Cool rig. I saw a gold one in Oklahoma City back in 2010. There were a bunch of them that had gotten together to cruise Rt. 66. I see that 5 of them got together to go to the Grand Canyon last year.

Have fun with it.

That is going to be one great project bus. Did you drive it home? What did the wife say, are you still alive with all appendages in place?

I have only seen photos yet. I am still working on having the bus transported home. I have a line on a 6v92 and a 10 speed to swap in. I may have to take a roadtrip soon to see the bus in person.


Get in, shut up and hold on. NO SCREAMING!

Hi I had a brief career driving for Greyhound in 1968. I did have some of it driving a 4501 Scenic with the 8V71 engine and 4 speed Spicer trans. I ran out of the Chicago terminal and left on my own accord due to the not very good runs for new drivers. I still think its a cool bus and liked driving it. That two cycle engine is made to runn at higher RPMs(anything below 1800 and it was lugging) but the company wanted us to keep the engine speed low going thru towns as it sounded more like you were speeding when it was running up around 2100 RPMs. This posting brought back a good memory. Thanks

Working on getting the bus shipped home, turns out that you just cant put a tow bar on the front and pull it home behind the Grand Cherokee. Something about air brakes and weight transfer. Also my tow lights don't have a cord long enough to reach the back of the bus.

Maybe buy another bus that could tow it?

Rent a Russian helicopter to fly it home?



Could it be put on RR flatbed? If there's no tunnels on the route, why not? After it's up there, you rent out space in it for train travelers.

Whatever you use to get it home, I'll bet it's going to be expensive. Part of the fun though.

I envy you your ambition...hope you start a blog and let us follow along.
