Here's a quick snippet from the ongoing chat with MAK tonight...  don't miss out - join us over in chat!

-----> cut

[Timkar] 11:02 pm: Mak...what's your preference for a shell? You seem to deal
mostly with MCI
[mak] 11:03 pm: MCI, for many reason, one is that it has more factory headroom.
6"7' and 6'10" in the "C" models, so you do not have to raise the roof
[Timkar] 11:04 pm: What are your thoughts on the LeMirage?
[mak] 11:04 pm: Also, the MCI seems to be a better built bus... although that will
tick off more than one person
[Ace] 11:04 pm: ahem!!!!
[mak] 11:04 pm: If you look at the market place, and how the different bus
comapines gain the positions they are in, it tells alot
[plyonsMC9] 11:05 pm: What positions are they in?  Esp., Prevost & MCI?
[mak] 11:05 pm: Prevost did not fair well in the 80's with the buses with the
commercial operators, so they gave them to the converters with no flooring cost
and were paid after the bus was converted and sold. MCI would not do this

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Wish I could have stayed awake to See both of the BIG Kahuna's on.
Unfortunately, all day at one Dr. or another and working on a coach wore me out.

Maybe I can stay awake tonight, although nothing is going on.

MOOOOO
