off avid Volkswagen fans has worked.
"At first it was nice, but your whole day is constantly interrupted," Debra said.
She said that they would get a minimum of six visitors a day before the sign was up. Some brought cold hard cash to prove the deal was real.
