Hi from Dallas from noob

Postby Hopeful Wanderer » Fri Mar 01, 2019 9:34 pm

Hello !

I have been lurking here for months, but now poking my head into the forum.

I'm not sure if this forum is for people who haven't started yet on a build. If it isn't, mods can delete me.

I had previously decided on getting a cargo trailer to convert, but now I'm thinking a shuttle bus might be better for me. I like having everything in one piece- my home and my vehicle.

I'm actually going to look at a shuttle bus tomorrow. It's a 1997 and he says it has 120k miles. That seems low for the age. I told him I would need to also have my mechanic look at it. Price is $2500.

Anyway, if you say I am in the wrong place I will go away. No harm no foul..

All are welcome. No right or wrong designs or builds.

Most like to see pictures of your progress. Almost everyone will throw in their 2 cents if you have a design decision. Someone has done or is about to do anything you are working on.

I like the way you think, and I’m also interested in watching your build, if/when it gets to that. I’ve been involved in the past with an attempted Bluebird schoolbus conversion (engine and transmission repairs made it uneconomical) and an Izusu 12-foot box truck conversion (worked very well, owner uses it for tailgating at NASCAR races and for vacation trips with his S.O., too). I might even be able to assist with mechanical problems (I’ve been working on motorcycles and power lawn equipment as a hobby since my retirement in 2005) and electrical ones (I’m a retired electronic technician and still have some useful troubleshooting tools), so keep me in mind if you think I can help. I’m probably close enough to drive over and have a look-see at your problem (if that expression doesn’t give you an idea of my age, I’m well into my 70’s).
The only days I consider “wasted” are the ones during which I fail to receive knowledge, impart knowledge, or perform an act of kindness.
