Here's a 4106.  This particular coach is owned by the Pacific Bus Museum.

Here's a late Buffalo.  This one happens to be Doug (tekebird)'s parent's coach.

Finally, here's Greyhound's Scenicruiser.  This is coach PD4501-001 - the first one off the production line.  Photo taken at the Los Angeles shop.  This has the original breastplate, later models are different.  I think they were changed when the Scenics went thru the repower program in 1961-1962.

Found a pic of the later Greyhound 4501 Scenicruiser & 4104 Highway Traveler front breastplate.  This is the Running Dog style.

Is this last one the one they were saying is a "dog tag"?
If it is, and someone has one of these, even if it's not in th best of condition, it can be duplicated. There are several casting "kits" out there that are not that tough to do. Or, if I had one, I could do a copy just by annealing some copper sheet and "chaseing" it over the top. Definitely easy enough to do.
  I was going to "freehand repousse'" mine.

  Get creative!

Chaz, thanks for finding Gallant's web site.  I don't know him, but the picture of the TANK fishbowl?  - I wrote the specs for those (group of 10, if I recall) in 1979, just before getting transferred to another property.  Nice to see that one was preserved.
