What better way to attempt to learn the forums than to post a new picture?
The quality on this one's not that great, and my other variant's not scanned yet, but I'll have it up when we can get images loaded on the site's gallery once more....
This is the first RTS prototype that GM Truck & Coach built. Very much a modified RTX/Transbus, as evidenced by the common styling of the front fascia and the side skirts. I could tolerate the RTX's styling, and actually liked the Transbus's modifications, but this just looks awkward.
Ignore the '1970' date on the image. This coach was really built early in 1973, and was temporarily abandoned as a project until late '74, when it became obvious to GM that the RTX/Transbus design wouldn't pan out once again. That design was what we all know as the RTS-II.
My father remembers working on this coach, and seems to recall that it was named 'RTS-I'. I've heard conflicting reports on whether the RTS-II nomenclature referred to the number of axles, or the coach's generation. I really think it was the latter.
Makes you kinda appreciate the styling GM gave us all with the production coach in '78, huh?
