The saga of the Crown coaches is well-known by anyone in California who knows anything about school buses or fire engines. These sleek-looking school buses are still in use today thanks to their superior design and record for safety. Rather than a "tinny" sub-par school bus, Crown Super Coaches were built to high standards and looked great as well.

This book documents the history of the Crown Super Coaches and shows the early versions as well as most of the modern variants. It documents the construction of the buses at the factory showing under-construction scenes and includes the occasional "odd ball" versions of crowns as well.

A great documentary of a great company now gone from the California scene, gone but not to be forgotten.

As one who drove these school buses to put myself through college I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in buses and transportation history, and to the fire engine buffs as well.

A very good book about the great Crown coaches, I feel they could have left the fire stuff for another book, but all in all a great review of the Crown coaches. If you are a bus fan will make a great addition to your collection. Nice to see more books coming online about coaches as niot a lot from the past was saved. I am very glad to have this book in my collection
