Oh it's great to watch the bus drive away down that open country road.

I am finally finished with my setup and plan to start prepping for a drive. Going to take a week to figure out how to secure everything and fasten what needs to be, etc.

Looking forward to driving again. Has been two months since i first drove it home.

Great scene isnt it? I love taking that thing for a drive, even though it may only be a 1/4 mile at a time its enough to keep me going on the project. If i didnt get to drive it while the work was going on i probably wouldve lost the passion to keep going.

Hope your travels go well on your trip!

im all about driving... ive put over 5k on my bus in 3 months.. and an 1000 or 1200 mile drive awaits me in the next few days... depending on if I visit a friend or 2 on the way back to ohio with it..

I just plain love driving the bus... i get lots of comments about driving a school bus with the words 'DEV RANDOM' across the top.. lots of Geeks give me thumbs up when they see me...

Yep, and no joke. HF is SLOW! Had her out yesterday to get the blanks for windows I ordered from Blumenthal's Sheet Metal over where Tango has his art shop, BTW gave a "Shave and a Hair Cut" sound out on my air horns as I went by....... LOL! The ONLY time I was able to keep up with traffic was when it rained and everyone ELSE slowed down.......

Yep 45 m.p.h. @ 2K r.p.m. can be a bit stressful on I 19 in Houston.......

So sing it with me........



I can never seem to hit the right key when I sing it.......

cant you run that cat comfortably at 2500 to be able to get 55-60 MPH?
or is 2k about all it likes to do?

I dont drive mine fast.. but I do go 60 and feel comfortable on even 70 MPH zones with it...

All emergency light holes are covered, as well as stop arm holes and the rear door window on the bottom. The black trim we had previously taken off to inspect for rust is back on too, the rivet gun worked perfect.



-more videos coming.
