Just made the deal today, get to pick her up next week.  Been looking for a while, but just couldn't find "the one".  This one is in excellent condition.  All brand new airbags, airlines, & shocks.  All the gauges and switches work, all the lights work.  Minimal traces of rust, and runs out great.

A complete parts manual comes with the bus, but no operators or service manual.  I was able to find manuals for an MC9 in pdf that i could download, but not for an MC8.  Anyone have a link to download manuals for the MC8?

now to see if i can figure out how to post a couple pictures of the newest member to the family.....

Not everyone has what it takes to be an elite GM owner. We understand, and you will find that GM owners are carefull not to give others inferiority complexes (Especially Eagle owners). Bus ownership is a small world you know, we stick together.

Welcome to the few.

Wonderful!!!   Looks clean too.

I was amazed at just how clean it was.  the guys wife was really happy to see it sold.  She was happy to finally have her husband back.  She said he would spend countless hours just washing it and rubbing it down.  There was not even a spec of dust in it, he was very meticulous.  He had an airline spring a leak, so he had a shop put in new airbags all around, replaced every airline front to back, and new shocks all around.  he just dumped a ton of cash into the a/c system as well.  too bad i'm gonna rip it all out shortly.  anyone need any parts?
