Re: going to look at this weekend

Oh, I already know it is an 8.2L of the non-turbo variety. It's been rebuilt not 5000 miles ago. It's slow and trudjy but I'm not looking for a cross country machine. In front of the Spicer 5 SPD. It'd do fine I think. Besides I haven't jumped just yet. He's got someone else looking at it tomorrow. We'll see if they'll pay him what he's asking first.


As the old saying goes, "he who falls in love first loses!"

OK, was hoping you weren't going to say 6.2 or 6.5. Unlikely but you never know.

Re: going to look at this weekend

The good news in all of this is there are a lot of buses out there for sale and I do have SOME time to look. I'm looking for a bus to live in this winter so I would like to get one before it gets to late so I can get it buttoned up good before the weather turns south on me.

Are you anywhere near Bismarck? You should check out Harlow Bus. I got my bus there.

Re: going to look at this weekend

I've been by there but never stopped. Up in Rugby; right?
That bus I looked at that was all cut up was from there at
one point. They rebuilt it I guess.

Re: going to look at this weekend

Take a look at this one. Guy says this one is a runner.
Only a mother could love this one.
Guy says it's powered by a Ford 460.
It's a real morphodyte man!!

Re: going to look at this weekend

It's unique, and you are not going to miss it somewhere. I think it is so ugly it has almost passed over into cool looking.... maybe a better paint job would push it over. You should buy it and let us know how it turns out!
