Was just checking out eBay and found the Don Johnson Model 15 that belongs to our new members. Pretty neat looking bus... a 45 foot model 15 with stainless on the side instead of aluminum.

Isn't the siding from an MCI? Does not look like Eagle siding to me.

That is the same siding that was on the Model 20s like I had. It is similar to MCI and Prevost but the ribs are different sizes and spacing. I don't know if 15s could be ordered with it from the factory or if someone put this on when they did the conversion. I like the stainless pretty well. I think it is easier to keep clean than aluminum.

When I first saw this bus I thought it was an NJT 20 instead of a 15. It has the same stainless sides, rubber bumper moulding along the sides, rubber fenders instead of aluminum, pantograph bay doors, etc.. I figured someone had just stretched a 20. But apparently it is a 15.

I'm trying to figure out the engine door. Looks like it lays down in front of the engine instead of lifting up.

I did not realize the siding was different before :o . Think I like the 10 & 15 siding better. It seems to set them apart. I like the look of the mirrored aluminum like what is on Boomers.
