Re: 1989 Crown for sale 40ft Cummins 300hp

I never said that the rear-end was worked on or changed I said that I had no way of
knowing if it had been because I can't tell from the outside and I didn't drive it as I've
already conceded. You seem to spout right off without taking the time to read what
I've written. Check out my email reply to you where I answered all of your questions
and then offered a proposal right back at you. Give it a rest until tomorrow for both
our sakes.

I think this latest post of yours is way out of line and just plain silly. If you really
want to buy one of these then you'll consider my proposal. You offered to buy my
bus if I have so much faith in this other one still for sale. I said I'd sell it for a little
more than I paid for it and then I'd use the proceeds to go get this other bus. But
since you can't get here until the Spring to pick it up anyway what's the difference
if you don't pay me the $6k for my bus and I go and get the other bus and bring it
home anyway. So why don't you keep it simple and give me a $1k deposit and I
go and incur the expenses to go and get it and then fix it up and you can pick it
up in the Spring. I don't care what you do but I'm not going to go and buy this
bus and pay for storage on spec. especially from someone like you who only seems
interested in beating me up and ruining any chance to save this bus, which is
what I thought you were interested in doing. You say you have bought and sold
a lot of buses and that's pretty much what I figured from your tone and
aggressiveness. You're a used bus broker and enjoy the jazz of the deal. So
you got my deal, $1k non refundable deposit and I go and retrieve and fix
whatever is wrong with it. I will then have first hand knowledge of it's condition
and can safely say that it runs etc. I even offered to pay the storage fees
because I figure you are serious enough to come and get it in the Spring with
$1k of your money on the line. Worst case is you lose the deposit and I lose
some time and expenses. You want to play this game from far away in Hawaii
then that's the deal, take it or leave it. I'm done defending myself from someone
like you who has way too much time on your hands and an intent to poison
it for me and anybody else who might want to buy and save this Crown.
By the way, for anybody else reading this and worrying about my intentions
and weather the bus is OK and really what I've said it is. Ignore the
sabre rattling of this guy, he has issues, and I'll offer the same terms to
anyone who wants to buy it. $1k non refundable up front and I'll go get it
and bring it home and prove it is what I say it is and then you come get it in
the Spring from me here in the Los Angeles area. It will be road worthy and
ready to roll, if it runs of course, which is what he seems so fond of
hammering me with. If it doesn't run, the scrap yard owner would already
know that, and it wouldn't have been sitting there all this time, He'd have
scrapped it as soon as he got it, and none of us would be having all this fun.

What is happening in this thread? These long posts seem to contain something not right.

If someone wants to buy this bus, give them the address, and other contact info, and let them do the deal.

Third party **** always go's bad. Life changes, money is gone, ect.

This is just a bus, not a chunk of gold.

Agreed. This is starting to get absurd, lol... One thing is for sure, you are both very thorough in your posts!!

I can't get past a few lines. Since this is a family forum, I can't say what I really think.

Re: 1989 Crown for sale 40ft Cummins 300hp

All I see here is a guy who want to buy this bus but wants it at less than the 4K asking price and thinks that bashing someone over the head about misrepresentation is going to get the price lowered.

Does anyone else think it's a bit weird that the guy doing the bashing hasn't posted anything here since 2009, and suddenly is the most active member?


If I had the cash, I would be racing JakeC to AZ!

Re: 1989 Crown for sale 40ft Cummins 300hp

I am new to this forum. I am looking for a bus to convert or one that has been done already. How can I see the photos? Also how hard is it to drive a 10 speed?

Re: 1989 Crown for sale 40ft Cummins 300hp

You can cast all the aspersions you like............but it's not about beating anyone up. it's about putting facts on the table...........this was presented in the initial post as being a fantastic Crown Tandem.

With all kinds of representations made:

Reality Check: Middleman has never driven the bus, middleman has never even seen the bus run: Crown is presented only from his point of view within the context of a wholly different bus.

We don't know if it runs. We don't know if it steers. We don't know anything as to whether it brakes, if the gauges function, turn signals work...........WE don't know crap.......I'm not trying to beat anyone out of anything. I just want the truth about this Crown if I'm going to pay 4K for it. WTF is wrong with that?

Do I want to pay 4K for a Crown that has not been seen to run, has not been driven? Do I really have to answer that. All of you guys who would like to beat me up for being a Prick.........go read the original offer for this Crown that heads this thread. Then juxtapose that upon what we now know.

Here's what I know: This is a nice looking Crown: I DO NOT KNOW IF ANY OF THE MYRIAD OF SYSTEMS ARE OPERATING CORRECTLY: STARTING FROM THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION DOWN TO THE BLINKER LIGHTS.

And I'm an ass-hole? No Problem. A few of the comments on this thread by observers make asinine assertions like "If I had 4K I'd be on a flight to AZ." But you don't and if you did you might share the same thorough caution I'm attempting to exercise here: I've been in the bus game for a long time. I've owned literally dozens of buses, not for fleet use, or for charter use but for my personal use.

Criticize me all you like. There's a dream a day. But I will exercise my right to know as much as I possibly can before I commit, and I will employ every trick in the book to ascertain as much TRUTH prior to that commitment. You don't like the thread? Don't read it.

You think the Crown is great put your money where your mouth is: 4K isn't a lot but it's still 4K...........Personally I don't need a Crown, no matter how beautiful, that as it sits, as I know it is nothing more than a potential cottage, taking up space, siphoning resource............from a BUYER'S POINT OF VIEW as opposed to a dreamers point of view. I WANT TO KNOW. I don't want to hear I think, or it could, and even if.........I don't want to hear "hey even if you had to replace the engine you'd still be ahead of the game". That's just BS. Who's game? Surely not my game. I don't want to hear about "you can get parts for these things anywhere". BS I'm not looking for a bus that needs parts. I'm looking for the miracle bus as described in the original post of this thread, that magic bus like new that does this and does that.

And all my intent in the entirety of this exercise is determine WHAT THIS BUS REALLY IS. And to that end I am wholly satisfied and will proceed armed with that as I go forward. If I go forward.

So all you guys out there with your opinions and no cash, who pretend to sit above the fray and have nothing invested nor have any intention of investing; You can shoot off your mouth all you like, and pretend you have an understanding of what this exercise is all about. The bravery of those behind the anonymity of a keyboard never ceases to amaze me: Every bus deal has it's own nuance. Is this one weird? Damn Straight it is. Beating the bushes, stirring the pot, hammering home points with the intention of rendering some Truth? No Regrets. Like John Lennon said Just give me some truth..........all I want is some truth.
