If you were in Texas I know a guy who makes them up for MCI 9's. Maybe someone else has an idea.

There are three kinds of people in this world....those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those that just wonder what the heck is happening. Which one are you?

Wax-um,

Have you thought about renting a car for the drive to Springfield?  That way you could leave the car there and address the hitch issue when you are not as rushed.

You will need to fix up 24 to 12 volt lights also. Might rent a car as stated.

the monies you can save by doing your "work" on the bus at home might just pay for the car rental.  The last time we did a similar trip like this we  used Hertz as it was the only one-way available at that time...........s............

Sometimes the more I think about something the less I think about something.    As soon as I save a little money my bus finds out.                                      Why grab a plane when you can take the bus ?                         If I'm wrong 10% of the time how can the "Queen" be right 100%

Ohh, crap Bob dont talk like that. I just recieved my divorce papers today. Divorce is final. I dont want to think about the ladies. Or at least until I chauferee the Bacherelette paty On the 28th. Thats if my bus is done on the 27th like they promise. ten twenty year olds wow were only using the front of the coach luckily the bedroom isnt finished yet. I call the bedroom my workshop.

Its time to make this a working bus. Too much invested not to profit from it. I need alot of tips from a charter company such as Busted Knuckle

Tread carefully here. This site appears to be one of the many associated with a very famous bus felon we all love to hate.

I have seen his site/sites  show up a few times lately and the people that have bought from him must be doing alright but that doesn't mean I will be buying.
