Thought you might like this picture of the school bus I took last week behind Max's shop up against the back of the building. Might be good if you need some parts at some point in the future:

Wow, it looks like the same "R" series Cowl, same size and brand, Superior, as the one in Calif. too bad about it's condition though.

Yeah, too bad. If I was thinking I would have looked closer for a script or the like telling the brand. Or even better, gone back down in daylight. Somebody remind me next year:)

It looks pretty complete except for all the glass is out. Couldn't tell late at night if any of the seats were in it because it was packed ful of cra... er, goodies. Here's an interior shot I leaned in and took:


Yes it's rough, but there's a ton of impossible to find bus-specific parts on it. Good to keep in the back of the mind;)

Easy now, Linda was with me! So you know I was being good:)

(Although inexplicably, she was somewhat less interested in the bus than I. Women.)

Thanks, but no thanks- at this point at least.
A few reasons why~

That one looks to have a different body on it then the one I found.
I've got a lead on an 'M' with the same body that is much closer.
The one I found has a V8 (and other mods) in it now.
I can't even get shipping quotes for the one I already found-
and it's only 900 miles from here!!!
But none of it matters--
the deal with mine is falling apart by the day anyway.

Story of my life, this one...

When I see that all I can picture is a cool rv to tote the kids in on vacations
