1980 Chevrolet/Carpenter Conventional 66 passenger

Man...what a cool website. Glad I finally found a website with people who have an intrest in converting school buses. Here's the story with mine. Bought it from a local head start "sealed bid" type auction. I was the highest bidder. The bus had not run in about 5-6 years when I bought it, but it only had 63,000 miles on it, and supposedly ran great when it last ran. I put in a new battery, did an oil change, poured tranny fluid in the engine cylinders so as to not have a dry start, fuel tank and fuel line flushed, and she fired right up and ran pretty good! A new set of plugs made her run even better. Still haven't converted it all the way yet, but I can camp out of it! :D

Welcome to the club, or insanity as one person mentioned! I've only just gotten my own skoolie, but I have found a wealth of knowledge here.
