Arrow How the Hell is there not already a "showoff a picture of your bus" thread?

Unless I somehow missed it, this forum is a unicorn in that its the only forum I've belonged to that doesn't have a mega-thread dedicated to pictures/showing off your bus.

Let's fix that.

Post your favorite picture or three of your bus or a bus you admire/covet.

I know pictures are kinda clunky on this website but lets try to keep them a reasonable size and correctly rotated (you can upload to imgur free and easy) and keep non-picture posts to a minimum!

To start things off, I don't own a bus yet, but here are a couple of 'the ones who got away'. I still kick myself for not jumping on either of these (though in both cases it was the right decision to pass them up)


First up: 1990ish International 3800 Bluebird 5 Window, 21ft bumper to bumper, DT360





Next up, my favorite from the Sonoma auction: 2003 Ford E-350/450 Girardin, 5 window, 6.5ft width, 7.3L

All I can see is a blank post, if you uploaded a picture I'm not sure it worked, unless there is a problem on my end.

Tried a link from my website, guess that doesn't work.

Did your bus come with that rack thing on the back of the roof?

Do these pictures need to be pretty? I could post pics of my bus, but it would be like somebody posting a video of their open heart surgery on facebook.

Top picture is how it came. It was an activities bus. I'm going to mount 4 solar panels on it.

I had an 85 Thomas 40' CE on a Ford Chassis with a gasser. Never did get pics... digital cameras weren't as common then.
Years later I got this 1992 Ward Senator in KY-







Then I scored this sweet lil 1998 Amtran shorty from Aurora CO-



I love driving chicks around in a bus!


Picking up appliances in a shorty is a breeze if you have a lift. Sucks that they rattle so much!



After the 98 I landed this 2004 CE300 with higher hp DT and allison 2000.


I've removed SO MUCH of this stuff over the years-






This shorty even participated in our wedding!


Not a bus, but a skoolie... A good friend we made through this forum performed the ceremony. It was a SKOOLIE wedding all the way. Even had Another forum member driving the bus for me and the groomsmen!

Hopeful, but a lot depends on how much i get done on the bus before then. Right now the inside is just framed. I don't have plumbing, electrical, or hvac started yet. Plus we are prepping our house for sale so can't really commit to it just yet.

This one wasn't mine... but I had it for a year or so. Pulled the seats and did some maintenance.


Then I got my favorite bus yet... To me its a dream bus.

My bus partner-in-crime Shaun lol

I suspect that's a common route number.
