Van,

Would you be able to post pics of the zappos bus?  I'd love to see how it turned out.

Hopefully nobody was hurt. Looks like this coach can be brought back to life. Put a new CUMMINS ISX and ALLISON B500 and it's good to go.

You can bring one back to life but it costs $$$$$ then you still have a bus with a salvaged title you are stuck with I have a empty wallet and the bus to prove that lol

If that is same guy I meet in Phoenix he is not in bad shape on that bus he has another one with a front end burn and 2 or 3 more damage Prevosts setting at Michel Angelo's yard so parts should not be a problem for him

Clifford, Richard says the cause of most of the burnt Prevosts are due to friction fires, usually between the owners and the insurance company's lol  Grin

He left out the banks lol some of those guys get tired of the 7000.00+ a month payments after about 3 or 4 years and owe more than it's worth it's truly amazing how many bus fires there is every year 

I got a invitation last week to bid on a 2012  H-45 in Albuquerque another fire sale  Roll Eyes
