Hi everyone,

Since I am relatively new here I don't know a lot of the old timers.  Who is the oldest bus nut on the board?  Who is the youngest?

Enquiring minds want to know.......

 I vote Gary Labombard as the fastest!

Seen him sprint at a rally when someone pulled out with a hatch open.  Amazing speed!



And Ron looks like me Cheesy

I think you might need to clarify your question, Ken. Are you talking about the oldest in years....or the oldest in relation to Bus Conversions?

Inquiring minds want to know. Cheesy

Can't run fast like that no more John, back problems have done me in on that, If that situation happens again and to help notify the guy leaving with a hatch open I would have to try to hit the side of his bus with a cow plopping, like throwing a Disc.

I'm so short that my 6 foot plus son calls me the 2000 year old shrimp.  Does that qualify me?

Finally I get a chance to correct my friend who is not as speelingly challenged as he claims I am, the phrase, "enquiring minds want to know" has been replaced by "expiring minds want to know", this new phrase has come into practice after many research scientists, after studying the mindset of a busnut over an extended period of time, concluded that we are all suffering from a case of mental clutch slippage, ain't it fun? lol

Well, I started out with a folding type tent trailer sometime in the early 60's. I believe Dodge came out with the first actual motor home about that time also. Pickup shells were starting to be used for campers also.

 ::)Oldest Bus Nut?
If you are talking about the age of that person or how long that person has owned his bus conversion?
If it's the age of the person who has been a bus nut all of his life.That likes buses their are quite a few of us old bus nuts around.
And the bus nuts who own a bus conversion some are young and some of us are old.
My self I am 65 years old and have been around buses all of my life starting back as far as the prewar ACF Intercity Brill coaches and the GMC Intercity coaches.

After riping out the interior of our bus my back sure feels like the oldest........ OK...I know.... we all had to do that, so I guess at 42 I'm stuck in the middle age bracket again.....lol....
