In this issue we feature an article by Mike Sullivan and Gary Hatt.  This article is about when Gary Hatt, Publisher of Bus Conversion magazine had the pleasure of meeting Cliff and Charlotte Moon.  They gave him the grand tour of their beautiful 1964 GM PD-4106 bus conversion and they of course sat and talked about buses for most of the afternoon.  Cliff and Charlotte worked on perfecting their bus for the last 35 years. They did nearly all of the work themselves; they are true to-the-bone bus nuts.  They had started out with a factory built RV, a Dodge “Frank” Motorhome which they traded in for a Holiday Rambler trailer.  Later they decided they wanted a bus conversion after seeing one a friend had converted.  In 1979 they bought their bus, a seated coach.  This is when the process of their converting begins.  There are photos of before, during, and after of Cliff and Charlotte’s conversion process.  To read the first part of their article titled Las Vegas Express, click here…

Another article in this issue is by Jon Ulse titled Bus Accident Investigation Pt 1 of 2.   Jon has investigated over 250 buses vs. other vehicles and objects during his career in bus transportation, supervision and management.  He talks about his training and positions that he has held in the bus transportation industry.  This is a very interesting, informative article about his training and experiences in witnessing and investigating bus and vehicle accidents.  One of his favorite non-injury accidents was a one in a million accident.  Setting the scene, transit bus is in rush hour traffic on the interstate.  To read the first part of this article and to see what happens when a bus burns, click here…

Another article in this issue is by Paul Lawry titled Bus Nut Review: TireTraker Tire Monitoring System.  Paul and Becky Lawry are retired full-timers and have lived in their 1968 Silver Eagle for seven years. They built their bus conversion to fit their life style. Paul had wanted to purchase a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for a few years to help monitor the tire pressures on his Silver Eagle and toad. Him and his wife like to stop every hour or two to stretch their legs, and he always checks the tires and the temps the old fashion way.  To read the first part of this article about Paul and Becky Lawry’s traveling experiences using their new TireTraker Tire Monitoring, click here…
