Congratulations!  It looks like a good find.  Best of luck with it.

Yup, you are definitely infected with the bus nut bug now.

Brian, Looks nice. I think yours is a sister to mine. I was told they had 4 or 5, all 1980s. I got the last one so I figure the worst one. MPG sounds high as it should have 4:10 gears also. They had a bunch of parts a while back out there. I was told one is now a chicken coupe on the resevation. I did have some rust in the walls by the traingle windows and about half way back. Not trying to scare you, and it was not bad. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions as to what I found on mine.  Tom Y

Luvrbus, I bought mine from a dealer in Phoenix. They told me they took them on trade, is this right? From what I found with mine I don't think their maintenance was the best. Tom Y

Congradulations to you!  Another Canuck.  I have been eyeing that bus up for sometime. Actually I first saw it shortly after I bought mine. If I seen it before I probably would have made the trip out there. Looks like a nice bus.
