Any projects for sale In Western Canada?

Hi all, I just got registered here, been doing my research for sometime. Your classified section are almost all buses in the US and I'm in Canada, Calgary to be precise. I'm too tired right now to go through 79 pages of classifieds trying to find a unit that isn't in a foreign country. Anyone know of any for sale in Canada?

Oh and I've already seen every current kijiji ad in western Canada, some nice units, but you gotta be picky in these circumstances.

This would totally be mine if I didn't live so far away from it. Not a skoolie, but a pretty sweet looking coach. Only a day left on it.

What did you find for a bus?

Don't just grab the first bus you find. There are options and some are better than others.

Every company does. You buy a one year policy, then cancel it a few days later when you're done moving the bus home. Of course you have to be able to float the money for a while because they'll take it on your credit card and mail a refund check a while later or some such thing, and I recognize that could be difficult in some circumstances.

A 1969 gmc. Previously camperised by a licenced gmc mechanic but then vandalized and left sitting neglected for a few years. And no it's not the first one I seen.

Yeah family wagon I know I can do it that way, but $ you know. I can leave it where it's parked now for a few weeks so I'm not in a rush, besides the old gas has to be flushed out of the tank and lines. I'll post some pictures in a more appropriate forum. I'm sure some will laugh.
