Second sadly.


Reality is these old 2 stroke diesel buses are antiques and nearly any fix is no longer a repair but a restoration project. Efforts and frustration obtaining parts and service only increase as the fleet of operating old diesels shrinks. Adding to the demise is the liquidation of those few remaining caches of old bus parts like that yard in OK.

not rude, a compliment.

can rebuild one anyone can.

To destroy $#!% like that is a [$#!%] crime! California is screwing the whole rest of North America with their unrealistic draconian fantasy laws. A properly tuned and driven Detroit will hardly bring any attention to it's self.  [$#!%] California!!!

We are going to need all the solar we can get, once the national fleet goes to all electric.

I don't care for some CA laws but it is a beautiful state that offers a lot and people want to live there and it's over populated hence all the laws for environment some good some not so good IMO.Every time I go to CA I think 1/2 the cars made in the world use the 405  8)

Clifford, LOL not the 405 they now use 420, lol Ask Van and Don for clarification.... ;)

Don IDK where but if you find out let me know, LOL for years I tried and complained to my Niece which is the state historian and did not do any good. So I gave up and just live here.

Heck I start a fire on the ranch in the burn pile and the darn Fire Department shows up and puts it out then they tell me it not a burn day. So now I just wait till they show up to find out if it is or isn't one. :)

We'd been calling into the National Forest Service for 36 years now when we want to burn. We have a customer number they ask for then if burning is ok (no drought, dry conditions, windy, etc.) they give a permit number this way if someone (neighbors, airplanes, etc.) report smoke of fire - the permit covers you & the service knows the GPS coordinates & everything is OK. Sometimes our burns are really big (like after hurricanes, lots of downed trees & stuff) and could have flames over 30' high. We have a small front end loader & hoses to keep it under control if it gets out of hand. Never had any issues in all those years. We're in a class 10 fire area (the worst). But only bad in times of dry. With over 70" of rain annually & high humidity it's usually not an issue but we do pay dearly on homeowners insurance...due to the classification.

I agree.   It's called the 405 because you go either 4 or 5 MPH in the rush hours, if you're lucky.   (Why the heck do they call it the rush hour when that's the one thing you don't do?)

For all its shortcomings, I really can't think of anywhere better to live.   Now if they would just stop destroying perfectly good Crowns I'd be even happier.
