Hi Guy's,

Does anybody know of a Rusted or burnt out older Prevo?

We could have some fun here.....

I'm thinking we get up a collection and register a non running, or burnt out shell into the rally.

We could find a volunteer that would dress up like some rough country folk [um, um, we may have some allready!  ;D]  and we pay them

to blend in with the Rich, have fun, and take lots of photo's....

Oh, come on... It could be a great April Fools Joke and we could print it in the mag..? :D :D :o :o :D :D

Video tape it and submit it to Hollywood as the new "Prevost Hillbillies".   ;D

It would have to be operational though in order to drive in.  But let it be an old wore out smoke belching inegine and grinding transmission.

Hey, I think I saw that on eBay ... they still wanted $50k for it because it's a Prevost.  ::)

Jeez, I know where there's  a late 90's XLII with a minor burnout and no engine or trans for about 1/5 of the 50K of that one Skip!

Never ceases to amaze me that people have prove that they have "made it" with ostentatious Prevost buses, buying into country club type condo parking places, etc.  I guess I just like to do it my way without thought to what others think.  Good Luck, TomC

Sorry the one I posted is at a salvage yard.

Axles and Gears, Inc.  d.b.a. C&H Truck Parts
567 Old Highway 20
South Sioux City, NE 68776
Phone: (800) 360-6911  or  (402) 494-6866

What suprised(scared me) is some of the salvage yards are claiming junk metal on these is 5k then another 10k
 for usable parts etc etc by the time I added it all up it was more than I payed for my bus.......and mine runs!
 well sometimes when the wind is coming from the right direction on a cloudy day whith the moon waning :)

   Go figure.

 One place even talked about breaking it down to the sub frame and using it as a hay hauler......NO thank you

Now look guys...we're not ever going to get the friendship of our fellow Bus owners of the Prevost community unless we treat them the same way we treat each other.  Granted not many of them would like to admit  they're driving a Conversion but I note that the application asks who the converter was.....hmmmm.

We have some really great Prevost owners in our midst...Ed Rolle, Bob Younkin to name a couple. And
I'm sure there's more to come.

So, let's get a grip and quit piling on like we do with the GM guys. Every one is allowed a mistake or two the the Prevost people, liked the GM guys, will learn theirs soon enough.  The GM guys think there is safety in numbers.....wrong!

How many people does it take to change a light bulb in a Prevost?  Just one.  He stands there...holding the bulb...because the Prevost guys know the world revolves around them.

Egads! Almost like those Scenicruiser guys!  ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

NcBob...you said, "Egads! Almost like those Scenicruiser guys!                       
"

If you are where you were last time I saw you...I know of at least three of us Scenic guy's that have 9 Scenic's among us that are going to be in your neighborhood next weekend.  Don't make us have to "Pay you a visit!" ;D

Bob, your envy is showing again. Maybe you should check your meds  :o

How is that muffler issue comming along?

BTW, It ain't the prevost owners I am laughing at, it is ANYONE that will pay that much for a rally! Seems a bit odd to me. But there's lots I don't understand . . . . .

BTW, I'll be in your area next weekend if you want to see a real bus  ;)
