Hello from Brookshire Texas

Hi All.

Recently bought a 1978 Converted Blue Bird...what a find.

Been going through the many systems and finding information sources for them. Looking for a manual on the bus itself. The old bus manuals don't seem to be online. Only found some dating back to 1990. I believe it is called an All American...but that might be a later designation.

Pictures worth a thousand words so here goes.

Rad old bus, man.
I'll see if any of the manuals I have go back that far.

Howdy --- pretty sweet looking conversion you found there. I'm in Houston and I used to fly out of Brookshire. Nice area.

I believe I have seen your bus in town!

I'd LOVE to stop by sometime and make cheat notes for my build with your permission!
