Hello

I`m Marcin (Maxim) from Poland. Bus was my dream car for about 7 years, and finally I bought it yesterday! I don`t remember when I was happy as yesterday Smile It was hard to take cause the owner didn`t want to sell it for years, and Bus was standing outside.

Here is short video form yesterday action.

Can't see your video but I bet your happy. Swing wide on your first practice turns and scare your passenger by stopping close to a wall.

That is so funny. I did that after I put safaris in my old DC. My wife walked in and almost hurt herself laughing.

I also can't wait to see more. Gotta love guys who love these old things so much that they will attempt to "fix 'em up" somewhere that has very little support for their addiction. Thank God for the interweb and FedEx!

Find any cool stuff in there? If it's still too dirty to have lunch in it, at least you could sit and have a beer!

Hi Rogacek, yes we will meet for sure Wink

I unlocked doors finally. They wasn`t opened for few years. It took me three hours to open the passenger doors but we did it! I will try to fire up the engine next weekend and if it will work I`ll post first drive video Wink

Thanks for comments for all Wink
