Help Please..

Hi Everyone, My partner and I are looking at converting a bus.
We have came accross a 1986 PMC Elwood, 4 Stroke Detroit Engine for $20K (Aus).
Can anyone advise whether this is a good buy, or have any suggestions as to what bus would make a good conversion.

Thanks

I checked XE.com and see that $20,000 aus = $14,820 us

Most of us on this site paid less than $4,000 us for our busses (I think) so to us that may seem like a lot (it does to me)

I also did a serch and found a picture of a bus that looks more like a transit bus, which is a diffrent style from a school bus & generaly costs more. I dont know if this was a PMC Elwood - I didnt find much info on that kind of bus & I've never heard of a PMC Elwood so I dont know much about them sorry.

If it looks something like this, I think that price is a bit steep too, but I don't know how inflation is in Australia. Down Under, that may be cheap!
