Re: Looked At 3 Buses Today !!!!

Arrrr The Snow !!!!!!
Since I went looking at these girls ... We had 24 & a bit more inches ... Our snow just don't melt , it keeps growing till we get above freezing .... Then melts away at a slow slow pace .
So much for getting one of them out to have a good look at just yet ey .

Re: Looked At 3 Buses Today !!!!

Is that a 9-speed stick I see? (I'm almost drooling here.) But I would need a higher roof, it's too far away, and I'm not ready to buy.

I never understood why Thomas made some buses with shorter roof.

Thomas isn't the only one! Also another reason is probably good to buy from a school surplus, maintenance records and prompt recall repairs.

That looks like the Spicer 5-speed that International used forever.
