Smile I just won a bid!

Hey, Skoolies!

I just won a bid! It's from my local school district.. and they keep their buses in pretty good shape.

In just a few days, when I officially pay for it, I will own a 2002 Blue Bird bus. I finished the bid at $425. Now, the tricky part. I took a small gamble and have to bring it back to life!

The auction page says the running condition is unknown. It's very possibly been sitting for years and out of service for years. It may be running but out of service from the school district. Not sure.. I guess I'll find out within a week or so.

Good luck! Make sure when you arrange a tow truck they know what they are towing. My daughter had one show up that wasn't able to tow the bus after a breakdown, even though she told them it was a bus. Their problem (as in no charge), not hers.

thank you for the advice! I actually may be able to have a friend of a friend tow it.. which would be amazing. What kind of bus did your daughter get?
