CCUC, Inc. Develops New Specialty Bus Division

Company Retains GNS Tech, Inc. to Assist in Design and Manufacture of New Offering

SPRINGFIELD, MO--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - Classic Costume Company, Inc. (OTCBB: CCUC), a diversified business-development, marketing and manufacturing corporation, today announces it will expand its product line to include a series of "specialty buses" for commuter, transit, limousine and sightseeing purposes.

CCUC has retained the services of GNS Tech, Inc. (GNS), a specialty bus design and manufacturing consulting firm based in Ozark, MO. GNS representative, Mr. Robert J. Haswell, and his team offer over 24 years of combined expertise in design, construction and sales of specialty buses. Imperial Coach Builders, CCUC's wholly owned subsidiary, has been contracted to build the buses from the ground-up for the U.S. and Canadian markets.

Mr. Haswell and GNS will utilize designs already listed on the pre-approved "Border Crossing List" for Transport Canada, the Canadian governmental agencies responsible for developing regulations, policies and services regarding transportation.

GNS is also armed with a complete array of testing equipment to ensure compliance with all U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards as dictated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In addition to its extensive knowledge and manufacturing expertise, GNS brings to Imperial Coach Works close to $2,000,000.00 (two million dollars U.S.) in potential contracts. This revenue stream plus GNS's extensive industry and operational knowledge will set Imperial Coach Builders well ahead of the curve in terms of its competition and will help catapult Imperial to the top of the specialty coach arena.

"We've designed and built a number of different vehicles over the years including several unique limousines and a line of custom hot rods," said Gary Spaniak, Chief Executive Officer of CCUC, Inc. "Delving into this new product line is a very exciting new chapter for us in the evolution and diversification of our company."

CCUC is also in the process of developing a 100 percent pure-electric, zero emissions drive-train for all its vehicles. Innovations such as this, coupled with existing successful lines of limousines, fleet-livery and custom vehicles, clearly positions CCUC as a top player and innovator in the custom-vehicle industry.
