Theres an FC out there somewhere,with an 8V92 in it.
They didn't set the motor down low,it was tall and took up lots of living space.
It was a supposed drug running coach,the holding tanks had tanks inside of them with access from inside the coach.
It was sold at auction by the Feds,as the story was told by the guy that bought it,at the RIV one year.

Not much of a story, more like idle thoughts while awaiting the world to start back up.


The dead 78 is long gone. State Farm paid me the full insured value, as a total loss. I watched it sale at the Underwriter's Salvage Auction for a couple of thousand dollars.



Anyway, I have owned 17 RV's with the dead Bird being number 12. I now only own number 16, a MB Cruiser Forest River, which is built on the Mercedes Sprinter van. This van was (is) my toad that I pulled behind several Class A's.

I noticed a fellow in Durango,CO has a 1966 Wanderlodge FC31SB that has been for sale since August of 2016 for $ 10,000. The photos show a clean bus that is painted the exact color and pattern of Wanderlodge # 1.


Yesterday someone posted, here, a low mileage 6v92 with a Allison, frame-cut out of a fire truck. (can't find the link). This got me thinking about a project I should not be thinking about.
