A bunch of Ex-Capital Metro 1976 AM Generals were bought by Tejas Coach Works in Mineral Wells, TX. They were noted for sale on their website years back. http://www.tejascoach.com/bus.html

My friend got in contact with them a while back and the owner of the place sent him some low resolution photos. He sent them to me early this year. Some visible units include 500, 507, 508, 520 & 523. I wrote this info on the wiki too.

I really wonder if you're a mouthpiece for NFI. Do you work for them or you simply love NFI buses? When I read your posts, I really get an impression that NFI is on a roll of late.

I have access to the news feed, since NFI is a public company the news feed is generally updated whenever there is an announcement.  Other large North American manufacturers (Nova, GIllig) aren't public so their announcements aren't public.  If people (on here) don't care about learning about new orders I can simply not post anything.

I thought you are NFI fanboy judging by your frequent quoting of NFI press releases. Now I understand.

Disclaimer: My transit fanning experience revolves pretty much around Gillig as I lived in Florida for 6 years and in the South for the rest of my 16-year sojourn in the US. And Gillig is the dominant heavy-duty bus brand in Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee (the 3 states I fanned the most) to say the least.
