WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - An old bus is giving new life to a downtown Wilmington nightclub.

A few months ago the owners of Odessa purchased a 1970's public bus that spent decades on the streets of Wilmington.

They gave it a makeover and turned it into an accessory in their club.

Half of the bus is now a DJ booth and a VIP lounge that looks like it crashed through the wall.

There are speakers in place of rearview mirrors and strobe lights instead of headlights.  Smoke also puffs out from underneath the bumper.
