Re: MCI buses

Suggest you go to a MCI and/or highway bus conversion site. I've got one bookmarked as BNO BBS.

Personally, I'm in love with the Neoplan. Though I guess I'll keep my Skoolie, unless it starts raining money.

I don't like the Jimmys, esp. the '71. Just to many broken rings for me.

Re: MCI buses

Whereabouts in Minnesota are you? As I understand it the rust problem with those things isn't with the skin, but with everything behind it.

Re: MCI buses

School buses are made of galvanized steel more often than not. A good look at mine and you'd know it's seen some winters, but you'd never guess it has lived in Minnesota its whole life and was even used (abused?) in the iron mines. Just a point to ponder.

Once a ranger, always a ranger. I KNEW I couldn't be the only person from God's Country on the board.
