Between Manson and being a movie star, I'm sure there's some sucker out there willing to part with $40k. Heck, $40k would fund a REALLY NICE conversion.

What is the deal with that website?

I have seen at least two busses listed on their site that are offered by private party elsewhere.

There was a thread regarding a prison bus for sale in Idaho. The private seller was asking around $7500. I saw it when he put it up for sale on eBay. The auction only made it up to around $3800 and did not meet the reserve. I messaged the seller and he still has it for sale for $7500 locally.

On that website they have the same bus for $28k. I looked in fine detail and was able to pick out the same scratches on the bumpers etc. The pics posted on this site are the same pics that are on the bussesforsale.com website.

I messaged the folks at bussesforsale.com and they responded that the bus is in Idaho and I would need to make an appointment to inspect it.

No doubt the same bus as on eBay and in the thread here. Link: 1998 Thomas SAF T Liner Gutted Ready for RV Build Rear Engine 8 3 Cummins | eBay=

It looks almost as it these folks are gathering info on busses for sale by others and offering the same bus at a higher price and hoping to broker a deal.

What do you all think?

PS: I just managed to track down the ad for the prison bus: http://www.bargainbusnews.com/Buses/...asSaf-T-Liner/
