It is often not the miles, but how the state aid formulas work. Under our program of retiring buses the state paid 90% of the cost of the bus so it made more sense to buy new ones than to fight with maintenance on the older ones.

I pay based on the weight, so I ran it across a scale and registered it for the next higher band.  It costs about $50 a month for the license, but I can get it for the months I want.

In North Carolina if it is registered as a motor home,they don't even list the weight on the registration card.

I am older I guess than most of the folks on here,but I remember back in the 50's and early 60's we (N.C) used Dodge,Ford,Chevrolet,GMC and a splattering of Federals.You can still buy Ford Chevy and gmc chassis with gas engines but the diesel market is pretty much all Freightliner.I expect that Navistar will pretty much have the market cornered as far as light duty Diesel engines are concerned. They and Cummins are about the only ones left in this market.You have to use DEF fluid in the Cummin's .You don't in the Navistar v-8 and I just can't see these school systems wanting to fool with the DEF.What with the high upkeep and the price of diesel fuel,I would not be surprised to hear that some school systems may be going back to gas.It really makes no sense for these strapped for cash school systems to keep using diesels with no more miles than they put on these things.

Dennis, I'm in the north Dallas area, and don't have anything on the calendar that day.  I can probably meet you if you want.  Might be available for airport pickup if you're flying in.  What part of town is the Eagle in?

Email is runcutter@runcutter.com  phone nine seven two - four six six - four six one one.

I'm a hundred miles east, just in case you are interesting in building your own and want to start with a great 80%-completed Prevost platform.

Cheers, John

Mark, would like to make the rally but right now all of our future traveling plans are on hold until we get the final bill on the bus. Parts are coming in although one of the heads is on back order but we are hoping to be out of here in two weeks,......maybe even less.
