Re: trying to find a picture of a specific bus....

I did stop in for lunch there today, but didn't shoot any pictures. She told me to come by on Monday and she'll let me take a few pictures of the inside too...

I found another picture I had online for that roof, I did stop in today and take some others but haven't had a chance to down load them from the camera and upload them to the web....

I bet they kept some of the orriginal roof intact, and angled it up to match the new roof. In doing it probably made the front cap lean out a little.

Re: trying to find a picture of a specific bus....

The last post above is correct, they did keep the forward section of the roof intact... and that slant was there, it's an older Thomas conventional, you'll see once you look at the inside picture. I believe it was a straight roof bus, and they raised everything aft of that first section. He had a shop to work in and used a hoist on the rear and jacks on the front.











NOTE: That would be owner Dave in the bottom right picture. I don't know if they have named this beast anything or not, but since their restaurant is called Razorback's, I'll call it the Razorback until they come along and tell me otherwise. I also told them about this website, so perhaps they will check in eventually and answer your questions.

He's 2 doors down from me and my city is listed at the bottom of the sig line...

If you are ever in Chesapeake Va just visit Razorback's Pub & Restaurant on Holland Blvd, buy dinner and the woman behind the counter (Francine) is the other half of the equation... Mention the bus and maybe she'll take you for a tour of it...
