When you see Pat's bus, you need to hear the engine. It is a very quiet 8V92. Quite strong too . . . .  Grin  Grin  Grin

Pat had a couple of shipwrights (sp?) custom fabricate the interior. He didn't mind tearing out & redoing anything he didn't like . . . .  Tongue

Oh Yeah, he raised the roof too. . . .  Shocked

It sure is shiney . . . . .  Cool
But I mis the original lines . . . .  Sad

I joined Yahoo groups just to see the photos in context.  Very nice restoration and conversion (IMHO)  Sure made me grin.

When we were looking for a bus to buy, I wanted a Scenicruiser in the worst way, but was vetoed by she who must be obeyed.

*** Oh Yeah, he raised the roof too ***

The roof  (at least 40' of it) is the only thing original on it - FWIW

P.S. What do you think of his rivet line?

Thanks for sharing the pics, what a gorgeous coach!

I like the countertop in the kitchen, how the heck do you find one with a raised lip like that? Custom made I'm sure like the rest of his coach, amazing attention to detail.

I'm all fired up now!

Niles, the lack of rivets creates a smooth run to the sides that impressed the dog poop out of me, anyone who questions what sikaflex can be used for or is squeamish about the use of it should spend some time checking out pats bus.
