Looks fantastic! Those Eagles sure were the top dog in their day. I've always liked the distinctive look of an Eagle, no mistaking 'em.

Curious, do you know the life story of your coach? I noticed the "H" on it, wasn't Hank Jr's logo, but just wondering.

Best regards,
W.D.

Electra I do know the history of this coach from it being made in Belgium till now. It started as a Tennessee coach part of continental Trailways then it was sent to Brownsville Texas to be updated from a model 05 to a model 10 then after some years a man that owned a trucking company bought it and converted it into a motorhome had all the bells and whistles of the time put in it. Then he decided it was to slow so he pulled out the 8v71 and the 4 speed and put a 8v92 and a automatic in it. Then he sold it to a couple in the North East. They went on a few short trips with it. Then the husband passed. The wife decided to take it out 3 more time. Then it sat in a field for 10 years. Then I found her rebuilt her and getting ready for its first time on the road in 10 years and it will be from the east coast to the west coast. By the way the H was the last owners last name. So no it was never hanks bus. That would be cool though.

Wow very interesting history there. It's great you saved her from the field, which could have been the end. Great job so far, she's a proud Eagle! Keep us updated, safe travels!

Regards,
W.D.

Engine pix plz. She's a beaut! You should be thankful it's not a Hank bus. If it were a Hank bus, it might be hard to explain why the drug dog went crazy.

No it's not one of Willie's buses either. Lol I do know Willie but his buses are way out of my price range. But Hank and Willie both smoke. Lol
