Looked At 3 Buses Today !!!!

Hi Skoolie Folks

So me & the wife could not wait lol !! ...... After finding out our local school division had out of service buses yesterday , i thought a half day off work was in order .

Was not too easy to find the Yellow Beauties as they seemed to be still in Canadian Hibernation lol ... The buses are at the school maintenance yard , all had a thick binder full of each buses service history .
We kinda fell in Luv with Mary , she has a row of 10 windows & was born in 1994 , 186k miles but with a $10k replacment motor showing in the records a few years ago . Mr mechanic says she was a great bus , has the non electrial motor & last safety inspected in 2012 .

Was 1 of 3 we looked at .

So come on folks what ya think ???? .... if we want it we need to submit a offer .

We Have Tried Several Times To Upload Photos Of Todays Bus Locating , But Constantly Says Quota Has Been Reached ..?? We Never Uploaded Pics Before

Hope you get her so I can see pics and then follow your progress as you make her "yours", that is the fun part.

This is a picture of my shortie, her name is "School Daze".



The above picture is when we brought her home. She looks better after we got her home and gave her a GOOD bath, after sitting for 5 years she was DIRTY to say the least. Will have to find her "after" picture.

Re: Looked At 3 Buses Today !!!!

Well, if you truly are hobbit sized people, then the low roof Thomas may be okay, but I would think more headroom would create a nicer feeling of space and also allow more room for upper storage cabinets. I personally could not be in that bus for more than a few minutes unless I was sitting down. Another forum member, GlennC, has a low roof Thomas, and I've not heard him complain about feeling cramped, but when I went to check out his bus, it was really uncomfortable for me to be in there. But of course I'm 6'4", so I was kind of like Gandalf moving around in the Baggins' house.
