Anyone heard of an "Asia Smith" bus?

This bus has been for sale on Craigslist for a while now: http://norfolk.craigslist.org/cto/2796911253.html

The photos look okay, but I've not heard of this make and model bus before. Does anyone know about the Asia Smith? Are they reliable? Are parts available? Any advice?

I haven't heard of them, but if they have a 3208 cat and allison tranny they will be just standard parts, as will the driveshaft, rear end, front end, steering components, and so forth.

Seems to be a Wayne on a Korean chassis. They weren't well received (gee I wonder why)

BUMMER.

But thanks for the input, guys. I'm eager to get started on another big old bus (*aka BOB), but don't want to jump into any old thing this time. The help and support from this site is invaluable.
