I came across photos from 1990, with my first school bus that I bought to move from Hershey PA to Orlando... Yup, it was a 1970 Ford (Blue Bird I believe) with a straight 6 gas engine, 4 speed & air brakes. It took about 30 hours & many quarts of oil to go 1000 miles! That Landcruiser made it a bit top heavy! Thats me on the hood with all the hair (remember this was 1990!)
This was on I-95, no faster than 55mph!
We eventually drove this bus empty to Daytona Beach for a day & cruized it up & down the beach picking up chicks... We had beach chairs on the back & man it was a blast till we got pulled over...on the beach...10 mph speed limit...cop told us everyone had to sit ON
the bed of the truck as he was afraid someone might fall off, then laughed at the bus and sent us on our way!
Scratching head...why do I always end up with blue busses...
