(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- If you're a Bears fan, you probably have a T-shirt, a hat and maybe a jersey.

But how about a "Bears Bus?"

If you have $7,900 and love the Bears, Steve Berning could be your guy.

He's selling a 1978 Ford school bus which, for years, has been known as the "Bears Bus.” The orange-and-blue vehicle has been a mainstay at tailgate parties at Soldier Field.

Berning has been a Bears season ticket-holder for about 20 years. He said the bus still runs great, but now it is someone else’s turn to have fun.

Family members and friends have ridden the bus with him. Sometimes, he said, fans have preferred to just stay on the bus in the Soldier Field parking lot and monitor the game on TV or radio.

The bus is parked along Butterfield Road in Naperville.

“All the guys want it but then say, 'I have to talk to my wife.’ Then I never see them again because the wives always say, ‘No,’” Berning said.
