I know how we all love bus pictures.  So while cleaning up my pictures file I figured I would post all the bus pictures that I took over the last year for your enjoyment.

Please try not to make a mess.  thanks.

-Sean

This was a bus from India.  Tons of buses there.  You guys would have a blast tooling around with Diesels over there.


How about the double side entry doors?


Not sure if this is a bus or a truck built into a bus -


Oh yeah baby!  An authentic DVD Coach!


Singapores got a little more money -


They also have a ton of Double Decker buses to shuttle all those people around -


Eh - I'd say about 15.5' ?


Lots of buses in Asia with no tags -


Higer?  German?  Not sure.  Paint and Body looked nice though.


A Setra Knockoff?


Loved the headlights on this one -


Had to get back to the states to see some real buses though - This one in NYC outside the Hilton on 7th and 53rd -



More to come -  Shocked

In South Africa - Only the casinos can afford the buses


But they can't afford to keep them running  


This one was amazingly found in my own back yard.  About 15 miles away parked outside the studios where they filmed Iron Man 3.  Doubt this will be in the picture -


This one needs a bit of work.  How about it Bruce?  Need another British Bus?


Authenticity -


Made in England!


The board looks fresh.  Think they may have had it running?


This is one of my faves I found out on the west coast.  I believe someone is actually living in it.


Look at that doggie -


Pay the toll please!


This will be a beauty when they are done with it - Love the license plate.

Those pictures are fun!   Indian buses have progressed a lot from the days of rickety Tatas with people sitting on the roof and hanging on to the outsides.   It's good to see a Bristol FLF, even though it's a long way from home  -  I had the crazy idea when I lived in England to convert one, and here I am almost forty years later doing just that to a Crown.   I've always liked my ABCs  -  AEC, Bristol and Crown.

Did Greyhound ever run Flxibles?   Is that aluminum siding original?   Where is it?

This was in a local parking lot giving the kids rides for free.





There were 8 oil filters on it in a row, 550 Hp Chevy 350. Rolling lob air bags and military axles.

John - Currently I am a freelance project manager/technical director.  My background is in network engineering and for the past 10 years or so I have been working in the convention/conference industry doing technical work in AV and IT.  I'll pretty much do a good job at anything if the price is right Wink

John - I think I saw another Flx decked out as a greyhound in the pics from Blytheville.  I'm sure RJ or someone will confirm.  That and the red starliner were out at HB industries east of San Diego.  They do some amazing work at that place.  They really love their buses.

Dave - that thing is awesome.  My son would go nuts to get a ride in that.

OK - last batch here for now.  If you have other pics of buses lying around, please share!  Don't be a hoarder!

NYC 5.0


A pretty bird outside of Charlotte NC.


Unfortunately a church bus.


Grass sneaking up on her.


Pretty Prevo in downtown Philly


Love the little side windows in this one.  Is there any where to buy those from?  I'd love to put a small window like that in each of the kids bunks.


And a trailer...

Go to www.goatchicken.com. This is a collection of old pictures from the 1970s and '80s that Brewster bus driver's have sent in. You'll even see me in a couple of them. History about us driving in the Rockies, the Sunshine ski hill road before the first gondola lift was built in '79, the Columbia Icefields, etc...

Check Hehr for those little windows.  My bus has 4 of them in the bedroom, 2 on each side (1 low and 1 high), presumably to facilitate airflow without compromising privacy.  Mine have crank open sections in the center.
