    Oh, yeah, thanks.  I'm not familiar with that kind of bus - and the photo "flattens" things out so that it looks like the passenger seat is against the right-side wall, but I guess it's more in the middle of the bus.  It looks like a lot of work has been put into it but still ... not my cup of tea.

I can't decide whether I like it or not. The curved sides remind me a lot of my own bus, and raising the roof ain't easy when there's a curve like that. There certainly been a huge amount of work gone into this, and kudos to the owner/builder for that - and the RTS is probably my all-time favourite bus in terms of the way they are originally constructed as well - they're way beyond other buses in that respect.

The big side windows on this are great (again, very similar to my own), but the windscreen is too short and uglifies the whole bus. And I'd definitely be changing those boy-racer rear lights pretty sharpish if it was mine. On the whole though, and assuming an inspection showed that the work had been done to a high standard, I would probably think very seriously about buying this I was in the market and if the price was right. But then I'd take it apart and install slide-outs

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
