San Jose City Lines Bus #6512, just as I remember it in junior high days. After the local busses came under the Santa Clara County Transit District in 1973, they were all eventually repainted in SCCTD colors. 6512 continued in regular service until its retirement in 1980, but it was retained by the district and not sold off like its many sisters, like its twin #6511. In the late 1980s, it was restored with the help of transit fans and repainted with the San Jose City Lines livery.
