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....

Same here, Steve. 42 years old... But my first ride on a bus conversion came at three months of age in early 1965. I honestly think I have been hooked ever since even though I am just now attempting to do my own conversion.

Well, so far I believe I am the oldest at 75. I bought my first 4104 in the late 70's sometime, but I do not remember for sure.

 Sorry Cliff but....

   NCBob has already admitted his age and is younger that Richard  (noted on Aug. 8,2007)
   Out of respect for my elders I'll leave it at that.

 I should be so lucky as you two.   Smiley

I'm just a kid at 55 but my wife claims that she recruited lincoln for the republican party, so does that count? lol Expiring minds want to know lol.  As far as owning a bus, my first was a 1936 chevy school bus that I bought in 1965 and used for a fishing and hunting camp for a couple of years until a guy gave me an offer I couldn't refuse for it, a whopping 500 bucks, I had only paid 50 bucks for it and couldn't believe that I could make a profit of that scale.  I felt like an absolute criminal taking him to the cleaners like that, until I stop and think about what an antique like that was really worth, it was all original and ran like a top, only changes I had made were to take out the seats and add a bunk and a hotplate to cook on along with a discarded couch and folding table, I still had the seats and he took them too.

I suspect that some of us are old enough that we should no longer purchase green bananas.  Roll Eyes Cheesy Wink

Actually I'm just an older pup myself.

I can tie Richard, but no matter how long we live I will never pass him. I bought my first highway coach in 1979, a partially converted MCI Courier 96 1957.

Geez where can this thread go?

Might be oldest BusNut that frequents these boards but I know some a lot older than 75.

The Eagles International has a few members in their 80s.

I'm pretty sure somewhere there's a Nut that bought Silverside new.

Just a side note, my wife read the post I did on her recruiting Lincoln for the republican party and was a little miffed and made me promise to correct my post and make it right, so I'm doing that now, she is actually a democrat lol.

I know a bus nut that is 80 (he doesn't get on the BBs). Not sure how long he has had conversions. He has always had at least 1 since we have known them in the early 80's.  Jack

You don't mean your early 80's do you Jack Huh Roll Eyes Wink Cheesy
Sorry Jack, couldn't resist.


Anyhoo,  Possibly the question was meant to be the nut with the Oldest Bus.     Milicent is the oldest bus I know of, Any body have a bus that is older then Dallas's?
