Obviously, no one's read the ad fully. This bus has had probably $8k-$12k worth of work done to it. Granted, it may not make the bus worth the asking price, but you're getting a lot of worry removed with that price as well, assuming there are receipts for the work done. If you did this much work to a vehicle for someone else, you would expect compensation for your time.

Yeah, trolls gonna hate. I have all the receipts. Over $13k put into engine and making sure the bus runs properly alone. The new turbo was $3k by itself. If someone wants to buy a bus that's gonna cost a ton to keep it running, be my guest. If they want a bus that's gonna run without problems for years, buy this one.
