Remember that it only needs to be towed off their lot to the closest storage lot where you can work on it. Then you can install the drive shaft and batteries you will bring with you before you drive this baby home. And according to Google maps that is only 3.3 miles from where the bus currently is! Now that sounds like a plan! ;)

Don't like the story of he Drive Shaft: It runs but has no drive shaft. By looking at the interior it seems they've been cannibalizing it.........and now have decided to sell it..........Looks like it has rust through in some areas...I would have asked lots of questions and if they weren't answered passed in a heart beat. love pusher's with the 8.3 a far better engine that what typically is found in Schoolies.................good luck. Look forward to hearing the real story once you get it to safety..............

I think NostrilsOTB bought the bus in the original post. 2000 MVP. Not the 1990 cannibalized Saf-T-Liner.

A Thomas with a CAT and some rust..............Imagine that. Depending on the "rust" not a bad price.............but I hate rust.............and I know where there is a very decent Gillig that has the CAT and a 10 speed Road Ranger and zero rust where the ask is 500 bucks more than this Thomas. Hmmmnnnn Gillig? Thomas? Gillig? Thomas?................GILLIG ALL THE WAY.

Well almost for the Win. LOL..............Gillg? Crown? Gillig? Crown? Hmmmnnn CROWN FOR THE WIN. The finest Coach to ever be laid down on the asphalt of America.............A locomotive traversing the Highways and by-ways on concrete rails with with rubber clad wheels of steel. Or in the case of one of my Crowns. Alcoa's.............
