Makes us all look like a bunch of slackers! I wonder how much it would cost to turn it into a school bus?

I could make my bus look that nice if I had $80,000 to spend. How about a loan?

For that kind of money I expect to see a class 8 diesel.

Re: Wow-check this bus out!

I hear the part about diesel, too much money for a gas burner a old two stroke Detroit would look better in that hole than a gas guzzler. The one in there looks like a 500 something Intertrashnal.

Re: Wow-check this bus out!

Is that an 8-track tape player in the lower middle grey panel next to the stepwell? I can practically hear "Stayin' Alive" just by looking at the interior. Either that or a Nebraska Cornhusker game. But seriously it is a cool bus in its own way. The historical Flxible ads flanking the conversion photo on that one wall are a nice touch.
