Troy Wheeler and I met in 2001 at the Crown Plaza in the infamous parking lot. He and his friends had driven down from Idaho in their busses. Im sure you've seen one of his cars. Troy had been in the bus game for quite some years. His first feature car was on 97 in VW Trends Red & Black Camper called "Summer Fun". After that bus found its way to Japan. He hit the streets in his "Road Dog" busses. You may remember the "Nurburgring safety double cab". He's always had a unique style. We talk about building your own style, and the quest to get his Barn Door done. Friends & road trips.
