Encyclopedia > Fageol

Fageol was founded in 1922 and was the first company to build a bus from the ground up. The company was sold by the Fageol brothers in 1927. 1922 (MCMXXII) was a common year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ... 1927 (MCMXXVII) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will take you to calendar). ...

Their goal was to build a safe bus that wasn't prone to toppling over due to top-heaviness when turning fast corners. Therefore, they built a bus that had a wide wheelbase, and was shorter to the ground, to ensure the passengers' safety. Hence, their buses were called the "Safety Coach".

86 Wn.2d 256, JOHN SCHROEDER, Respondent, v. FAGEOL MOTORS, INC., ET AL, Petitioners. (2255 words)
The defendant Fageol contends that the criteria utilized by the trial court is limited to cases arising under RCW 62A.2-316, and is not intended to apply to cases pertaining to RCW 62A.2-719(3).
Stromme, supra, without addressing the fundamental question of unconscionability in a manner required under the provisions of RCW 62A.2-302, we hold that the decisions of the trial court and the Court of Appeals are reversed, and this cause is remanded for a hearing consistent with the requirements set forth herein.
Therefore, in the absence of a separate contract for indemnification between Fageol and Cummins, there is no basis for imposing the entire burden of liability on the manufacturer, and insofar as this issue is concerned, the decisions of the trial court and the Court of Appeals are affirmed.
