Definitely Air Force, 90+ percent of the non-tactical Air Force fleet is painted in some shade of "Blue". The tactical fleet? Green, tan, or desert pink (including portions of the non-tactical fleet)

Does that mean you were able to purchase it for $5K? If so, I'll bet you got a good bus there for a good price! [Heck, the AC and generator would probably be worth that.]

Kudos to you man for not rushing and buying the first bus that came along. You got a real dandy of a bus!

Oops, actually $5.5k
The kicker (sellers idea)
$1000 down, $300 a month, zero interest for term.
(We drew up a contract, agreed to it, and he filled out lien holder's info on back of title)

He knew my situation, we emailed back & forth for a month last year...
Wanted $9k last year, dropped it to $6500 this year, and just recently dropped it to $5500. I jumped on it!

He had a buyer last year walk away because he couldn't get the second engine started...
Took me less than a minute!
Outside, set switch to ENABLE START
Walk back inside, set switch to LOW IGNITION
Pull start switch down, let it crank till it fires up.


Grandma had an Onan in her Minnie Winnie when I was 14, remote start!

11 more payments and she's all mine!
But, I plan to double up on some of them when the suburban is paid off in March.

Looked at a warehouse today that a buddy has... You could park 20 buses in it! For $300 a month with utilities paid already.
He said "why don't you just rent an apartment?"
I said "because it's throwing money away!"

At least with the warehouse, I can spread out and work inside.
