Check CTC 1-877-500-6999 or MCI sells the Prevost kits 1-800-323-1290 you probably have the Knorr brake system and they are a little pricey from Prevost fwiw MCI sells a lot of Prevost parts

With an attitude like that, maybe it's better that he don't spend much time here.  Roll Eyes

Back to the conversion, I actually think the guy was just embarrassed to be seen in a bus and was trying to disguise it. BTW Astro, you should know by now that you can't kill a DD with a stake, they just got way too much heart for that... Grin

If you don't like it, then keep your fu**ing mouth shut. People build things to their liking. It's none of your goddamn business. I know alot of you people want to sound like know-it-alls, but you're not all right. This is a perfect example of why I don't bother with this site much anymore. PURE IGNORANCE

Dale Carnegie had a good book titled "How to win friends and influence people".  Wink

I, for one, see that bus as a potential parts machine for someone looking to feed their 8. Which is why I posted the ad. It must have at least some good parts and if so, one could tear it apart and scrap the rest with little guilt.

Hell, if I had an 8 and it was closer to me, I'd buy the hideous beast and pound a stake through its heart.

I received the following email from Larry Plachno of National Bus Trader magazine about Ralph's collection. This may add some perspective:


I was on the phone with Ralph Cantos and Egon Kafka on Saturday regarding their antique bus collection. I am sending you this e-mail to let you know what is going on in case you can help the situation. Please feel free to pass this e-mail along to anyone you think may be able to help in some way.

Over the years, Ralph Cantos put together a collection of antique buses. As near as I can tell, this includes something like 29 cars and at least 40 buses. Some of the buses are pre-war (see photo of 1929 Indiana), many are rare (a Kenworth trolley bus) and some are simply precious (a Scenicruiser). Some had been used in movies (a Clipper from Warner Brothers).

Unfortunately, instead of creating a real museum, this collection was simply stored in a lot. Recently, that lot was annexed by the City of Fontana, California is now part of an industrial development program. They want the buses out or they might be sold for scrap.

If you are in a position to help in some way, contact Ralph Cantos (310) 497-5840 trolley523@msn.com or Egon Kafka (858) 952-6039 egonkafka@gmail.com.

We here at National Bus Trader are willing to provide publicity and editorial support for any effort to restore and display these antique buses.

Larry

Fontana, CA just recently created a new ordinance where they no longer want trucks and buses stored in their city limits.  A bus collector with 29 antique cars and at least 40 antique buses now needs to find a new location to store his cars and buses and is looking for a new location in the Fontana area lest he has to pay the city of Fontana $1000/day in fines.  If anyone knows of a place he can store all (or some) of his buses please call or email him asap.  His name is Ralph Cantos (310) 497-5840 or email him at trolley525@msn.com.  Thanks for anything you may be able to do.


Sorry, but if the owner of the lot is waiting this long to fight the ordinance or move his stuff it is all over but the crying.  The original post asked for a place to move his stuff to.  That is what has to be done now.

Personally I like the Cricket as it takes up less space and have tried them out and like them.  Other folks have them and like them.

That is quite a remarkable post.  This is a bus board and we (in Greg's mind) are not allowed to make comments about a bus that is for sale.  If you make comments you are a "know-it-all" who is ignorant.  Okay, let's see some pictures of Greg's bus and how he did or is doing his conversion.  We would not make the same type comments to a member of this board as we would a non-member who is only known to us as a person who put up a Craig's List ad.  Ad's for sale on buses are fair game around here.  Take it or leave it, there is a lot to learn when someone innocently makes comments on a bus that is for sale and the members of this board make observations on it.
