This is my bus in September 2012 when I first received it.  I bought it from Greg at WE SELL SCHOOL BUSES.com.

I have since named her "Easy".  Click here to see why.

This is my bus April 2014 in service in Springfield, MO at a Habitat for Humanity building project.

Adding Flxible Bus Restoration Shop in California based on members recommendation:


I can't say enough good things about the people there. They have been honest, upfront and very patient from the start. I dread to think what mess I would be in if had chosen a different shop to carry out the work.
