Back to the buses

Okay, now that I've made a post that didn't have anything to do with buses, we return to our regular programming on the blog of the pastor of Bible Baptist Church -- and that definitely involves buses.

It looks like the fellow we sent the bus to in order to have the engine replaced may come through big for us. They had agreed to at least get the new engine running so we could drive it back here. But when our man went to pick the bus up, it broke down again in the same way. Then the owner came out, the father of my newspaper editor. He talked with our man, and apparently told him that if we would bring the old engine over, he would see that it was rebuilt and installed at no further cost to the church (that's a big job, depending on what level of rebuilding is done.)

The bus we purchased is still running fine, although that valve still needs work. The man we bought it from is supposed to come by and fix that sometime this week; he still hasn't asked us to pay him, since the work isn't all done yet. It's possible we can get another bus from him for the same price.

I still don't know if the white bus in for the engine replacement is ever going to run again. But at least we have one that seems in good shape and the possibility of acquiring another. Then if we can get just one of the three clunkers we own into some kind of rolling condition, we should be set for long enough to replace the van, Lord-willing.
