1993 BlueBird "Trap Bus"

I finally got a bus! Within my budget! I pick it up tomorrow from Monroe, Louisiana. I had bid on it last friday for $1100....... and it was looking like i was going to win it for that price. Then in the last minute someone tried to sniper bid me, not on this day bud. I engaged in a small bidding war and he finally gave up at $1700. After fees, bus was mine for the grand total of $1912.50!!!!!! Ill post pics tomorrow, but for now ill post pics from the auction site.

1993 Bluebird TC2000

all it says is automatic. So im not actually sure. But the guy at the bus barn and my research point towards it being an Allison 545

Nice buy.

Where's the wheel chair lift? You're going to have to put a wood stove in there the hard way.

Congrats on the bus! Looks like this has been a good few weeks for bus buying for quite a few of us. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.
