Re: which one?

As for driving the stick - if you can do it in your car, you can do it with the bus. Every vehicle's clutch is a little different, so you'd be prepared for that. I know on my International/Bluebird the worst of my issues was the different shift pattern (R on the bus is where 1st is on my truck, so I have to -think- at times ).

Personally, I went out of my way to get a standard, so that's where I'd lean, although getting the genny and AC is pretty cool on the other bus ...

until you have to lay out 200+ for each the tire! Retreads are a gamble, at best. If you drive where it is hot,they are not worth the money.

Re: which one?

Only thing about the Freightliner I hear is there are a lot of Freightliner only parts in those things.
