    Damn! This thread just gets better.21 window E bus would be the dream.

    My buddy dug a 55 panel out from behind a landscapers shop in banff. Thing sat there hidden in the bushes filled with junk storage. Emptied out the junk , through in a 1500 and drove away(super flat in the industrial compound). Bearings and brakes later. Buses will go through anything with power to both wheels and engine/trani over the rear axles. Super low gear in the 55 trani. Top speed was 45-50mph. Itd be ez to crawl down the mountain in 1st. I helped put the poma quad lift in at goats eye(sunshine village) and in the fall as we were rapping up the install it snowed and I was climbing the ski out in fresh snow alongside the 4x4's. Bit sketchy on the down in packed snow and got more than a few funny looks but amazing traction on the up

    I don’t think so. That’s cool though albeit a little off scale. Trani/engine/rear wheels are identical scale on a bus and a beetle. Trani is just flipped one way for the beetle and flipped upside down/right for the bus and the reduction gear spins axles the opposite direction but otherwise the same length

    Having taken one down to bare metal for a complete restoration, I would run away. Who knows what condition of the underside was like before being covered up.

    x2 Lotsa lipstick on that pig!
    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    Oh, I'm not looking to buy it, thanks though.

    It looks like a pretty cool set up though...except the potential added weight factor.

    Cool man! I like the split front seats. Mine had the bench(drivers 1/3 and 2/3 bench passenger). Bit of a pain with the bench

    This poor dude buys this bus in Utah and brings it home to CA and they won't pass it on the smog test because they "basically want the same exhaust that came from the donor car". WTF. He mentioned some other stuff that essentially sounds like the mob is running the CA dmv.

    Went to play a round of disc (2 over), couple cold ones at the local brewery, ended up closing a handshake deal on an 82 bus. Pick up next weekend when back from work trip. Really for daughter in the end once she pays up to bank of dad

    ^^^^ heh, sorta. Got wind of this rig couple summers ago, sitting out in back yard. They are upgrading to synchro so just came up in conversation with buddy. Literally drinking a beer and his friend sends text asking if anyone interested in a bus. Very little rust, the rest will need replacing

    I realized I have never shared a pic of my buddy’s Riverbus. He’s taken it down the Mississippi.
