Just trying to get a feel of how the buses rank as in ownership here. I would think the main 4 would be Eagles, MCI's, Prevosts, and GM's but curious to know what the numbers are. If you own more than one brand of bus as I do, please vote for either your latest purchase or your favorite.  Also, if you are busless at the moment but have your heart set on a particular brand then feel free to vote for the one that you have your heart set on.

We presently own a MCI (MC-8) but owned a GM (4106) prior to the MC-8.  We like both. All buses have pros & cons. We like the stainless and extra 5' on the MC-8, but the 4106 was much more maneuverable and better mileage.  Jack

I appreciate you including all the other brands of buses, I've got an iggle and I know that sadly they didn't make enough so everyone could have one so the great father made sure other brands were available for those that didn't stand far enough to the front of the line, ( and on the eighth day he made GM's and MCI's and looked and it was good lol)  Grin Grin Grin

I saw the red one but thought the white one would better suit my shy and innocent nature, white being the symbol of purity lol. Roll Eyes

I did some checking and it seems there WERE enough Eagles to go around in the beginning......just that most of them rusted away before the rest of us got the chance to get one... When my turn in line came I was offered a "Hot" bus... Of course at the time, I thought "Hot" was a good thing.. I didn't know it meant she would overheat at the first sight of a hill....  Grin
