Dan at Silver Eagle can tell you all about it .....we had a discussion one time about the 04s and 12s .....he even knows where to get some of the parts ...I believe Bus and Car in Belgium still had some parts
I do the difficult everyday ...the impossible just takes a little longer.

I'm gonna pick Clifford's brain one of these days and put together a good history page for our site.

I just spoke to Michael at KrafTours. They have sold both of their Model 12s but he is going to see if he has any pictures he can send me to post.

Here is a KrafTours 12 from busexplorer.com. Looks like busexplorer don't allow linking to pictures. Click the link to see this bus.

I knew his dad sold both one to a American Airline pilot and the other to a school which still has it as seated coach. Mike was always going to overseas and bring back some type bus.There was another tor operator in that area Wagoner Ok that ran Eagles and done repair work and service on Carmens Eagle Sonja has photos of it.FWIW Sonja and the guy in Wagoner are the ones that headed me in the right direction on buses and that was THE EAGLE

It would be nice to have a history page here, then I wouldn't feel so stupid! ;)

I just have not had the time to read the history on the other sites.

Thanks for enlightening me! :oops:

Thanks Clifford!

Good things take time, right?

I'll be looking forward to the information on the best Eagle Site on the Net!

Also having it here in one place makes it easy.
