Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

Interesting. I live in Texas and it seems that just about every state has school bus depots, yards, etc except Texas, well maybe I found one dealer in Houston

Does anyone know about a place near Dallas where I can go see if I can find a bus?

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

Whoa....

I just read through this thread, and saw some folks had been talking about replacing broken windows with ordinary glass....

Forgive a new member for presuming to give advice, but....

On side or back glass, balance economy vs. safety, but for a windshield- get an actual automotive safety glass replacement.
Standard glass turns into hundreds of foot-long spears which fly at you at highway speed, should anything bounce up and strike it while you're in motion.

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

I don't think anyone recommended using ordinary glass, I think they were talking about the windshield being flat glass, therefore easier to cut to fit by a glass shop. I don't think a glass shop would even install ordinary glass in place of safety glass for liability reasons.

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

I hope so...What an ugly mental picture popped into my head when I thought of a windshield-shatter at 60MPH, with plate glass.

I didn't know it was possible to purchase dimensional sheets of safety glass, which could then be cut to size...

Re: List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

I dont think there's a bus wrecking yard in Nor Cal, but if anyone knows a good place to score a 1993-1995 DT466, that would be great! I only know of Valley truck in Fresno. There's a bus wrecker down by LA somewhere(so I've heard), I just dont know the name.

Acme in Stockton on Wilson has a lot of motors, but not for cheap.

Oh, I know! I've seen their prices.
I get better pricing from Valley Truck, but at 35-4500, it's still close to buying a whole bus.
