Crowns Crowns any one own a Crown ???

Crown buses are super great buses. I tried several other makers before I discovered Crown. Anyone speak Crown? Crown buses with the mighty Cummins is a tough combination. I'm gathering parts to change the trans from a Fuller 10 speed to a Allison automatic with 4 gears. I'l be shiftless soon. Frank

crowns were built in california, so ya there a west coast thing. there is a few that filtered up to the north west. i am sure there scattered all over. they call them the cadilac of skoolies. people that have drove them for fun and for a job swear by them. i think the last twinkie style crown was made in 1992.
