OMG The Prices! CRAZY!

George Gideon Auctioneers

I'm sick looking at these prices from our local auction.
Shits gettin redddiculous!

The first one on the list went for 11 grand! Has 14 thousand + hours and nearly 300,000 miles.
One with "excessive blowby" went for 5 grand!
Then another with "weak transmission" for 8k.

These prices are why I went nearly a thousand miles north for my bus.

Any idea why people are willing to pay so much for them there?

Exporters, mostly, and I'm sure some dealers, too. Some of the Gideon's buses have ended up in DeLand at a crappy lil buy here pay here lot.

Speaking of which- theres a crusty mid-80's Thomas gasser at a lot in Umatilla and they're asking $7500. Its UGLY.

exporters are the biggest... i know the folks at BGA say they drive busses down to the port in lauderdale all the time for export... so BGA buys a bus at auction, exporter calls them.. BGA marks it up and does nothing but drives it to lauderdale.. and makes good coin on it..

I never realized how many busses are exported..
