The fabled "AVENUE B. & E. BROADWAY" bus company's three routes were taken over by MaBSTOA.

Well into the 70's, this "indy" company was quite popular with bus fans, as the company was still operating MACKS (these buses were the very last MACKS to operate in the City.

Let's take a nostalgic look back to the days when "buses still looked like buses"....... Wink

Talk about "ANTIQUES"(!!).........these ancient relics were still hard at work, carrying AVE. B & E. BROADWAY passengers when they were caught on camera in 1958......

For the MACK fan of the 1970's, the "AVE. B" was indeed a Mecca.......

When this photo was snapped, MACK suburban #504 was a rare specimen, indeed.

Imagine this handsome relic as a museum bus today........

Remember, once upon a time, when most of us thought that the New Looks would "be around forever"??

Time flies by.....much too fast........
