[tcb] Re: Question about painting my 23 Window

We (the list) haven't had a run down on the break downs.  Who broke down and 
what were the problems?

Paul, can't thank you enough for selling the '66 to Steve and Sharon and doubly 
thanks to Sharon and Steve for selling it to Lu.   He loves that bus and we had 
the best time on our trip to CO with S/S.    Even the breakdows were a lot of 
fun at least for Sharon and me.   Can't wait for the next road trip.

My 66 that I sold to Steve and Sharon and they sold to Lu and Jane and just got 
back from Colorada in it had a green under side that was as clean as a baby's 
hieny . the inside floors and and walls and everything was the same green from 
the factory. But I think that it was a m code thing.You gotta love those clean 
Nevada busses.Still kickin my ***ss for selling it.
