Well, just got #2!

So, after I got my bus, a 1985 Internatioal Blue Bird, my daughter said she wanted one to convert into a tiny house to live in.
So, this morning on a whim, I saw a bus on the Public Surplus site. A 1991 GMC Ward 66 pass. I bid $1000 and won it for only $710! So with tax and buyers premium the total out the gate is $824.
It is gas (366) and a AT545, but it will see very few road miles, so that is just fine for what she wants. Now I just have to go get it.
For that money I could sell it for scrap and still come out ahead.

My 18 y/o son is also starting to see the light...
I'll probably be converting a Skoolie for him when I'm done with mine.
He's working on building his credit with pretty good results.

Congrats OldMopars! And thanks for turning me onto that site, it appears to be good.

I drive the 366 gas motor and absolutely adore it. Beautifully simple. Runs like a champ. Keep her under 3krpm. They are high torque low rpm motors.
