Old Newbies with bus.

I been reading the post on here, since August, when I bought my bus. I see some people put their age, I'm 79 last June. I see people put the state they are in, not a town. I live in Goldsboro, NC If I was close to someone in NC, I could ride my motorcycle to meet them and have a look at their bus. Why did I buy a bus at 79. I have a 31' motorhome in the driveway, that I camp in. Have wanted a bus for many years, to make into a camper. Now I have a bus in driveway that I do some work most days. Have the seats out, have top painted, have the light working. Have insurance & tag since I bought bus, so I can drive it any time. About all I know about the bus, it is a Chevrolet Diesel 60, on a plate on hood. It has a 8.2 engine. It automatic. It has a Braun handicap lift, if anyone looking for a lift. Better quit for now, my finger is tired.

Nope, but I've heard FL was quite the destination in the 50's. I didn't come along until the end of the 70's.
