"I did see a picture of a bus on the side of the road with the engine & transmission still in the traffic lane. . . I do wish I had saved that one."
Kyle, What kind of bus ? Bet not an Eagle !!!!!!
Probably an MCI!
FWIW We have a tour guide that uses our buses who drove for Greyhound for 33 yrs. When we told him why we retired #707 he laughed and said "oh yeah, that brings back memories!"
Come to find out he was personally bebopping down the Cimarron Turn Pike in Oklahoma one night and heard a "kawalothump......thumb.bump...da...bang" (Bob's exact description! LOL!) and the bus slowed to a halt as he coasted to the should of the road.
He told us he got out of the bus to see what happened just as a car coming down the road behind him hit something and went airborne landing on it's side!
Come to find out the engine/trans cradle and all had fallen out of the bus and was in the center of the lane and the car driver didn't notice it until right before hitting it!
Later he found out from a Greyhound mechanic that it was not the first time it'd happened to that same bus and some others!
