Tiffany blue is a nice color, Would probably look pretty good on the bus.

If we don't do that color on the shorty, we will on our big bus.

A guy is coming by to look at this shorty today. I'm asking TOP dollar, but it is a fantastic bus. IF he wants it, I'm not gonna be too negotiable. I'll gladly keep this thing and drive the wheels off it!
If it does sell, I'm buying two more!

I'd almost hate to get rid of this bus. It IS really sweet.
But money is money.
I still want THIS bus with 466 and better tranny.

I'm definitely not in any rush to sell.
If I have it long enough to paint it and do some mechanical upgrades, it will likely be our forever bus.

that bus in a 466 is pretty common.. but I have yet to see one with a 643.. im sure they are out there though.. ive seen the newer stuff in 6 window busses with the Overdrives.. but then it seems so many were built with the ill-fated VT-365 and overdrive... there has to be some 466 / allison 2000 shorties out there.. I just havent found them yet..

the 3126 Cat and allison 2000 in a shortie is pretty common

You should drive this thing some time. I'd like your opinion on it. I think it drives amazingly.
The only cats I need are sitting on my couch next to me right now.

I'd take a 466 with ANY tranny in this size bus with air ride and high headroom. But I'm willing to be patient and vigilant, as usual. Not being in any rush gives me good odds.

Kinda off the point, but I really did not know there were wild monkeys in Florida.

Monkeys were harder to get pics from-

Everyone had a good time, even waiting on fuel!

The monkeys were left by the owners of Silver Springs. they're feral and out of control, like every animal people seem to think is ok to release here. The glades are overrun with pythons and the "eradication program" is LAUGHABLE!

Me neither.......that amazed me, so I googled it. Hard to believe they've been in that area for 70 or 80 years and not migrated northward in that time. Of course, maybe it takes that long to build up a population that NEEDS to migrate.

I love to kayak also, so I can definitely see a trip on this river in my future. I still remember the trip on the glass-bottomed boats when I was a kid.
