Hi Bus Nuts!

Just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself...

I purchased a 1990 Prevost LeMirage back in March 2008.  I find this board has great
insight and a lot of knowledge is available.

Looking forward to posting and showing pictures of my bus.

As everyone has had issues, I will post questions/concerns as they come up.
As well, will try to pass on any good tips as well.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Tully


Click "Profile" on the men bar at the top of the forum.  Then explore the menu on the left side to see all the things you can configure including the photo that appears in the left column when you post.

For posting photos in general, I see you have found that.  Good looking bus there.

Another method for posting photos is to use a free Photo Bucket account ( www.PhotoBucket.com ).  That has the advantage of not being limited on size and quality level of the photo.  Photo Bucket will automatically size it to the setting you enter in your Photo Bucket account.  It also has the advantage of being available for you to use on other sites as well or to share with people via email.

hth,

Welcome! I, for one, am wondering where you are.  If you will include at least your state if you don't want to list your exact location, you might find a busnut that's close by.  Beautiful bus.

I have a 1982 MCI MC9 that was converted about six years ago by a guy in PA.  I bought it five years ago and have lived in it most of the time since then.

It was always a PA bus though and my mechanic tells me I need to think about replacing her due to rust and so I am looking around for her successor.

Tully,

Is your buddy with the Eagle a member here?

Have him check out http://www.eaglesinternational.net/

A good place to find specific help for Eagles.

Paul:

My buddy is a National 80's rock band and uses the bus for the road trips.  He is not part of that Eagle group as far as I know.  He appears to have many hook-ups on coach repairs and such.  But, I will pass this addess onto him.

Thanks,

Tully Lee

Hi Tully Lee,

Sweet bus, and Road Runner. Is it a 1971 or '72? I had a 1968 and a 1970 Road Runner. The 1970 was my favorite. Loved the Air Grabber hood. Sold it to a friend who decided not to pay me. No longer a friend. I also have a 1990 Prevost. If you ever make it over to Kalamazoo, Michigan stop by.
