Jack H Jr, Fred may have been accused of many things (and with all due respect to F/F) he's never, to my knowledge, been accused of being 'fast'!

Fred was one of the pioneers in the Bus Conversion business. While I've known him for a couple of years (and being somewhere around his hallowed years) I've not personally witnessed more than a few of his Masterpieces. He's done work for me on my 40 year old bus (of a mechanical nature) and has excelled in all I've asked of him.

For those of you new to our hobby (and that would include me) you can find his wisdom at:

North Florida Bus Conversions.com

For those who have known Fred and Caroline please do contact him...he's not near as frail as you might expect for a man who's gone through his first serious heart attack....and it might give Caroline a bit of ' relief at the same time.  When I named him a 'Curmudgeon' earlier...I know she's in general agreement!  Wink

Can't get that to work either Bob.

This is Fred's site that I am familiar with:

http://users.cwnet.com/~thall/fredhobe.htm

Is it the same site or does he have a whole other one?

Far be it for me to attempt to act like an authority here or anywhere else. I bow to your superior knowledge and thank you for the link.

 Huh I had not intended to be offensive and didn't think it came across negative.  Oh well, sorry if I offended.  I enjoy reading his info and have learned a lot from it, I would be very interested in any other site he has.

HighTech,

That's the only site I know of myself, it has been a good resource for me to.

I have never had the pleasure of meeting Fred, hope he gets better soon.

Mike, I wasn't offended in any way...don't get confused. There are some out there who will burn your backside if you in any way attempt to come across as an authoritarian individual.

I was just being my usual humble self.

And I have been informed by very close unidentified friends of Ol' Bobs that he has been around since Moby Dick was a minnow! (and a democratic one at that!) So he has much wisdom and knowledge of which he speaks.  Grin  BK  Grin

You guys are always good for a chuckle.  I was gonna start yelling "Hit'em Redneck, hit'em"  but you both caught up with each other and discovered you were friends.  Would be more fun if I could type faster.


Flat medium....WOW,
