Crown, Gillig, and diesel advice, buses available Patrick Young 7-24-05  
Howdy Folks

I own several buses, and have worked on a BUNCH of them. I have also dismantled 7 buses (one Crown, 4 Gilligs, 2 Fords) with these own two hands. I know a lot abut the machinery in general, since I started driving a truck when I was eighteen, and have been driving and working with buses for 14 years. And if I don't know the answer, I have several friends who are absolute experts on diesel that I rely on.

I have complete buses, engines, transmissions, any part from the biggest to the tiniest. I am also 100% straight and honest with anyone that I deal with. NO Scamming allowed. I have driven buses for years, and consider other Bus Nuts as potential friends, not someone to make a fast buck on. Anything you get form me is 100% guaranteed. If you don’t like it, just return it undamaged and get something different, or your money back. That includes the entire bus. I don’t have to worry; I don’t sell anything defective, so if I get a return, it just goes back into stock and appreciates in value.

I use the buses to haul medical supplies, wheelchairs, tools etc. to Central America and Haiti. Please take a moment to check out my web site. It is fast loading, and I hope, pretty interesting. The URL is
and it covers 20 of driving buses into the war zones of Central America.

Ok just let me know if can help fellow bus nuts in any way. I can also usually answer any question, because if I don’t know it, I will contact my network of friends who are diesel mechanics, school district transportation managers, etc.

Howdy - I have a 1961 blue bird school bus (converted). It is the flat nose type with doghouse. I am looking for left & right windshield and can't find. I have called blue bird and they only go back to 1962, the year of major bosy change and can't help me. Any ideas? John

As long as the glass is flat and not curved you can probably find a glass shop that can cut to size.

We will be going to Central America and are looking for other people who are traveling there also. We want to travel with a group since we are not familiar with the route or conditions. WE would like to get your input and any information you can provide. We are also looking for a bus at a reasonable price. We would be wiling to consider a fixer upper.
