hey, i'm only 28!!!!
Until i look in the mirror, or try lifting one of the bus tires, or try reaching in to turn a nut tighter or try for a second go at it in the same evening.
Then, i realize i ain't as young as i thought i was.  Damn mirrors anyway.  60's not that old, is it?

Glad to see there are so many younger busnuts, though.

Not under 40 anymore, but my bus is --it is 37.  It was 27 and I was 37 when I got it.

Got my first bus when I was 24 and it was 26. 

My 3 yr old grandson wants to ride in Pappy's bus, but his mother is afraid he will catch something if he does---the busnut bug!

Nice to see other young guys on here as well; I feel good knowing that young != bad taste.

Seriously, what would you rather have:

- purple Civic with 8" fart pipe and double wing / F350 with crappy lift kit, chrome rims that never go offroad, and sags towing a 25' wooden travel trailer

- or a shiny Prevost with a screaming Detroit, rev matching and you roll through the gears down a scenic road. Hell, even purging my air brake valve beside a boomy Civic at a stoplight gives me a smile!



AGREED!!! I happen to think that I have fabulous taste, but I am so biased....
Just wait until you see my shiny Prevost with a screaming Detroit and my adorable little 1980 diesel rabbit trailing behind it... Smiley

I am 35. Owned my first bus at age 24. I now have 2 Eagles.

 Started driving entertainer coaches professionally at 19. Last time I checked I had logged 1,350,000 miles.
What a ride so far!!!!!

I wouldn't take any amount of money for the enjoyment I have gotten out of it.
I hope to do it 40 more years.............
