Re: Sinclair

So I was gonna purchase this big shuttle bus but having spent days talking to the guy and a mechanic I decided putting $2000 into a bus that's $500 not counting tires or cost to ship ($1k) -- HELL NO. But if anyone is interested in it and wants the details and what not I have let me know. No carfax info on it, so the "yeah guy before me rebuilt this and that" can't be proved. Auction ends Sunday afternoon.

1991 Eldorado Bus - Ford 460 V8 Engine

Re: Sinclair

After such a long $&%# time looking and having seen over a dozen buses in the last month, I finally found the right type, size and hopefully--good condition. Bought for less than $3k plus. I'm having it delivered to me for various reasons and it should be here April 4th.

Family is excited. Me, I'm nervous I'll reserve my excitement for when it is here in one, working piece. A few weeks to figure out where to start and try to get my hands on the materials I still needed to get started. Must be ready before mid-June. Bus is International, bluebird, 30' bumper to bumper. More details once it is here.

Time do do your "happy dance"! What date are you shooting for getting it to the point to where you can use it?

Re: Sinclair

Hey! Hey! At long last congratulations! So is it a 6 window bus? Dognose or flat-face? You know the drill - we want pics!
