when i got my first coach as opposed to a "bus"(schoolie) i was so proud of her. I took her up to a bussin buddies rally and one of the first things i was told was to take off the bussin buddies sticker on the window as it was the previous owners. It dident bother me to much lol.

Always been a bus nut.  Remember in elementary school riding a 4 row GMC bubble nose schoolie with a 6 cylinder-got a real thrill when the bus driver allowed me to crank open the door.  Then in junior high riding a Crown everyday.  Morning bus had big curved windshield with NH220.  Afternoon bus had small curved windshield with 300hp Hall-Scott gas-that was a hot rod.  Got a thrill when a replacement bus was either a 10 wheeler with a 10spd or it had a screeming 6-71 in it.

Bought my first bus when I was 37 and completed it to be able to use when I was 44.  Now am 56 and building my second conversion based on my old Kenworth '85 Aerodyne Cabover.  Will be done (hopefully) with that one in another year or so (still a working stiff). Good Luck, TomC

I want a recount!  When this poll was taken in Nov, 2010 I was 59, now I am 61.  The poll has changed for a lot of us.

I think you should get a special mention if you are younger than your bus.

Back in the mid 70's, I traveled by coach, coast to coast, border to border, and then some over the pond (USO shows) as a full time road musician working for Gary Van Zeeland Talent. Back and forth across the mountains was like a commute trip home. Many miles, many engines, transmissions and break downs. I still remember it as fun. Then in the early 90's, I saw a cable TV blip featuring Bus Conversions and I was amazed that others felt like I did and re-awakened. Had to be back in a bus again, totally loony I guess. Signed up for the magazine, went to several conventions, and met lots of "nice" bus folks. Crawled through a 100 buses looking for the "right one". Taking pictures and videos. Took 12 years to find it. (said I was loony) Retired now at 61, and working on converting our coach everyday I can. Wouldn't trade it for anything else. Have something to do everyday! Loony! and loving it! Gerry H

At 25 I bought my first bus a skoolie. At age 26 I became a bus driver and have been in transportation for the last 27 years.  In 1996 I bought my 2nd schoolie but my wife filled it with dog crates after I pulled the seats. It became a dog rescue bus.

2 years ago a fully converted PD 4104 fell in my lap dirt cheap.
