Hello everyone looking forward to spending some time on this forum.
Well heres our story:
Two of my roomates and I all went in on a bus. Its going to mainly used for going to our football games and used for home base while tailgating. Last year we acuired 30 some student tickets to a bowl game and sold them and made a pretty good profit.
Its a '88 IHC Thomas "shorty"
7.? I wanna say 7.3 or 7.4 diesel I forget at the moment
Got it from the school bus surplus in NC Buncombe county great people
there was a nice surprise when got there to look at it had dual AC, all the history records. Full tank of fuel and new tires. So we got it.
Color scheme, it will look like a giant helmet so mainly orange and blue and some Gator logos on thes sides.
Take all but 1 or two rows of seat out and build some couches and tables in the back.
It will have a 4-5kw generator for tailgating along with a kegerator huge stereo and some tvs
The trip from NC to Florida went great. Out only problem is its only does 55 due to the "moutain" gearing. It was gouverned at 45 but the mechanic took it off for us b4 we left.
Florida for the most part is flat. so we will be looking to do something about the speed. not really for going fast just so when on the high way we dont get run over. most people do 80 85 here on I-75 it be nice to do about 65.
For the most part we have everything we need. We just need a generator some sweat and muscle.
SO Know I have a few quetions.
Is there anything I should keep an eye out on the engine and tranny? From what I have read what we have seems to be a pretty good setup.
What would the pice of a rear end go for any one have any ideas?
well I will keep you all posted on how our work goes thanks and take care.
