Thanks Scott. I remember the first time I laid eyes on it at Bug-O-Rama. Felt like I could crawl under it on my hands and knees. Smile I fell In love with it instantly, bullet holes, rust, and all. Although it didn't work out to keep it as lifted as it was then, I feel like the bus is functional for any off road conditions I dare put it through.

Toasted a Honda yesterday with one of those "Braaaap" mufflers. I was inside on a two lane, left turn. He was inching ahead and revving his shit to make a break when traffic cleared. When he broke, I went with him. He got on it hard when he saw me coming to. I finished the turn in first gear and when I straightened out, hit second and rolled on up the hill. Shifted to third at about 4000 RPM, while I rolled past him. It was great. After I got to fourth and backed down from 70 to 55, he came rolling past with a vengeance. Race over dude! I won. Smile

911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.

^^^Maybe. Smile I'm picking up a shell of a '68 bay window soon. Thinking of a Snail Trail like build. It may need more oomph, so looking at maybe a V6. Smile
