Thought I would finally start a page on my project bus. You can see I stated "my" instead of "our"....that's a story in itself that goes like, " You want to buy what...?" LOL! I purchased the bus anyway, I sure many of you have had the same experience to deal with. LOL. After all, we all need another project, don't we? ... and I have a soft spot in my heart for Eagles!

Gary, A 60 series would be nice, but I don't believe I have the skill set for job that big. Everything I put back together was pre-engineered, just had to repair the engine, locate missing parts that did not come with this basket case and install in the bus. :shock:
