Kesey Bus Restoration
FILE - In this April 24, 1997 file photo, author Ken Kesey poses with his bus "Further," a descendant of the vehicle that carried him and the Merry Pranksters on the 1964 trip immortalized in the Tom Wolfe book, "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," in Springfield, Ore. The family announced plans Friday to restore the original 1939 International bus in time for the 50th anniversary of the original trip. Kesey put the old bus, called "Further," into retirement in a swampy patch of woods on his farm, and years later bought this newer one, which in typical Prankster style he tried to pass off as the original.
