Oh yeah, I called Pat to get permission to post these.
The dash was not complete when I took them a year ago...I think Pat said it is now.

Craig, (aka Gumpy),

I do have the utmost respect for you and most of the people on here. The things you have done to your bus are amazing. I have spent the last month doing just what you have proposed that I do..read, read, and read some more. I have spend nearly 2 weeks just on your sight alone. I will be getting a bus soon, and when I do, I will be calling on you, and numerous other members of this site for your help, guidance, and support, as I embark on probably one of the biggest projects of my life so far.

However, I when I posted, I posted to Jack. Once I reread my post, I apologized to him publicly. I believe that he and I are past this now, and we are moving on with life.

I have re wrote this post about 5 times... SO.....

There are tons of things that I could post here in response.. but I will not. I am going to bite my tongue, turn the other cheek, or whatever you want to call it. Hmm, I made a mistake, and apologized..

The last time I saw Pat's bus the interior was a plywood palace - Nice to see it completed with the same quality (excellent) as the chassis -

Last year at jacks rally, pats bus was just down the row from us, it's even nicer than the pictures show, often pictures show a far more impressive site that the item is but in this case the bus really has to be seen in person, it is flawless.

By the way, for anyone that wants to see Pat's bus in person, Pat will once again be at Bussin' 09.  Jack

Absolutely beautiful!  I believe that is one of the best all time conversions.  I am so throughly impressed inside and out.   I would like to know the source of his interior furniture, I was worried about using to much of the same color of material that it would be to much........but after viewing these photo's, I'm convinced it was the way to go!!!!  To look at the outside and to realize how much work went into making this bus a show bus......is unbelievable.   Jack I for one appreciate you taking the time to post these!  Thank you very much!  Oh yeah.........Merry Christmas!

Another thing is that this bus has been stretched to 45ft 6 inch, ask pat the story on the extra 6 inches lol.

Am I seeing correctly that his front door opens to the rear like a suicide door? That's pretty cool since that is the long edge and would give him a better pivot, as long as he can keep the wind out on the road.

Like Cody said, ask Pat about the extra 6 inches!

Songman, I can assure you there aint no, (Yeah, I know it's a double negative!) wind coming in that door!

Muddog, I tried to call Pat and ask him to no avail...however...I think it is all custom work.  Someone ask him at Bussin' 09 and post back please.

Don't know about the ugliest (mines pretty close), but my vote for best looking is the guy with the 45 ft red scenicruiser. You know the one. I don't recall his name. Didn't get to meet him or see the bus up close, unfortunately, but it's by far the most awesome looking bus I've ever seen.

The 45'6" (he wanted it to be bigger than a Prevost) red Scenicruiser belongs to Pat McNeil. It is a beautiful bus.  Jack
