I was out today and came across an odd site in the Sudbury Star parking lot. MCI Classic 893 was sitting there, completely destroyed, broken windows and a huge hole in the passenger side. I guess transit donated it to the fire department to use for vehicle extraction with the jaws of life. I took a few pics of the bus and will add them into my photo gallery, i'll post a teaser below, enjoy the pics...be warned though, they aren't pretty :S

UPDATES!! Its been a while but im finally back to school which means more time to post things. Anyways I added a bunch of new pics to the site, and made a new gallery with the retired buses in it seeing as they are getting rid of a lot of the Classics. So stay tuned, I'm slowly getting pics of the new Nova's and should have them all in there by the end of the week. Take care and happy new year guys!

Due to problems with Fotopic.net being down a lot lately, I will be suspending the account with them and will be moving to webs.com. Its still in the development stages but you can check out photos as they will be posted as time permits. Sorry for the inconvenience but things should be back to normal in a bit!

Dave did you take the free account? Webs.com only offers 40MB of space for free but with all the pictures you posting up, I'm guessing you went with a pay per month plan?

I'll give you guys a tip with webs: if you login and click on the 'control panel' tab, you will find a link that says 'credit shop'. This allows you to access some of the non-free benefits for free. Each day, activate the '5 free credits' (it says while this special lasts, but its been like that for over a year and a half) and as you collect them, you can redeem them for web storage. I have 2 GB of storage on my free account. It's great!

You can also double your storage to 80MB by downloading their search bar, and as you search, you collect up to 10 or so credits per day (1 each search).

BTW, nice pics!

Yeah I only took the free account, but thanks for the above info, got signed up with the credits thing. I still have about 23mb of space left due to the fact that all the photos that I put on the site have been re-sized a bit, that frees up a little more space but still leaves room for good photo quality.
