We lived in Boise for 15 years off 5 Mile and Overland till the city started coming our way and real estate prices went through the roof we sold the place on Hollanddale and the land where Fred Meyer's is located
 
I love that country my wife is a native of Boise and a graduate of Boise State we are there every year at our place 

good luck

Those blue and pink colors are very 1980s, early '90s. My 5C is done in those colors too. It was done in '93.

Still looks nice.

Got the later style heads and Jake's on the baby that's good, the photo is of the air horn (top) screen not the bottom so you don't spend much time on the screen thing lol.
 
I tried to order some bottom screens last week and found out they are no longer available aftermarket or Detroit just so you know your guy may not find one      


good luck.

Good to know about the screen, Leon at Big Mac diesel had a couple of motors and parts. Give me a blower, just had to pay for rebuild kit. So maybe I'll get lucky for once. Ha Ha. Don't know how good he is, but he turned the motor only for a few sec. and knew the blower was shot. I'm at his mercy now. all I can do is put it in Gods hands.

That's still a good looking bus even if you all have to tow it around. Always something to do on these babies.
