Rated Cap: I prefer broad-brims hats
Doesn't, "No va," mean, "it doesn't go," en Espanol..?

Howdy, fiends and neighbours!!!
The rumours of my deceaseditude and corpsification have been greatly over-exaggerated.
So far, at least... [emoji1696][emoji1696]
I'm finally crawling out from under my T444E rock, due to a nearby score that is potentially entirely too sweet to ignore. But available data upon which has been next to non-existent.
(Which similarly describes the social life here in the sticks. But I digress...)
What does the community know about the NovaBus? Good, bad, or indifferent. Which is more'n I have to go on at present.
Specifically, the beasts in question are:
2001 RTS, Diesel, 8.48L, 35ft Long, 102in Wide, Vehicle Starts and Drives, Has Wheelchair Kneel Feature, GVWR: 39,500 lbs., GAWR: Front 14,500 lbs., GAWR: Rear 25,000 lbs., Engine – Detroit Series 50, Transmission – ZF, Wheelchair Lift – Lift-U.
Like most any guy, I'm always looking to get more head (space). My 6' frame keeps the ceiling center well dusted in my Int'l 3800. And speaking as an experienced spelunker, it can feel better a mite claustrophobic in there.
I'll be heading out yonder manana (hopefully) to inspect several. If anyone wants info on any, OTHER than, in descending order: 105, 121, & 115, I'll try to oblige.

Those who say that it cannot be done should not interrupt the people doing it.

RTS-6? I think 2000 or 2001 is when they added the EGR and turbo. All have Air brakes.
