Welcome to the forum Rick.

What's really amazing is that your bus is the same year and exact colors of the 4106's that I used to drive. Traildriver, myself and many drivers still consider this thei ...

Oddly enough, operators manuals issued by GM for the 5301/2, 5303/4 and 5305/6 all described foot operated turn signals as "special equipment". At that time, apparently the standard control ...

I'm not a New Yorker but I remember those traffic lights. Passing through NYC about 1960 I got pulled over for a red light violation. Cop just gave me a warning. Told me that a lot of out-of-towners d ...

Very sad news. It was Mr. L who led me to this forum. It was an honor to think that he and I had driven some of the same buses.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Rest In Peace Mr. Lins ...

Well, it sure is unusual. I wonder if it just came out of the paint shop? I notice that the windows are unlatched.

Just clicked on the link and went right into the site. That is a great looking model. Now if they just made them in 1/160 scale I'd buy a couple.

The Buffalo started in 1966 with the 4107 and continued to 1980 with the model H8H649 being the last.
The one in the photo would be a 4107 (two baggage doors). These were made from 1966 to 1979.

GBL Rebel is correct. They only flashed while your foot was on the switch. First time I drove one I went to make the first turn I couldn't find the turn signals!
