Hi
Where are the photos? I was looking for one in particular. It was a MCI 7operated by California Nevada Golden Tours back in the early 70's. Gamblers specials to Harolds Club and Harrahs Reno NV from San Francisco. The colors were white and gold. I drove for them while attending college back in the day and would like to get that picture back. The company had a whole fleet of new MCI 5's and MCI 7's that I drove. The owner had the mechanics put bigger injectors in the 8V71 Detroits Diesels and that enabled us to blow off the Trailways and Greyhounds going up the "hill" to Reno. I could climb the hill in 3rd gear most of the way while the buses with the standard injectors would typically have to gear down to second gear on the longer climbs. The governors were also adjusted so we could run in the 70's in 4th gear on the flats. The transmissions were manual 4speed spicers.

I am in the process of moving the photos to a Flickr account (Free vs $70/year) So far I have the Northern and Central California photos moved. They can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/96271826@N06/alb ums More specifically the California Nevada Golden Tours photos are here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/96271826@N06/alb ums/72157671930254552

If you're going to move these photos to Flickr, can you make individual albums of where these photos were taken? I'm interested in using nearly most of your Hawaii bus photos in order to make a video.

Hi Ron, The archives are offline temporarily . I am going to move them to Flickr where I can store them for free instead of paying yearly for storage. Be patient and they will be back. Ricahrd
