Wanted: 3/4 size Carpenter or Thomas high top

Hello everyone! I'm looking to buy preferably an early to mid 1990's model Carpenter or Thomas with the high headroom and about 8 windows. It must be a diesel with mechanical fuel injection. A wheel chair lift would be an added bonus, but not necessary. I would like the mileage to be not much higher than 150K. Lastly, I live in Texas, and would like something within a reasonable distance. Oh, and no rust.

I know, I'm being picky, but I know what I need, and this is it. Also, if anyone knows of any auctions happening in my area, please let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks guys. Yes, I cruise craigslist, ebay, and auction sites I'm aware of (Lemons, Rene Bates, Govt. Surplus...) on a regular basis. Hopefully the right bus will come up at the right price. There is one on Houston craigslist right now that is perfect, except that he wants $4,700 for it. It's hard for me to justify spending more than $3,000 unless the bus has super-low mileage and is in pristine condition. This one is a 1991 model, and he didn't list the mileage.

Talk to the guy, ask him about it. If you show an interest, he might lower the price a bit, you never know.
