I see, so I am preaching to the choir!

I couldn't find a diesel pusher school bus on CL or Ebay for less than 5k.

Well it just ended. My 2500 sport bid would have won me this bus. went for 2600 with the fee for the auctioneer. God. Damn it. I wish Maryland weren't so far.
Congrats to the lucky winner, enjoy doubling or tripling your money, sir or mam.

Yeah, I'm gonna go for one of these as soon as I make a friend in Md who can pick me up at an airport or bus station.
I could drive one of these back here to Fl and sell it for at least 4k on ebay or cl.
That would help to fund my Senator.

I like this one A LOT. If it were in towable distance, I'd buy it and have it towed to me. http://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa...192&acctid=685

Not if I beat you to it! But 1200 miles is an expensive tow.

With the tow and repair, you'd probably still come out ahead of paying 5-10k.
Too bad it isn't a runner, I'd have put in a bid for sport by now. Buses like this are getting tougher to find. That 8.3 is awesome too.
