Having two.
Drove our new to us 1992 MCI102C3 shell home today. Will be driving her to Michigan this summer to store until conversion process starts. Heather and I are officially bus nuts and officially mental. Here's the specs:
8v92TA DDEC
Allison 748 Electronic push button trans
8" roof raise (total of 91 inches interior height)
Renaissance front and rear caps
Whole lotta work to do. Wish me luck.

Having seven?

One member of our Crown group has six Crowns and a Gillig, and another member has an ever-fluctuating number of buses, I think about four or five maybe.   With the other buses the rest of us Crownaholics own (I'm one of the few with only one), we joke that we have more buses than some school districts.   And these are not all school buses  -  we have plenty of rarities and one-offs just to make things interesting, such as a Crown TV truck (it's a real truck, not a bus), an Atomic high-level tour bus, two Yellowstone tour buses, a 1955 tandem with a military-style drive axle and belt drive to the other, and even an original Embree bus.   Fun!   At our annual get-together last weekend we convoyed six buses around town, and made enough smoke to completely undo the low-emission efforts of millions of Prius owners.   Take that, CARB.
