Lol to be honest I don't think any 92 bus really rides all that great without a lil attention and improvements to the suspension

My 92 bus rides REALLY well.
Air ride out back helps that a lot. This bus rides like a dream compared to the Thomas I used to have.

I don't know how your state regulates it but I've been vanpooling for 27 yrs here in California with 13 other people, 140 mile round trip, They allow us to classify them as cummuter busses so we until last yr didn't have to pay bridge tolls but you go over 14 people then you have to get class B license & have DOT physical & be considered commercial vehical.

Actually, in California, a Class B is required for over 9 passengers. Do they have an exemption for vanpools?

A large batch of them hit Govdeals awhile back, pretty sure there's at least a few still on there. They're somewhere in Florida I think.

The Vistas are really cheap, probably because they're so ugly.

Yes they do because their not for profit, if you own them yourself & I had 6 at one time your allowed to make a few hundred extra for a maintance account but if you run them for profit then you need the Class B

My motivation for doing it was I got to write off allthe depreciation on taxes plus it paid for all my gas for my personal vehicals & covered allmy insurance & phonebills

I have the 7.3 IDI in an e350 ambulance. Is a stout, simple motor. I'll 2nd the BERU/Motorcraft only glow plugs- under $100/set. Braided metric fuel return lines and o rings will cause lost prime, so may need those- ~50 on ebay. DIY in a weekend, even in a van. soak those plugs w/ pb blaster first, gentle.

Not fast, but will run a long life.

I need to get rid of that ambulance. Was a NASA vehicle.
