Well, last Thursday my preacher and I went for a ride in a 1989 flatnosed Bluebird with a 5.9 liter Cummins and an auto transmission. The local bus company has it for sale with 150,000 miles on it. Our church needs another bus for hauling the kids in on Sundays. I wish I could afford to buy it for myself since it rode excellent and I really like the way a forward controlled bus turns. It's a bit noisy with the engine in the front, right under your feet, but I figure we can get some insulation and mount it under the doghouse to quiet it a bit, if we decide to pick it up. Anyone out there have any experience with doing this? It also has a pre-heater to warm the engine which is a pretty cool feature.
Not the most exciting thing to write about, but I thought I'd post a little note.
It was exciting to me since I really like the flatnose buses and I wish I could buy it. I don't know where I'd park it.... Guess I need an 80 acre lot somewhere to park all of my toys.
