The 80's weren't kind to the R-38's being tagged with graffiti but at decades end it was time for a general overhaul that would rebuild them and add air conditioning. Seen here at the 2nd Ave yard, the rehabbed R-38's will be placed on their trucks and off to Coney Island yard before being sent to their final destination. (September 14, 1987)
