Well just hauled home my biggest load of buses called The Eastland 8 from the name of the town here in Texas where they came from.

Projects and missing transaxles but just means there ready to be lowered.

3 pre-61 double door logo'd panels. 2 are from TipTop fried pies tagged bus 2&3. Been cool to have the company's bus 1 too.

(1) 1957 dd panel
(2) 1961 dd panels
(1) 1961 walkthru panel.
(1) 1962 panel
(1) 1965 standard
(2) 13w both wrecked hard but salvageable rust free

Very little rust now I know why people want southwestern buses.
I'll get some pics in the daylight and put them on photobucket.

I'd like a panel project as well. You've been moving some serious buses lately. Congrats on the score.

For sure but not likely 8 at a time!

That is a very cool find. As with others I myself would not mind getting my hands on one of them.
