Greetings All! Glad to find a forum and friends to talk to about my odd hobbies/habbits!
In 1999 I "converted" 56 passenger dognose bus and lived in it a year as I traveled around the US. Kept it as a camper for a few years after but living in NYC it was hard to park so gave it up to a touring rock band from New Orleans. Here is a picture:
I want to do another. This time I want to start with a bus I really like. There are a few things I require.
2) Curb side escape or wheelchair door.
3) Under bus storage.
And a few things I really want.
1) 8.3L Cummins Engine
2) Allison MD3000 Transmission
3) A door that opens in, not out (I always drive with the door open)
4) Roof AC.
5) Bells and whistles.
6) Price tag under $5K.
Can anyone help me find places to buy busses? Last bus I just bought from the school yard but now I can't find any yards that sell to the public. I looked on the forum classifieds but found nothing. Google searches got a few things but you guys seem to find all kinds of great busses easily and I'm just lost.
Any advice on my engine or transmission choices is welcome. I only got the ideas I listed from reading this forum.
Thanks for any help! I can't wait to get started and start meeting you guys!
