Newbies with a New Bus!

Hello everyone,

Thanks for such an amazing resource, we are going to need it ;)

I am a student in Complementary Alternative Medicine specializing in nutrition and herbalism, and my fiance is from Wales and is a graphic artist that designs some amazing graphics for businesses!

Thankful that my dad drove this thing home for us, because I have no idea how to do it yet but just had to jump on the opportunity we found on Ebay only an hour away from us. We are the proud new owners of a 1988 GMC Bluebird Bus. We don't have plans yet, but are hoping to get it going some time this week.

Glad to have found this forum!

Oh goodies another GMC! V8 gas motor? Pictures please!

Driving 'em is a simple matter of being careful and trying not to flip with excitement!

You're right, except that I'm from WV and HE is from UK. I loved it over there though, Wales is absolute magic! Haven't gotten to visit Scotland yet.

It's a 8.2 Liter Detroit Diesel.
I am sure you're right! I have driven pretty large Uhauls, but didn't have to worry about the air brakes.

Hello and welcome. Go to the home page and the "how to" section. Find "how to post pictures". It explains it there. I'm not a tech nerd, and even I was able to figure it out with the instructions there... again- welcome to the madness..
