Re: just want to say"We are 100% of the way there"BASE BUS P

So it was a sad day Friday...the end of a legacy

I built this over the winter years ago, in prep for the first ever race in a national forest east of the Mississippi river

I built it on a very strict budget and in my backyard...so I could represent Planetisuzoo and gives folks something to look at every day,it was fun and she was an absolute blast to raise hell in...we had many good rides and many great races....

here is a few pics





if your bored and wanna read the build thread

Good news is that I have the cash to buy a bus....now to find one...have looked at a few and going again tonite (fingers crossed) if snow isn't to bad

I still have a few things to get ride of, and right know I am right at 20,000 pounds of scrap to buy a big heavy bus...the journey takes the next step
