Bus 12 is born

Bus 12 is born. Thanks to all who answered my questions this last year. You can find us tailgating at Texas A&M University and going to most away games as well.

As you can see, it's an '91 International Ward. I learned a bunch in the process. Main thing for those considering beginning... allow yourself plenty of time. My group did this between May and September.

Cool looking bus.

The windshield looks diffrent, and the wipers come up from the bottom. I've never seen (or maybe never noticed) one like that before. I think it looks kinda cool.

That is the same as it is on my bus, maybe its an International thing. Wonder if the weather stripping and glass from a bus just like that one would fit mine.

Isn't it more of a Ward body thing?
I too have the international but mine is a Bluebird body and mine are not curved that way. I have seen chevys and fords with a Ward body where the winshield is that way.

You are correct, I don't know what I was thinking.

You all are right on--it's a Ward body.

I'm sorry prof, I don't have any good pics of the inside. We put it into use so quickly, and I don't have it with me here in Houston, so I haven't taken any good ones. I'll try to take some this weekend and post them. It's definately been a lot of fun. Learned a lot and still learning a lot more.

For example, what's the maintenance schedule for fluid changes? It's a DT466 International Diesel. Thanks to all.
