That thing is so cool. It showed up right next to the bunch of late-80s Gilligs. Any opinions on those? I am tempted, but not sure what they're worth.

But when I talked to them about it the only reason their getting rid of it is the California emissions stardards now, they where restricted to using only 1000 miles ayear

Beautiful bus. I've always liked that style. It's even stripped on the inside already, and the price? I think it's totally worth it, since my experience with buses is a whole 4 months.
