If that's as deep as the water was in the lot, I could have driven every one of them out of there.

If that's as deep as it got, it doesn't even look like it was up to the frames.

Guys, thats salt water,, no matter how good ya flush things out, they are going to rot, and you can write off the entire electrical system while your at it, salt water does bad things to copper, and aluminum stuff, not to mention what the diffs will look like in one of those, I would have to pass on any NO vehicles....

It's not just salt in that water....New Orleans became the world's largest blackwater tank almost overnight

If they could be had for cheap, it might be worthwhile. There's an awful lot that makes me nervous there though. More information such as how long were they submerged and how deep was the water would be in order I think....

I dont think that links works.... brought me to a news site about some fishing story in Alaska

I looked on ebay and found an auction for one...

here is the link

The auction states "This is a collector's dream come true" ha ha collector of what? Junk busses?

Its a 93 Blue Bird / international with 147,797 miles and the bid is already up to $5,500 & the reserve is NOT met!!! The bus isint even worth that in good condition.

Too bad mine dosent have a salvage title, looks like I could make some money.

That's funny, "a collector's dream come true". Is there really a bus collector out there who dreams about finding that one great bus that was submerged in toxic saltwater. If so, he's a weirdo. I can't believe how high the bid is.

Crap, I have no idea where that link came from. Its not even the same site. Here's the one I meant to link: New Orleans to Sell Flooded Buses on eBay.
