Thanks for the congrats, Desiree. We'll do what it takes to make things work.

No capsules, concoctions, or contraband involved. Lack of common sense comes natural to me

Are they, like, still waiting for you to come back with their bus?

Nope, handed them a wad of cash and hit the road for Seattle for a couples days before heading back to No. Ga.

I think it’s a great looking bus! You wouldn’t have gotten it cheaper because you were bidding against a reseller. I have been following those five buses to see what they would go for. The reseller only ended up with two of them.

3509 is a nice bus. It may be me, but they started 3509, 3510 and 3511 with starting fluid, which I don't like. The batteries are shot, but tires on these all of the 6 window buses looked great. I did not check the tire date codes.


Air ride seat and A/C should give you a nice ride back to the house.


We had second thoughts and decided for a 7 or 8 window bus (which we haven't found yet).

Fantastic!

Perfect size bus. And the price is perfect, especially for no rust. Cheap rust is a very expensive thing to buy. I did essentially the same thing, only farther away. I bought a 7 window Freightliner Thomas in Alabama. I live in northwest Washington state. I literally won the thing on auction, got a plane ticket, and was on the shuttle to SeaTac 4 hours later. It was a Thursday, and I had to make it to the school district office to pay for it before the end of business Friday. Everything worked out perfectly, and I drove it 2900 miles back home without a hiccup. The worst thing about the trip was doing it solo.

Yeah man! The wheelbase looks short enough you could turn donuts!

Congratulations on your acquisition. Now the fun really begins!
