Hi from california

bought a bus. My head is exploding with ideas I have no plans, build as I go is the only plan. Started with a plan but it looked a lot like a RV exactly what I didn't want. So I scraped that and keeping everything in my head. Will post pics as I go
I love any and all ideas I have neighbors stop by offer beers and ideas all the time some are good some not.
bus is a 74 Ford Superior coach probably not the best to start with but I have always rooted for the underdog!

I don't plan too heavily either. I like to let the pieces come together. Easier to look for bargains and stay on the cheap that way, too.
Welcome aboard. Post some pics of your Underdog bus soon!

Crazy we're about one mile from each other! I got a welder and table saw if you don't. My bus is in front of the house cruise down Klamath you can't miss it.

Looking good! I've never seen a bus with a racing stripe on the hood before; nice touch!

Hi Tobias Rides. I recently bought a short school bus in cali too and have had trouble finding insurance. Have you had any luck with that? If you have can you share the info with me?
I didn't think this would be my first hurdle before I even lift a wrench. Im in the Santa Cruz area

Thanks.
Jenny
