No turbo on that one, though.

I love how the auctions stall at $5K- max for credit card.

Buses look super clean. I'd buy one if they weren't such a hassle to convert. It'd sure be a looker in my part of the World.

The 1980 is over my price range and still has not met reserve

Dang it man.
I've tried several times to get in on this whole Crown ownership thing and it just doesn't ever work out.

these crowns seem to have collector value as well as being know to have been built well and last so people want them for conversions.. so its a double whammy. bidding against classic-bus-enthusiasts as well as converters.

plus being that most are in california.. means little to no rust and probably drivetrains that are built to handle hills and highways..

so maybe a triple whammy to bid against.

if you buy a bus over 5K how is it paid for? wire the funds to the auctioneer?
