Here is another one.

Sorry Kyle, this one is taken!  ;)

Couldn't get a good pic of the front, too close to his shop, so here's the rear view.

My wife is very happy we live in Texas. Because if we lived anywhere close to Coach Maintenance she might be another bus widow. Don't tell her I said that, OK.

I hope someone can carry on his work after he is gone into bus heaven. I was told most of his stuff goes to the Pacific Bus Museum, not sure though. It would be a bus restorers dream, course you would have to own a bank to do what really needs to be done. He really has some coaches that need saving.

8028 belongs to my buddy David Pagel of Anderson, CA. He drives for Greyhound currently. Bus is nearly finished. Very nice restoration. He and Ted are good friends.
