Thanks JakeC...........I bought this out of the Wenatchee School District, with 157K Actual miles. It sat for almost 9 months after I purchased it on EBAY.......and I had a great deal of apprehension as to what I would find when I finally got to it.
That "worry" vanished......I hit the isolator, stepped into the cockpit and it roared to life on a half turn Aired up without hesitation and would subsequently hold that air for days: And it's been all up-hill since then. I got lucky. This coach could not have been nicer had it come off the Chino assembly line yesterday.
I am an exacting kind of guy who works hard for his Money and has a passion for Motor Coaches. That's it. All I ask in these Matters is to go in eyes open and everything disclosed. That is the ideal.
With regard the matter at Hand, the 89 Tandem: Here is a summary of my approach as contained in my last correspondence with Mike. Who I presume to represent his interests as well as the interests of the Seller. Below is the text of my last effort with Mike. I'll also put in a photo of my Station Wagon 98 Blue Bird with the 12V turbo 5.9 dialed up to 225HP...This is my go to Bus...........Shelters me and carries me, my dog, and the necessary tools to accomplish my Bus Missions..............again thanks for your comment
To be perfectly honest this entire affair means way more to you that it does me: If the bus were in fact a clone of yours, proven on the highways and byways, tested, running, driven with all systems go other than batteries and the professed "charging" problems WE would have had a deal. The deal would always involve me dealing with the one who holds Clear Title.
But it isn't that is it? It is an unknown. That carries considerable risk. Quite the opposite of how you presented it.
Me? I'm just a guy with a little liquidity who would buy this Crown, if as represented originally and it fell in his Lap. But it is NOT.
I am not emotionally invested in these matters. As I sit. This is a rolling Chassis. You have only your projection of the Crown you own to animate the available Crown.
I hope you rescue the Crown. As for me. Absent contact information for the REAL owner of the Crown: Thus the ability to offer payment, and a REAL plan to salvage it, move it, and hopefully resurrect it to function:
Absent that I am out: And I wish you luck. I already have a couple of Crowns I need to tend to this week. If you choose to provide contact information and I can strike a deal I will give you a finders fee of $500.00 If I fail in that regard to strike a deal. Of course nothing.
I simply do not have the time or the inclination to fart around with this, and the upside does not warrant any further involvement in this.
That's my last word on the subject. All the various schemes and dreams and options are over. You will hear nothing further from me with regard this. No animosity on my part toward you. I wish you the Best and irrespective the course of thing...........ultimately the Crown is afforded at least the opportunity to live again........
