What kind are you looking for?

If I were looking for an all around heavy hauler, I'd talk to Patrick Young, and grab one of his Crown Super Coaches.

If you want a great shell or a complete coach or anything in between, Talk to Mike. Just Click on the MAK Bus Sales Ad up above.

I agree with Dallas. Mike is the man to talk to. I'm in Florida and I'm frequently tempted to buy one of his buses and I don't even need one! Mike, I'm sure glad you're a continent away! Wink

In my opinion the MCI 102C3 is the best all around bus available.  It is 102 wide (that 6" makes a big difference-so a slide isn't really necessary) and the ceiling is 6'10" (high enough where you don't need a roof raise and could drop a false ceiling to run roof ducted A/C.  Personally, I just like the old fashion hang down defuser-then the rest of the ceiling is as high as possible).  These buses are not to old, can still get parts for them, come standard with a Detroit 6V-92TA with some having the 8V-92TA, and even some that have been converted to Cat C12, Cummins ISL, or even Series 50 or 60.   Mike has some good 102C3's in the $25-35,000 mark.  A little higher than some want to pay, but you'll thank yourself many times once you own it.  Good Luck, TomC

Doesn't matter how many times you visit the site. You must make a total of 50 posts before you lose the newbie status.

I was close to becoming a Full Member when I changed my status and had to start all over again.  I'm not complaining. Cheesy

But then, perhaps status is more important to some people than others...... Wink

We even have some members, who are normally docile, congeniel people who are concerned about how soon they're going to be elevated to "Hero" status.

And I really thought we all put our pants on ...one leg at a time.  So far I've not met any "Prima Donna's" on this board. Wink

Who says we are not getting along? Besides I have always hated seeing somebody getting ahead of me. LOL

If your still looking for a bus in the Las Vegas area you should see Gary Bennett at B&B Coachworks in Las Vegas, he does bus conversions in his shop and has an inventory of busses for sale. B&B Coachworks is listed under "LINKS" on the Bus Conversions wed site.

Hope this helps, Jerry
