Queen Priscilla Found 30 Years Later

The 1994 Australian movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, was about three drag queens on a road trip across the Outback, but none of them was named Priscilla. The title character was their bus. After the filming, the three lead actors went on to other roles, and the bus was returned to its owner, and was used as a band’s tour bus for a few years. But eventually, Priscilla the bus disappeared. Fans looked into tracking it and found nothing but copies. The History Trust of South Australia wanted to find the original bus for the National Motor Museum, but kept coming up empty.

Then in 2019 a man in the tiny town of Ewingar, New South Wales, proclaimed he had the bus, and was afraid that it would deteriorate further unless someone took care of it. Authenticating that he had the real Priscilla was a tough job, but it turned out to be the real thing. The bus had been through a lot: divorce, death, abandonment, an owner who didn’t know what he had, bushfires, and floods. Read the gripping story of the lost and found bus named Priscilla at the Guardian. -via Metafilter
