new to forum

Hi
my name is Al
I own a 1958 35' Kenworth Pacific schoolbus Pusher I bought in 2001 at an estate auction.
In 2004 installed a 350 cummins and 9 speed roadranger with .73 overdrive.
Conversion was started in 1985 and finished by me (still tinkering).
Been living in it full time since 2003.
Thanks

Wow. A new member achieving Grand Master Level Street Cred on his 3rd post. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

I bow down before you, sir. I am not worthy!
