Well Pat , That is a hard question for me.  That Eagle I posted was one that was assigned to me and  kept in St Joseph at the time so kinda like my own. I remember hand waxing that old girl. But later on in years I drove for a company that was part of Arrow stage lines called Chief. They were out of Omaha Ne. and again being the only guy in St Joe they gave me a bus. It was a Prevost I think a late 80s model don't remember. a prevost La Mirage it was! Wow I loved it . (drove one for Heartland motor coach too ) really weird shift pattern (6speed) and I loved it. But then as new comes comes out well you know by the time the year 2000 rollls around Im driving for heartland Motor coach (Now Heartland Trailways) and had been for 10 years and in comes the new MCI Renascence. Wow winding stair case. 36 speaker sound system. of corse all the new toys (around 450k!) i gotta say that this is one I love. Just like cars ,trucks and others they keep getting more fancy!  I remember the days of no power steering or features like the back drivers turning to steer you around tight corners (Yeah makes the driver look so good ha ha...that back steering makes  it much easier and the drive look real good!) and also the days of long trips with no radios or video screens! Used to take a portable radio and place the pa mic next to it with a rubber band to hold down the button so all could hear lol. Of corse i always gave a lot of entertainment with stories and jokes and singing ha ha. hey got a lot of requests that way...and tips! Well ya got me going better quit!
