Re: Nyitro Bus

I dont know Smitty. The old sirens were really easy to imitate, but the new ones dont sound like a simple whistle that the average person can pull off. My father still talks about how much he misses whistling into a PA on his car and watched everyone in front of him pulling to the side of the road. But that was 30+ years ago. ^.^

Re: Nyitro Bus

A good pressure washer will do wonders. Going to make it into our race jeep tow rig, motorhome. Got tired of camping in the rain and not being to comfy. So we'll see how it goes. I was surprized that everthing works on it, sanders, PA, lights heaters, everthing,

Re: Nyitro Bus

That body is not a Thomas. Looks like a Superior or Sheller/Globe?

Re: Nyitro Bus

That's definitely a Carpenter, no mistaking that roof cap. What confused people is that you put "Thomas" as the Coachwork in your forum profile.
