Just thought I'd give you FMC/Bolens fans a heads up that on the 8:30pm central episode of Counting Cars tonight on history channel,they will be working on a FMC motorhome.I just read about it on the website so I have no clue as to content. Happy viewing!

Hey now, that's my parts supply...ever since that "cash for clunkers, debacle" I've had to keep my own inventory.

Thanks for sharing this, although I didn't catch the show and don't think I even knew they existed., they've caught my attention and seem to have a following similar to the folks that go for their Gt's and such. WAY Cool!!! :thumbs:

I dug up some stuff...(Does OB know 'bout these rascals?)

"... the FMC Motor Coach; only one thousand fifty of these collector motor homes were built from 1972 to 1976. We are all proud owners of a rare and beautiful accomplishment in mechanical engineering...our goal is always to get more FMC coaches to join us and attend a rally where other owners can share the rewarding and sometimes trying experiences of owning an FMC motor coach.

Of course I knew about them :D :D :D

 

In fact, the wife and I were giving it some serious consideration WAY back in the day when we bought our first new motorhome.

 

In the end, it lost out to a 25' Itasca Seafarer, as the wife liked it better than the FMC.

I woulda been Sooo sshocked if you didn't and with all the miles you and Mrs Buzz log, I'm sure it was the best practical choice to go

with the one that was less likely to have you out there wrenching around between the nearest wally's and who knows where.
