I suspect that's a common route number.

When i bought it Thanksgiving 2017, and as of today.

I lusted after this flatnose for a looooong time, before I finally decided on a conventional......still think it's the coolest bus I've ever seen.

Your bus has given me the courage to paint the inside of my wheel wells yellow. It's the only yellow on my bus people will be able to see unless I'm running them over.

My newest addition. This will not be converted but will instead be used for a dirt-track school bus race this fall! Yellow Bus Sales (aka Mike & B Sales) agreed to sponsor the bus and sold it to me for a very reasonable price, since it had been sitting in the lot for over a year with no takers.
Next thing on the to-do list is a new pair of batteries after it wouldn't start this morning. Next weekend it will get a shiny new (used) air horn and will hopefully have some of the seats removed as well.

Short bus

Here’s our little bluebird. We had bunks in it for a few years but just removed everything to give it a more finished look.

1996 International Thomas. 7.3 diesel with 5 speed manual transmission. Converted it to travel with my family of 10. Nothing too fast or fancy but lots of great memories. Have been to 40 of the lower 48 states and 1 Canadian province.

Maybe I’m not as good at technology as I thought? This picture insists on being upside down. Sorry.

This is awesome to see! I have a cousin that we camp with that has 11 kids. I keep telling them they need to quit driving two vehicles pulling a travel trailer and get a bus!
