Don’t worry, officer, this one’s already had a good scrubbing.

A tour bus owned for a dozen years by country music legend Willie Nelson is set to cross the block at the Auctions America event in Auburn, Indiana this Labor Day weekend.

The Eagle 1 Motor Coach was purchased by the singer in 1986 and crisscrossed the country with him until 1999.

Christened “Honeysuckle Rose,” the 40-foot-long RV features sleeping for six, a standup shower, plenty of audio/visual equipment from the era and western themed murals by an artist known as “Rainmaker.”

A feature story about the bus that appeared on Vice.com says that when restoration work began years ago a box of marijuana was discovered hidden in a lighting fixture and THC residue was all over the place.

Unfortunately, the walls are not known to have the ability to talk, but for a pre-sale estimate of just $60,000-$80,000 it sure would make a fine conversation piece parked in the infield of a NASCAR race.
