Fabulous Flxible



(Click image for a larger view)

Looks like it should be "Flexible", and that is the way that you pronounce it. It was spelled this way so it could be trademarked.

This picture was taken up at Road America last summer. It is a detail of a beautiful Flxible motor coach. You have to be impressed with the 50s era construction, with exposed rivets everywhere and the fabulous chrome Flxible badge.

Flxible has a long history, starting out as a manufacturer of motorcycle sidecars, and produced buses from 1924 to 1996.

I wasn't able to talk to the owner, so I can't tell exactly which model this is or when it was built. The classic Flxible design has been produced in the U.S., Australia, Mexico and China.

I am guessing that this one is from the early-to-mid 1950s (If this is your coach, please let me know!)

If you must have one of these wonderful machines, complete with kitchen and bedroom, you can usually find several for sale here at http://www.sellabus.com/flxible.html
