Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

Sounds like to me your gonna have blast. I haven't had a bus for a long time,had one back in the mid and late 70's. Just got a 85 G.M.C. 6000 series 366C.I.D. engine with a Allision auto.60 pass. Ive been really blessed with people that have got second hand R. V. parts and appliances. Having a welding service is also handy ,I love the people you meet on the road. Drop me a line any time.

Bussin it up has put me in touch with some of the people that I would consider my tribe. The skoolie gathering should build some more steam. It would be great if it got to be a big thing. Waaaay fun!

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

Good luck with your project. My old girl is also a 90 GMC with a Ward body but our snouts are very different. I see a lot of similarities in your switches. The 8.2 GM I have seems very dependable but I wish it had a turbo. I have not had any problems out of the tranny. Our conversion is pretty far along and we have been enjoying it. I look forward to more pictures of your project.

Glad I don't have a homeowners association.

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

I'm in colorado, and I have built three busses. Well right now I'm on the third. I have enjoyed building them maybe more then using them. I've been all over with them, and the best part is where the guy with the most expensive moterhome want to see my bus. The best catch phrase is,"excuse me but do you have any gray pupon?".

Yes, but its even better when someone uses it on you and you toss some of those Gray Pupon packets into their window... I did this to a friend when he pulled up along side me and asked. I just said Yep, tossed, and they drove off.
