I put a few more conversions on the page.  Where I had several pictures, I used a "photo gallary" of thumbnails so the you can see various details.

Any more for the collection?

Sonnie was the co-presenter of the seminars and I have tons of pictures.  That is the problem. I need to sort through all of them and pick a few to put on the page.

Have received a couple off line and will get them on the page in a few days.  Will be on the road for the next three days and then at a couple of trade shows.

Kent.  I only have the one picture of your bus.  I would love to have both your brother's bus photos as well as more of your bus.

Airbag, do you know the owner of that great example of an UNUSUAL conversion?  I would love to get permission to use the photos you posted.

It is the bus featured on the latest post "Leno's Fexi" But it really belongs to a race driver named Bernard who you will see in the video. Go to the main All Topics section and you will see it. I have no idea how to contact him but I'm sure he will be back at Phoenix International Raceway in October. Try Google Clipper 6V-92?

Airbag-granted the upper pulley says 8V-92, but it doesn't have the big vibration dampner on the front of the crankshaft.  I'd say that's a 6V-92TA-which is still alot of power for a Flx.  Good Luck, TomC

If that's Jay Leno's Flx-that engine is a 6V-92TA that has been boosted to 435hp and 1350lb/ft torque.  It is quite fast for a bus.  Good Luck, TomC
