Kingsley went into the dumper a long time ago, they had two facilities, then they downsized to one, and then shortly afterwords, their stock bottomed out to nothing.  They could not get refinancing so they shut their doors and closed up shop.  Kind of went the way of custom bus converters and such.  If you have one now, you are an orphan.

They got in trouble when the CEO had storm a brain he could build a bunch and rent them out that was their downfall that is a lot of coach for money maybe the guys from MN can shed a little light but I think if my memory isn't completely gone that C&J Bus was tied to Kingsley some way at one time

good luck
