I think I'm in love

I'm not gonna be able to buy this so I point it out to the community. It's more of a coach than a school bus, but everything I've read about the Bluebird LTC40 says it's "based on the successful Wanderlodge". Detroit Diesel Series 60 12.7 liter engine, which might actually be a "million mile engine". Tag axle, air bag suspension, 175 gallon tank. I'm wondering about the lack of any belts on the engine, but there could be any number of explanations for that.


I've got people showing up in a week-and-a-half to tear my side yard a new one in preparation for pouring the foundation for my new workshop; this is not a forgiveness-vs-permission situation. I'd get shot. Anyways, my research seems to indicate that this will go for between 10K and 12.5K. But a fellow can always dream, can't he?

That's quite a busy dashboard for a bus. Missing belts suggests to me something was taken off the engine that is belt driven, perhaps an alternator.
