I like it, but it has a bunch of unique bidders and enough time for the price to skyrocket.... The last few buses I've tracked on the auction sites went for more than double my max price... But to be fair I"m not really in the market!

That looks like a bus where you could get a lot of work done!

Someone got an amazing deal... but it wasn't me!

Sounded like it was not a suitable cross country traveller, with a top speed around 50mph!
