Re: New skoolie info
When I looked at buses, he had 4 Bluebird 84 passengers "maybe" for sale. The 93's both had under 120K and were in good shape with an asking price of $4500. The 95's both had 160K for $5500, also in good shape. He agreed to sell me my choice of a 93 for $3500, but wouldn't budge an inch on the 95's. When I asked why, he said the state was making him decommission every 93 next school year, and the 95's still have two years of service life beyond that. Something like that may be the reason why two 1993's listed on that site are 2300 and 2400, while some 94-95's are much more. Or maybe they're beat up and rusty? Maybe they've been sitting in a spare lot for 3 years without any use and need some TLC? Who knows, I would call and ask lottts of questions.
The bus I didn't pick may be for sale again early soon(ish). He is currently using it as a spare for the school system. 1993 84 passenger Bluebird with Cummins 5.9/Allison auto trans, 107K miles when I looked and the price could probably be $3500. If not, early 2011 he may have the entire 1993 fleet for sale, some 5 or 6 more buses. He's in Cincinnati, which I doubt would help any with the distance issue, but feel free to PM me for contact information.
