Keith its a 3208 has already been rebuilt and new transmission,great running bus just aged out by state law we got it strait from the bus co.and I got a job too! The other drivers never asked the boss what he wanted for the buses so they missed out and are a little jealous the new girl got one of their favorite buses.
