As cute as they are, we NEED to get them out of here. FL used to be a really nice place with lots of indigenous wildlife. Urban sprawl and abandoned "pets" have basically eradicated a LOT of our bio-diversity.

IDK, not much meat on em, and their human-like qualities would make me uneasy.
But If you do all the killing, cleaning, and cooking I'll surely give it a try, I reckon!

Gotta get this thing sorted out, for sure. Got a 6 pack of Steve Winwood tickets to celebrate the summer and the roof raise!
Gonna load up the shorty and head to Orlando on a saturday night. Should be fun!

I would avoid 11 year old tires, unless you plan on driving like 20 mph all the time

Anyone have any advice about how to make a picture of my bus different colors to see what I wanna do with the paint job?
I'm totally lost when it comes to that kind of stuff.

I believe that there is some website that allows you to put a photo of your project, and then be able to change colors on it. It may have been on a paint co. web site, but there IS something like that out there.
Whoever finds it and posts it here for all to see, will be 1st on my "buy this guy a drink" list

I'll look around. Can't wait to get it painted!

I LOVE driving this thing around. Its a nice "daily driver" bus!
Especially now that the wipers are working properly.
She's officially been named "Shorty McShortface". She's warming up out in the driveway right now. Going to pick up Roxy from work and maybe grab some Starbucks. The new SB location in our town even has enough parking for the bus.

Happiness is a warm bus...
