Johnny Cash Tour Bus Headed for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

GROVE CITY, OH - Johnny Cash's tour bus makes its journey today to a place of honor.

The country music legend's 40-foot motor coach will leave a restoration company outside Columbus, Ohio, on a drive up to Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

The museum plans to use Cash's home-on-the-road as an outdoor exhibit.

Florida collector Dave Wright, who bought the bus on eBay, says the hall also might use it to transport inductees and other celebrities around town.

Cash, an Arkansas native who grew up in Region 8, rode "JC Unit One" an estimated 1.5 million miles from 1979 until 2003, the year he died in Nashville.

The bus was built by a company in Columbus in 1979, and the "Man in Black" paid more than a half-million dollars for it.
