gussboy ,69 crown nimrod,bus starts after sitting , engine good all things
considered,220 cummins no turb ,going to move from orig location short hop
see if can sqeeze into drive 30 ft ,
no interior yet ,will leave exterior stock .interior needs lots
blank ,has been gutted ,but luckily no structural hack jobs .
Me commercial driver,diesel mechanic ,
dont like cheap mods by rookies to save a buck ,the repairs break or
fail. stick with orig design criteria,with mod for water ,fuel tanks.
long way to go, perhaps get 855 cummins reengine
I am very excited and not a debbie downer about old trucks and parts.

I just LOVE that color combination on your Crown! Is it Almond below the green?

Hi John. Well I've always called it Beige but Almond sounds better so I'll go with that! I must admit I do like the color combination too! It makes the bus look older or classic looking.

Oh cool! Yes, always good to talk Crowns. Think of all the knowledge you will gain at the end of it! Although, I don't think there is an end! Which I enjoy. Good luck buddy.

This probably says more about me than anything else, first thing I thought when I looked at the picture, was "damn those are some sexy tires up front!"
