I'll get pics up soon!
My trip back was pretty epic. About 800 miles. It came with good tires, a new battery because one was really bad, and a full tank of fuel! It seems to get around 9mpg maybe? I only spent $150 on fuel to get home since it came full. When it got to a quarter tank the first day, I topped it off for $80, and just before I hit florida the next day topped it off again with $75 and still have half a tank. It runs great and cruises at just below 65mph on flat ground.
It has air ride in the rear, and an air operated door. My dad is a trucker so he is searching around for an air ride seat to replace the horrid stock bucket seat. That thing killed my back!
It took me about 16 hours total driving to get from ky to fl. I stopped several times at rest areas to stretch and use the facilities. A good friend followed me back in my car, THANKS RON!!!
One really good sign was that when we picked it up and started it- it hadn't been started in many months and It had been mostly unused for the last three years. But even in the snowy 15 degree weather it started IMMEDIATELY! no coaxing it, no turning over slowly and laboriously- it fired right up like it never sat. It still does.
Since it was snowy and I was ready to get back home, I drove with no plates. To get my temp tag I would have had to drive 4 hours to Frankfort, and that would add nearly a whole day to my trip. None of the troopers noticed and we made it with no issues. Turns out the local tag offices in ky are allowed to issue travel tags, but they don't out of laziness, and they make you drive to Frankfort to the state dmv office one stop shop.
Saw a few cool buses on the way. One deep blue Scenicruiser and a sweet skoolie conversion!
Will post some pics soon. Already got a bunch of the seats out my first day back!
