Talking Looking for a bus in MI

Lookin for a bus in GR, I am going to convert it myself, so perhaps just one that has been gutted? I would like it to be an older model school bus, any tips and tricks are greatly appreciated!

Michigan will be tough to find a good, older one locally, rust is going to be a Huge issue... it seems better busses coming from kentucky, and even some nice looking ones in WV at times as well...

I see buses on Craigslist all the time. People start a conversion and never finish. Many are brought in from out of state. Might want to start there.

And the school year is over soon. Should be some coming up for sale from the local districts.

Look outside the salt belt...south and/or west. It will be worth the drive.
