does anyone know where I can get 'S3800' hood Emblems in good shape? mine were missing from the getgo.. or never existed.. seems some busses never had them, or maybe they were installed badly and always flew off?

Well, you could come have a look at my bus if you'd like. I'll grill you a bison steak.

I'm a Java/web guy, so we're cousins but not brothers. You can have my share of the assembly language. I'll get your data securely moved to Moscow or Beijing for you.

As for hacking an Allison transmishkin, Don't Do That! None of the other kids will let you sit at their lunch table. They'd laugh at you behind your back. You won't get invited to any more of the skookie bus get-togethers. NOBODY around here would see any utility in knowing anyone who could unlock the mythical Allison overdrive gears for them!
</sarcasm>

If I achieve my dream of finding/buying an ISC/3060 setup, you'll be the first person I call.

I was thinking myself about hacking an allison.. or at least learning more about it.. mind you I should at least drive my bus the 1100 miles home before i automatically say that the 545 is worthless.. im just listening to those here talk about it.. but I swear I had a 545 in my ast bus.. (isnt the 545 the one with the cool "whistle" frm first to second?") and that bus ran just fine.. now granted I had a somewhat "tinkered" 454 in that bus so I could rev it up to 5800 RPM if I needed to for speed.. so perhaps being limited to 2700 (I think a DT360 is 2700?) might make me sooner wish to swap to a nice 6 speed allison.. then crank out the DT a little...

BUT first things first and that will be running the 1100 miles and then getting ICE COLD A/C! installed.. then can worry about minor things such as horsepower and transmissions..

If you don't like red meat, we can have a quiche made up for you at the local bakery.

Seriously though, what do you like?
We've been into meats you can't find at the local grocer these days. Bison, kangaroo, elk...
There's a REALLY nice Thai place in Orlando, too.

Just out of curiosity- have you ever eaten a ribeye from a bison?
Its epic, man.
Can grill up some burgers or something though, no worries there.

Try beefalo if you can find it. Medium rare with a slab of cheddar, salt and pepper, a side of home made garlic pickles (brined, not vinegar) and thick-cut fries with seasoned salt.... Mmmmmz

Dang it, I just made myself hungry...

I tried a bison burger once.. didnt care for it.. was at a restaraunt..
im adventurous in many ways but food is NOT one of them.. I want plain jane all the way... if I eat a burger its with cheese and bacon, no pickles,sauces,lettus,mayo or any of that junk...

im definitely a product of the take-out-world we live in.. when I travel i do try and hit up local restaraunts as opposed to chains all the time.. but I tend to pick them carefully and read the menu on the door if its posted...

I rarely drink alcohol.. the occasional whiskey unless ive got to drive even a block within 8 hours then nada..

I drink a lot of espresso, water, soda(pop in ohio), and Iced tea...
