Hey what do you think of this?

Not sure if this is the correct place to post but just came across this bus on cl. Any ideas what it could be?

School Bus - $500

Well if you can't get it to run, it's probably worth more than scrap. Owner can't even be bothered to look in window to see if it's an automatic? I'd guess sitting that long in Fla. it's pretty rusty. I'd pass.

A shitty CL ad and a couple pictures won't tell you what you need to see.



There's a fine line between paying someone to haul it off vs. trying to make $500....

Only a visual inspection would determine if that line's been crossed.

$500 headache?
$500 gold mine?

I wouldn't drive to venice to look at that.
Looks worse than many of the free buses I've seen.
No title, not running, old and crusty... Its not worth anything unless its free, you have a really badass tow truck, and the scrapyard is closeby.

If it indeed has a gas engine, I'd pass, unless you don't plan to drive it far or often ... at which point the engine becomes more of an afterthought.

Hard to drive without legal rights to the vehicle to get a tag.
