That was it though. But also, I've seen mentioned that this year they opened it up to a couple other bus models including GM.  I thought the other was MCI, but it may have been Prevost.

Eagles,flexible's,and Gm's . Our first bus rally and we had a blast !

the only down side for us was blowing the engine (again   Cry),but not even that could keep us from attending Grin

Up side to this ,being at the rally ,we found a new engine to replace the old one and meet the nicest group of people having the time of their lives (what bus nuts do when they hit the road),more later. Van

That is a really huge down side.  I'm glad you enjoyed the rally anyway though.

Thanks nick,at least we got to camp overnight while waing for our rescuers from GREAT WEST towing to arrive sat morning,was a little unnerving being only a foot and a half from the road way. Cheryl said she was amazed at how calm I was during the break down,guess after the last time I have become de sensitized which helped in dealing with the situation.

  VT here's another shot.

I maybe changing the subject but I think Van tare has his question answered. I was wondering how many miles on your engine since last rebuild and why did it blow up and was it completely toast?
