Hello,

I recently (11/12/2018) joined the Bus Talk Forum after viewing the photos for several years. I guess you could say I am now reading the website for the articles. Razz

About me: Grew up in Chicago in the 1970s and 80s. Until moving to San Diego in 2000 the furthest I lived from the city limits was downtown Evanston. Although I was a really little kid when trolley buses were retired and only four when we moved away from a trolley bus line (77 - Belmont) I still have fond memories of the sound of the Marmon-Herringtons to and from shopping trips, dentist appointments, and trips downtown. I also remember being terrified of getting off the things.

My favorite bus of all time was the Flxible New Look bus. They were the first "new bus" I remembered. It was always a treat to ride one when the 64, 88, 91, and 90 still had the old Twin Coach buses. My next favorites were the MAN articulated, Flxible Metros, and MAN Americanas. My least-favorite buses were the Gillig Phantoms we had in San Diego when I first moved there.

Anyhow, I look forward to contributing and reading others' contributions.

I love this site for all the info in it. My favorite bus is the 40 foot fishbowl bus but I lived in the country so I din't get to ride the bus but a few times. I saw a bunch and had my favorite features. I didn't know that changes were made because of improvements needed. I got a computer in around 2006 and the first thing i searched for was the fishbowl bus. Now I am saddened to see that there is not a lot of people on the forums. I see facebook with a large number of fishbowl bus fans . I don't do facebook.
