170ish Buses on the auction block

I haven't looked through it yet, but it looks like they have pretty much every style you could want.

Wow, 13% B.P. is kind of high.

Many of these busses have been up for sale before and didnt sell. About 80% are rollers for salvage use. Many of the rollers are propane too, which likely isnt your cup of tea for a Skoolie. But there are a few potential gems in there!

In particular I think Lot #14 may warrant further investigation if you are looking for a conventional style with a DT466. Several good FE's in the bunch too.

Just for the record...there was a little book published a while back called "The Millionaire Next Door". In it they listed various callings & professions. The job title with the most millionaires...Auctioneer.
Which makes sense if you think about it. They typically don't have a storefront to keep up, they have no inventory to maintain or pay taxes on, and...they make money on every sale even if the actual seller takes a loss.

Not a bad gig.

Yeah, I noticed the Lemons auctioneer in TX. Not a real good name for selling used vehicles.
