I just noticed that out of 170 votes, there were no votes for Van Hool.. Whats the deal with that?? Are they just that sparse or not a good canidate for a conversion??

There was a guy here with a Van Hool 2002 model I think, plenty of the converted Van Hools on the road I see it all the time also they are big in the entertainer market biggest draw back they are so underpowered with the model of Cummins engine they install.
 I drive one for the school and the Riverside Casino here some times not a bad bus they drive and ride good but neither have any power with the M11 400 hp the ones will the series 60- 500hp those will haul *ss 


good luck

Was just by ABC bus in Orlando today,  Looked like lots of Van Hool Shells in there sale lot.

Looks like all those MC12s went somewhere.....

I could only vote once since I'm down to one bus now for about 8 years!

I know where there is an old FitzJohn RoadRunner that I would like to get my hands on, but I can't mention that in my own house for fear of having to live in my unfinished bus! Alone!

I'll have to check this weekend if it is still there.  It would be a large restoration project just to get it to a usable shell, but I think it has the Cummins and 4 spd manual in it.  Would be a nice short trip bus!
