I'm in Virginia, and the school district is Montgomery County Schools in Christiansburg, 40 min or so SW of Roanoke and about 3 hrs up from Charlotte NC. I had a great chat with their bus shop foreman: one of the most kind and helpful guys I've ever spoken with.

2000 Bluebird pusher on the auction block in Utah. Underfloor storage and luggage racks so it's most likely a trip bus. No mention of engine or transmission type but hopefully they've been rebuilt at some point if the bus has 294,000 miles.

I'd say starting the bidding at 3 grand seems a bit optimistic considering the mileage

The ones I'm looking at are in Christiansburg VA, about 45 min SW of Roanoke and about 2-3 hrs N of Charlotte NC.

Also, I added my location to my profile - thanks for the reminder.

Just popper up. Guys asking $850 for a running 9-window dog-nose with a 7.3 under the hood. Maybe not the ideal bus, but at that price there is a lot to like if you are on a budget! Its listed in South Carolina.

That's a nice looking medium size bus.
