Re: Goverment Auction a good sorce?
I found my bus on PublicSurplus.com auction, bought it sight unseen, only one photo of it online. It did have contact information for the Harrisonburg City School Bus Barn and a contact name, so I called and inquired about the bus prior to purchasing it. They were friendly and helpful, and answer my questions. They were selling it basically for one reason, it was too old to stay in the fleet, the city had a 15 year service limit. They also told me the only known problem was a broken brake chamber mounting bracket, that they welded in order to make it drivable, but it would need to be replaced to pass inspection. I paid $2100 for it...that was nearly 3 years ago, and it still fires right up and runs like a champ. It was a five hour drive home from where I went to pick the bus up at...

...your motor home used to be a school bus!
...Your living room has a steering wheel!
...Your home has brake lights
