President Ford Assassination Attempt Video Tape Released

The Eastern District Federal Historic Society petitioned for and received a tape made of President Ford giving a deposition about Squeaky Fromme's attempt on his life.  Portions of the tape were played at her trial and then stashed away.  The tapes were sought by the society which is dedicated to preserving the history of the Sacramento Federal Court to be able to share with the public.

There are also links to vintage articles written by the Sacramento Bee about the incident and a couple of pdf's on President Ford's diary at the above link.

Charlie's Bread Truck?

I was watching one of those videos of the girls singing while sitting on the corner. When the camera pans out in one scene, there is a bread truck parked by where they are sitting. I know there was a van there for them to sleep in, etc.


I was wondering if this is the bread truck that Charlie was driving with Stephanie Schram when they went down to San Diego. I'm not sure what year the van was. Can anybody shed light?
