List of Bus Yards & Graveyards

Have you considered a place to list bus graveyards and folks who often sell skoolies? I know of one in GA that has hundred's (thousands?) of skoolies of all types (and a few transits & highway coaches). My husband got some spare rims for our Eagle there. No website, just name address & phone (I had enough sense to write down the hours open since they are closed on weekends). This guy just buys them up when they are auctioned off (David chatted him up while dickering over the price of the rims). I saw a nice Bluebird All-American there that I would love to have. Just need hubby to call and find out price.....

It's a long ways from Savannah ..... This place is near Gainesville (look for the north end of Lake Sidney Lanier) and he will be closed until July 12. The road it's on is a 4 lane (985...on the west side, the place covers several acres)

IF your bus is the standard flat glass that most skoolies have, you're in luck. Just call around to a few glass places and ask them if they can cut you out a new piece, or if they know of a glass place that can.

I just replaced the windshield in my Ford/Ward for a very good price. I forget the exact amount, perhaps $165?

Thanks for the tip. I've been trying the junkyard route but having no luck so I guess I'll do that. I can take out the old windshield, which is just cracked, and bring it in for an exact fit.

Not necessarily a bus boneyard, but one that salvages trucks/parts:

Woburn Truck Parts, 1095R Main St. Woburn MA.
781-933-1546
Saw stacks of rear ends there (they use bus frames for the racks), front ends, engines, trannies, you name it.

Don't know if that'll help any.....
