I could probably find this out by going to the local bus station, but if anyone knows of a decent bus garage in the area could you let me know.  I probably won't be online much but I'll check this in a few days.  I guess any info re a big truck scrap yard may be helpful as well.
Ciao and thanks, Patrick.

Patrick,
Where are you coming from and where are you going? We have an excellent private shop in the Mpls/St Paul area: C&J Bus. The owner JD is very helpful and knowledgeable and been in the bus biz for a long time. Craig Shepard, Brian Diehl and I all have used him in the past and I buy most my parts from him. He is kind of biased toward MCI but still fairly objective.

Regarding truck grave yards there is a pretty good one up in Rogers which is on the NW side of the Mpls/St Paul area - Glens Truck Repair and Salvage.

Call me if you want 612-801-4826.

Fred,
JD even takes time to answer calls from us "good ol' boys" in the south and answer all our questions! Great source of info & parts! Have yet to make it and meet him, but I will soon! I am planning on coming up in the very near future and picking up all of Paul's leftovers! Grin  BK  Grin

SOON Paul, SOON! I am going to come by myself if I can't get dad to set a date to come with me! I want to make it before the end of the month!

Bryce, I'm only an hour north of Paul, so let me know when you are planning on coming up as I would love to meet you!  If you had time I would love to show off my powertrain swap as well.

I want to meet Bryce too, but I'll be busy the rest of this month.  Maybe Bryce won't make it this month so there is only this week and next left.

That would be awesome! I followed your swap very intensely (some days I wanted to email or call you and ask you "can't ya get a little more done faster" LOL! As it was very painful waiting for the next update! You have done an awesome job, and the documentation of it just makes it so much more impressive!

You funny Belfert! Very funny! I believe we met once before! LOL!
But yes it would be cool to maybe have a small getogether of busnuts while I'm up there! I'd like to make it where I can be up there on a week day so I can swing by and meet JD also!

Bryce, were those stories you told us about Belfert  all from a dream you had?  Did him speeding out of your pit bay really happen?  LOL

I still have the broken extension cord somewhere from leaving it plugged in while pulling out of BK's garage.  Is that proof enough of having been there?
