I PULLED THE TRIGGER!!!

Ok, well me and my buddy just got back from BUS & CHASSIS LLC in Brentwood NH. And after some debate on whether or not I should buy another one and sell the one I have. (See "need advice on a decision" post) I ended up getting a 98 Thomas International 71 passenger hydraulic conventional raised roof 466E with 111k miles for $2,300.

My buddy also bought one of the same and his has only 65K on it. For the same money.

Re: I PULLED THE TRIGGER!!!

Congrats on the newer bus! You'll have to let us know if it has significantly more power than the DTA360.

Oh yeah. The one I decided on was very quick. Believe it or not it was comparable to the 444E on a blue bird we also took out for a test drive! Much better!!

Now I just have to sell my 93!

Check your spam box if you do the Craigslist thing too. Mine bounces probably 75% of replies I get into there.

That's a smoking deal on a bus. Well played, sir.
