Rust Bucket Lot

I just found out that the bus sales place in Loganville, Ga. buys ALL their buses from N.Y.. I thought their prices were always high like the Tampa outfit. Now I know they are.

He's a $6k lot. Curious what his "at cost" is? Rumor is he only pays $1k.

If the buses all have seat belts and stops riveted into the windows tracks (so they can only open 5" or so), it's a dead giveaway that they're NY buses. Those stops are almost a good enough reason on their own not to buy a NY bus.

Another way to tell if itís a NY bus is the absence of black rub rails. All yellow which makes them quite distinctive.

Ah, that's interesting. My bus (a NY bus) indeed has yellow rails. Only one of the buses in the pics here has yellow rails, which suggests they aren't all NY buses. Probably some gems from New Jersey thrown into the mix.
