Which auction/bus did you "sorta" win?
hehe well I was mildly looking for another bus and I wanted to learn how to use these auctions so I put a pretty low bid in but enough I could watch the proxy feature work.. and yeah i won lol..
cy-fair independent school district auction.
its a 2000 Bluebird 6 row short bus T444E / allison ? (chilichz looked at it in person and said it didnt look like a 545 or an MT643 so not sure which trans is in it? since it is a lighter duty chassis it may be a 1000?)..
appears to have white roof, tinted windows, and maybe A/C.. (it had it at one time dont know if it all is still there and works or not).
the dash looks like hydraulic brakes but the video has an air compressor under the hood so maybe its Air-ride?
alas anyway my aim is to drive it from cypress tx to either florida or ohio.
when I talked to the lady on the phone from the auctioneer she said my bill of sale that includes the VIN acts as a transit registration? ive never heard of that before.. im still not convinced that the cops will like that if I get stopped.. but then maybe yellow school busses minding their own business and not speeding or being reckless are ignored on the freeway...
my first bus came from a dealer so it was like a car, i had a title, and a temporary tag and no one bothered me..
the auctioneer mails the titles to the registered address from their office so i wont have a physical title in hand..
