Well today my Family and I took the leap into our first bus

1995 Carpenter 71passenger 5.9 cummins 4 speed ally hydraulic brakes(disc all way around) with driveshaft service parking brake.( doesn't really keep it from rolling)

I know nothing about it except it has new tires 131K miles
fully insulated walls and roof (alaskan package I'm guessing)
Ex school district bus and we bought it from a church who bought it from the district.

so far I love it ....kinda need to figure out a few things like top speed but its all there and in decent shape.

any info on the bus or things to look out for would be awesome
Thanks! and glad to be part of the group!
