Oklahoma sucks for availability.... seems like they all end up in Texas... Either that, or they drive them into the dirt, I guess

One thing I have to say- Florida buses are SOOOOOO overrated.
Both of my buses came from Todd County Ky.

Just a word of advise, that East Coast will probably endorse- look for auctions in the interior of the coastal states, as opposed to closer to the water. Sea air is as corrosive as winter road salt, and even more so since it surrounds the bus.

YES!

Thats why I LOVE KY buses. And Ga. Good as it gets in the East, in my opinion.

Here are some buses in OK, by the way.

yes, I agree with salty air.

Also, I'm watching every Oklahoma and Arkansas auction I can find....
I live 20 miles from ARK/OK border, near Fort Smith AR.
