n. - A female demon believed to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men
It took awhile to get 'her named, but I think it fits.
She was a former Bookmobile for City of Decatur, who purchased her new from OBS, Ohio for $167,300 (replacement would cost $240K today). City lost funding in 2013 and all 3 bookmobiles were sold in 2017.
OBS custom builds Bookmobiles and Mobile Command Centers based on customer requirements, and they definitely pay attention to details ! They custom ordered a stripped chassis from Bluebird, which lists the bus as a TC/2000, but is built more like an All American. OBS supplied very
complete documentation to the Library, who kindly passed them onto me.
Succubus took a very expensive
taxi ride to get home. Despite having only 26,550 miles on her, the batteries were missing and she had been in storage for 3 years, so I wanted to give her the full 'treatment' before turning the key.
This is what a $600,000 50-Ton towtruck looks like. Good people, and that's saying a LOT in the wrecker world.
