Big Trouble in Little China (1986, Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall)
A White 706 bus is used as a tour bus - and apparently gets heavily shot up!

The White Model 706 tour bus was developed specifically for sightseeing in the National Park System of the United States of America and went into service between 1936 and 1940. In the mid 1960s the Yellowstone buses were phased out, and about that time Skagway Streetcar Company of Skagway, Alaska, assembled a fleet of them, until they were sold to Yellowstone National Park in 2000. Duane Brassette adds: "The bus used in the movie was one of the Skagway buses that were sold back to Yellowstone Park in 2000. The little explosive points can still be seen on the bus from where the 'bullets' hit the bus. That bus carried the name 'Hollywood' thereafter."

Check Duane's website The Opentop Bus Company (producers of scale models of the White 706) for more history. Thanks also to Alex Schmidt.
