Greyhound MCI-9 Bus Conversion We Called Home
The post for this Throwback Thursday is an “On This Day 10 Years Ago” post (from this point forward OTDTYA), which I now realize is actually getting into a time period that is presented on my blog. The very first posts on my blog were in March 2001, which we posted three articles about our…
Our Bus Conversion MCI MC-9, Detroit Diesel 6V92, Allison Transmission
For more reasons than can be expressed, we are selling our bus that we called home for more than 5 years. It has been up in Colorado for the last two years and needs a new home. Below is how it was listed on eBay. It was a successful auction and the new owner now…

Our MCI-9 Bus Conversion is Under Way with Painting

Finding the Right MCI Bus for Conversion, What are We Thinking?
After the quilt show in Fort Lauderdale we headed for Heartland Motor Coach in Ocala, FL (update: they are no longer in business) to look at a few buses they would have that might be suitable for our new bus conversion project (or our traveling home). They had two or three that we were interested…
