My 1974 Chevrolet 7 window

I bought a 1974 Chevrolet Blue Bird 48 passenger. It came from the factory gas powered by what I do not know. It currently has a 350 propane conversion with a 3 speed Alison transmission. I drove it home to Prince George BC from Fort Nelson BC. I had to drive with some windows open, the exhaust "Y" pipe was broken. I'm currently stripping out defunct wiring and getting ready to send it off for government inspection. I'm also doing a detailed drawing in Google sketchup.

Yep...I can even find a few for my 70 year old. Thank goodness there are a lot of old Stovebolts still around.

Oh yeah she's a beauty, goodness. Mmmm 350 motor. Ain't but a block, alternator and a carb. Nothing could break on it that a days work can't fix.

No computers going wacky, no sensors misreading pressure, voltage, current, etc. and shutting down the entire operation because they're not receiving the required signal, even though everything is just fine. Ahhhh, they don't make 'em like that anymore.
