Hello all, thought id introduce myself since ill probably be posting quite a bit in need of assistance. I just purchased a 1955 Fitzjohn Roadrunner FIG (with gas engine). Now as if that wasn't rare enough, this bus was actually converted into an rv by Fitzjohn at the time it was made. I don't have the full story yet but the guy has all the literature that came with it including hand drawn blueprints, service manuals, parts lists, owners manual, even the maintenance records!(all written in beautiful long hand). ill be getting it back here this week, so ill have more pictures then. I just wanted to get the ball rolling because im so excited. this thing is in crazy good condition and im in love!

That is really a nice and interesting rig.  Please let us know what you do with it in your travels and vehicle remodels.  I'm a bit jealous.  Have fun.   ;D 8)

Oh yeah...I almost forgot.  More pictures would be nice too!
