Hi All! Here is a pic of the nose of our 67 model 01.
A month down the road I have already replaced the running water system, taken out the black water tank for hole repair (due to a screw under the tank and rubbing a hole) and started on the paint on the upper section. If this pic comes out I will post more.

Hi Mike and Kathy.

Looks like a great coach. I think you might have pasted a thumbnail. I tried to get to your photobucket account to see if I could help you load the photos. No luck.

When I posted this picture, it looks like Photobucket has made it much easier. You simply click on you photo and then click on the img selection in the box below. In Firefox, the code is copied automatically and then you simply do a paste in this box and voila.

Here is another one:

Very nice 01! At least you have the Eagle emblems, I'm jealous!

I was just thinking that it was brand new when I graduated from HS, boy does that hurt! ;)

Thanks for taking the time to show us! We love pictures! :D

Jim,
Thanks for the tip. I saw the tab at the bottom on the photo but wasn't sure what it was for. I will go back in the album and post additional pic's.

Paul,
There was some Eagle emblems like ours on Ebay earlier this week for $500 bucks. I graduated the same year. Boy do I wish I had all the cars and other toys from back in those days, I would be set!

The brass hubcap in the center wheel is a nice touch, you do that? How about the rear, they the same?

Hi All!
Here are some new pic's of things we have been doing over the last year.
We changed out the front seats with new Flexsteel seats that we found in Camping World for $100.00 each. After joining the club we ended geting them for less than $90.00 ea. Kathy found new lamps and shades plus some tropical nick nacks to include Margaritaville items. We have replaced air hoses, painted the bays (top, bottom and sides), painted as much as I could get to in the engine compartment to include the engine. Carpeted the front bay after painting it and the bulkhead. Got a generator slide from John Mellis, had it modified to fit the Onan 7500 QD and installed it in the second bay on passanger side (still need to wire it into the bus) along with a fuel tank that I had made (25 gals). I still have to swap two bay doors for the generator as the generator was at one time on the drivers side but that bay is now taken up with water tanks, propane and black water tanks. Thank goodness both doors are EXACTLY the same size. We also replaced the original headlight assemblys (wanted to keep the original look) as the adjusters had dryrotted. Got the new set from Ed at Jefferson Bus. Added another 40 lb propane tank to the bus also. Follow the link below for pic's.
