Dateline  -  Aguascalientes, Mexico

I've got some more info about the elusive 4104 that I saw last year at the bus station here, apparently still in service.   A few days ago I took the Primera Plus service from here to Mexico City, and while waiting to get my bag of food and goodies before boarding I asked some Primera Plus staff about the 'muy viejo camiĆ³n GM Americano'.   Amazingly one of them knew of it, and he said he thinks it runs only during the annual fair here, the Feria de San Marcos (maybe the largest fair in North America), possibly as a relief service to one of the smaller towns near here.   He said he's not seen it at any other time except then.   Unfortunately I'll be gone from here before the fair starts this year, so there's no chance of my finding out more for now  -  last year I was here during the fair, hence my sighting of it.   If I could ride it to wherever it goes, wouldn't that be fun to be in a 60 years old GM still in revenue service?   I saw an Eagle at Tijuana's Central Camionera a few years ago, still in service and sounding good with its 8V71.   Who knows what other gems are still in service here?   I did see a complete-looking DINA Olimpico in a truck junkyard here, so if anyone's looking for one you know where to go!

I'm off to Tampico tomorrow for a few days, so I'll keep my eyes open for anything else interesting.

Thanks for update John. See you weren't crazy after all. We got a 4th confirmation on the old gal.

S/N 4259 on your roster? http://www.ebay.com/itm/1958-GMC-PD-4104-coach-bus-motor-home-conversion-Orginal-owner-since-NEW-/222461605380?hash=item33cbbeb604:g:JXcAAOSwU8hY4b99&vxp=mtr

Thanks for the recent Scenicruiser S/N referral. Owner and I have been talking. I had lost track of that one since 2007. Great to know it is still around.

On my list now, thanks.

Tom, I was happy to connect the 2 of.you. A seated Scenicruiser has got to be a rare gem nowadays.

Jon,

Here's another in Naples, FL. (not sure if you have seen this one). A guy on the Monkey site posted it. He has agreed to attempt to get S/N.

Nope, never seen that one before, looks like a unique one. Can't wait to get a series number.  Thanks.

S/N 3065 just bought in Naples, FL by Adrian of Sarasota, FL. He already owns a Scenicruiser. Installed batteries, changed some tires, fired right up. Considering driving home the 126 miles, or maybe Landoll. Update photos and video over on Bus Grease Monkey site. Another great save!

Jon, I saw PD4104-3901 (motor home) today at the American Truck Historical Society Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa. Owned by Jerome Comcowich. He lives part time in Hawaii, and the bus home base is Denver, CO.
