really need help.
I have no idea what the hell i am doing. But i am seriously thinking of doing a small conversion/motorcycle hauler. Here's where i need help. I cannot find any info on the 2 buses i have thought of. 1) the bluebird c1 fe trans shuttle with 5.9 Cummins and 545. I would like to know how these are on the high way, mpg, speed expected and general drivability. And the other which i cannot even find a reference to is a 98 Collins pusher 26 passenger with a 5.9cummins and Allison 545 Owner says 10 mpg, governed @ 62 mph. Absolutely nothing on them, or Collins ever having built them. And are Collins buses crap? I have seen only a few references to Collins and mostly not favorable. Nice looking thing, but i love the utility looks of the c1FE. any help out there? I plan on driving it fairly frequently locally and at least 2 cross or semi cross country trips a year. I work in the marine field and the 5.9 Cummins are know as bulletproof, and from what i can see with 545 less so, but acceptable.
Are there any reference sites to buses? I mean i am actually looking at buses as they drive by now, but usually very very little reference to construction, issues,drivability, etc etc. Any help would be great. And i may be stupid, but i am not lazy i have looked on the internet for days. I am an info junky when i am about to embark on some wacko scheme, in which this qualifies.
thanks all this project could be a ball if i can find the right rig.
