hey Rudy- wanted to say hi, and wish me luck, I bid on a nice bus today, will know on the 10th of Dec if I am the high bidder. Nice '99 Thomas 78 passenger rear engine, 5.9 Cummins with the Allison Mt643 auto trans, very clean and has always had superb care from the small school district where it has lived it's whole life. I think it has about 125K on the odometer. It seems I never get to keep the nice buses I get, I always need $$ to pay bills, and then I get outbid on the ones I really want. I'll see if the bad luck streak gets broken this time!
On the bus color debate, why not just add some red and have a patriotic paint scheme? Sort of like Capt. America's chopper? If you are going be bold- go BIG BOLD!
