The Bookmobile's Journey

1993: Drummer Tre Cool's father customizes an old bookmobile for Green Day to use as a tour bus.

1993-94: The bus, which becomes known to fans at The Bookmobile, transports Green Day around the country on their first year of touring. During this time, the band was performing songs from what is still one of their most popular albums, Dookie, at festivals and concerts around the U.S.

1994: The Bookmobile is retired. It sits unused in a field for more than two decades.

Early 2107: Green Day donates The Bookmobile to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish. The car that appeared in the music videos for "Holiday" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is donated as well.

July 2017: West Coast Customs revamps the exterior of the Bookmobile, restoring it back to its original appearance. The interior is left largely untouched, appearing exactly as it was 23 years ago.

August 2017: The Bookmobile and car arrive in Cleveland, where they are displayed for a short time at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

August 21, 2017: Green Day comes to Cleveland, where they are reunited with the Bookmobile and car for the first time in more than two decades. Afterwards, Green Day performs one of their best live shows to date at Blossom.
