Wow, those are some beautiful buses.  I kind of hesitate to post a picture of my Plane Jane Eagle.  As most of you know, I have spent a lot of time on the mechanicals and getting the systems working.  Now I will spend some time working on the exterior.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride
