Re: Buying a bus TODAY

The drive was kind of a plus for me. It gave me a great time to learn how to drive a bus. I now feel I could drive anything

On a side note, There is a 96 model amtran(I believe) for sale in Nixa, MO. I ordered parts for mine and he was telling me about it being a good deal at $2000....but its got over 160k on it and its a dt444(7.3L psd). I dont think I want to buy a bus with a tranny that has 160k on it.

Re: Buying a bus TODAY

I can understand that. The bus I have has probably 150000. I am from the school of thought that a fleet bus from a school probably has had fair maintenance. The at545 is speced out so much because it has a bullet proof reputation. It is always better to have less miles but the right equipment with decent maintenance will go forever.
Any ideas on what your going to it?

I am used to truck trannies. My truck is a 1996 for psd with 305k and its in great shape


My wife and I are going to convert it into a ultimate toy hauler. A build thread will be coming this weekend.
