I'm looking to find this unique font in this logo:

Great Lakes Motorcoach Logo

I can't seem to find it anywhere since most of the letters are unique. I've tried uploading it to the first 5 links on Google for "find font by image" but nothing comes close.

The bounty yielded some interesting answers, but nothing that fit exactly. Matt and Sam's combined can get you pretty close. – Brendan Jun 11 '13 at 13:14

I think Advertisers Gothic should be very close.

only thing that comes close is the A. – Darth_Vader Jun 9 '13 at 23:24
@Matt_2.0, :) Yeah. But I think a combination of all of these suggestions would do the job. Illustrator can be used to transform the outlined font. – Sam Rad Jun 9 '13 at 23:32
Stretch this vertically and use the C and O from Stage Serial or Revue BT, and that's the closest yet – user568458 Jun 10 '13 at 9:46

Its a modified font called Revue BT Regular. All they did was add a stroke:

The G, T, and L look pretty close, but A, R, E look way off. – I like php Jun 3 '13 at 13:59
sorry I've searched all the sites I know and bounced the question to two boards. It might be a software dedicated font. – Darth_Vader Jun 3 '13 at 16:22
Okay well thanks. What would you suggest I do to get font? Draw it in illustrator or photoshop? – I like php Jun 3 '13 at 16:28
are you trying to duplicate the logo exactly? I would import it in Illustrator and reproduce the artwork. I would assume this is for the buses, per the search about the company? – Darth_Vader Jun 3 '13 at 16:43

font family is on stage serial medium

you can get that font here

Similar style, but not the same font - particularly, A, K, R... – user568458 Jun 4 '13 at 8:38

It's an art nouveau / arts & crafts sort of thing with a hefty dose of 70s ITC. A little bit of Goudy, a little bit of Benguiat. The A is clearly an identifier but within that subset, the odd-shaped and historically inaccurate O is a good way to spot this design. Looks like two art nouveau Cs grafted together.

I'm not aware of a perfect match but it's obviously not hand drawn. My guess is that it comes from one of the many half-baked freeware font sites. You might try digging around FontSquirrel (not all bad, btw).
