It appears Jeff has decided not to pursue the project.

Hello!
I came here to see if anybody was talking about me!
I've been pursuing the project basically non stop since I brought it home but the Codes Guy is on my case about it being non operational! He asked me does it run, he meant right then, and I said not with the batteries in the garage! I have about 10 days left before the ********** come back around.
I have to admit that I dropped the ball on this one as I never ever thought about the non operational vehicle law here! It was safe were it was stored before but I couldn't work on it like I needed to with it an hour away. In my zealousness to start working on my coach I overlooked the obvious! He was being somewhat cool about it and said if I can start it and move it I can keep it here.
Hind Sight IS 20/20 and looking back I should have just paid a mechanic to help me set the timing and get her going instead of spending about $700.00 on moving it twice. But it's just a thing and I can tell you that she's looking better every day and looks like somebody cares about her now at least!
It Ain't Over Yet as I found a mechanic that Barter's and I'm going to get it to move one way or another!
I'll be back sooner or later with another coach IF I do sell this one or trade.
Don't write me off too soon!
Take Care,
Jeff

P. S. Is there anybody out there near me that has experience with the 534 Gasser?

Default "Whippoorwill Lodge" is Being Cantankerous...

Hello Again!
"Whippoorwill Lodge" is being cantankerous but I'm most probably sending it to the shop next week to have the engine professionally rebuilt or I'm just going to bite the bullet and re-power the Old Bird!
I'll let you know how it turns out.
Take Care,
Jeff

Jeff's Bus is on ebay now, I went by and looked at it yesterday, alot of potential there. I can say it is not a schoolie conversion, it is a factory bird, alot of the same exact stuff as my 68, still all original. I really liked it. If any one has any interest or questions on it, shoot me an email.

Default Thanks For The Compliments On The Old Bird!

Hello Sam!
It was nice to meet you and I appreciate the compliments on my fine motor coach! The guy who worked on the engine when it was in Oklahoma found it on FeePay and is very interested in purchasing it!
I once traded my second Jaguar XJS V-12 Convertible for a 1975 TMC MC-8 Crusader that came from Oklahoma. A few years later I traded another Jaguar for the Wanderlodge that came from Oklahoma! And now she's most probably going to be going back there!
Talk about coincidences!
And for the people who think it's their business I obtained the title to the coach...
I'll talk to you later.
Take Care,
Jeff

Well...most rational people like a clear title to be a part of the process when purchasing a vehicle. Additionally it's a good idea to actually be able to drive the vehicle home when the deal is completed. Any other situation places said vehicle into the realm of scrap yard material, in many cases.

Hello!
I wasn't going to let a piece of paper stand in the way of saving this fine coach. I can obtain a title for any vehicle at any time through any of the numerous title companies just like anybody else can. Some states will not even issue a title for vehicles that are a certain age any way.
I can take a bill of sale and sign an affidavit of ownership like I've done a dozen times if not more. And after having my local 5-0 Officer verify the VIN it's a done deal.
NO Rational Person would buy a Wanderlodge or any other Bus in the first place...

Good point, although a title makes it a lot more appealing to us delusionals
