Ashtray

So I noticed the other day....my bus has a factory ashtray in the dash. Granted it's not in a convenient location really, i thought it was funny. I figure this is because Ford built the firewall and dash, but I thought it was an unlikely option on a 1989 bus....unfortunately there is no lighter there as a power outlet. Anyone else have an ashtray?

Funny you should say that as my bus was owned by Lakehead Electric who operated in the mines of northern Minnesota so my whole bus was like that too There was lots of history in the cracks around the seats, etc as well....good ol' stuff like Big League Chew envelopes, Surge bottle caps, etc.

My bus also has an ashtray and no cigarette lighter. Maybe they thought the tray was so useful they would just leave it in.

I wish mine had a lighter All I have is the ashtray which is in a terribly inconvenient location anyway. I had to instead put an outlet right by my seat so I can use the 120v charger for my cell phone.

Well I can remember when I was a kid, our bus driver was smoking constantly. There was one gravel road we went down with a big bump in it. The guy would hit that bump as fast as that bus would go. Anybody in the back would hit the ceiling. We thought it was great. We threw stuff, made spit wads, were loud as hell and that dude just kept on driving and smoking. If we did something really bad, we got paddled at school with a big wooden plank. Those were the good ol days. Now, if my kid acts up in school, he gets a "time out" or he may miss 5 minutes of recess. BEAT HIS ASS I say. But no, everybody is a bunch of nancies now days. Matt

Anyone who hits a child, in any way, shape or form, even once, under any circumstances should be publicly and horribly tortured to death.

I like the way you think, except I dont think my dad should be publicly tourtured for spanking me.

I love my dad, he just came from a differnt way of bringing up kids. Apparently spanking a kid with a belt is encouragement for them to do what you say. I was against my parents every day of my youth until I moved out. Spanking didnt do **** for me.

Apparently he thought kids are like dogs and you can train them with force, BAHAHAHA. I still remember when he actually made a reference to the psychology behind his parenting. I remember him 'training' our hunting dog with a choke chain instead of love. I remember him making a reference that this obviously didnt work on his kids.

I may be 27 now, but I still take delight in the fact that I am nothing what my parents had envisioned their kids would be like if they "raised them properly"

I think my parents are damned fools sometimes, but Im sure they'd say the same about me. Either way they support and love me regardless of my decisions in life, and thats what tells me they are good parents. I dont think spanking your kids, or even playing "Im the boss" is a good way to raise kids. They will just rebel against you. I know I did.
