Ok, after seeing your residence, you don't get to be a redneck anymore.

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

Good job Le Bubba! As I was scrolling thru the pics, as soon as I saw the pic of the bus going up the ramp, I said to myself "I bet the trailer hitch won't clear"-guess I was right!
The underside of the bus looks good -nice + dry. Whats that tag on the transmission? Is it from a rebuilder? These trans are the weak link-if you have a new one in there thats a good thing.
I noticed something different than any other Fords I've seen-whats the 2 squares under the front bumper? It looks like reciever hitches.

Did you mean the small paper with the warning sign on?
I do not know what the tag means my friend.
I will check it tomorrow and take a picture of it so I can show you what it is.

These are indeed 2 receiver hitches to place for example a travel trailer on the right spot.
It could be possible that this is not allowed in belgium on the Belgian roads.
If it is,I must dismount it but we will see about that.

Since there are two, I would be more inclined to think that they are for something like a bicycle rack

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

I wonder if the authorities would mind if you used the front recievers for an ATV or motorcycle rack?

I sure would hate to be paying for all those tires on the low boy trailer as they skuff their way around every corner!?! Jack

This is also not allowed here.

I know that the gouvernement here stinks but we cannot do anything about it.
We are born in the wrong country like I said before.
