wine barter

my step daughter just got a message from one of her friends - the friend had gone to look at property he wanted to buy, but by the time he got there the property had been sold - then he noticed a school bus on the property and asked if it was for sale - 'yes', said the owner, 'I want it gone - give me a bottle of wine and it's yours' - I don't how many of you are familiar with Kootenay pass between Creston and Salmo, but it's long and steep whether you are climbing or descending, with grades up to 8% - the guy said it drove fine over the pass - 'zipped right along' - pictures show a 12 window ford - probably early 90's - a couple of small owies on the front fender - seats are out, and some rudimentary bunks are installed - diesel and air brakes - ford

How expensive is wine in Canada?

Worst-case, you could turn it into kennels.
