Hello from Central Oregon

Greetings All,
My wife and I are new here and new to the bus conversion project. We recently purchased not one but two 1988 BlueBird C-60 buses. We are going to convert them both for living space, one will be a mobile office for my wife's Outreach Center. We look forward to sharing our project with you as we go , and also look forward to the resources here. Thank you for having us and God Bless.

Ole & Becca Hanson

We didnt start off wanting two buses, but my wife was working the deal and when it was all said and done the school we bought them from sold us the last two buses they were selling for the price they were asking for one. So we ended up with two and now we have twice the work....haha.....

Hello! I live in Southern Oregon and also just got two busses on auction. Did your busses come from the Beaverton School District? That is the auction we bid on. I bought one, my son bought one. When my son went up to get my bus on a Sunday he said there was a couple there also picking up their bus. Maybe you?
We got the seats out and that is it so far. Next step for me is prying the floor out of mine....maybe mañana. Always mañana.

Hi! I'm in southern Oregon in Ruch between Jacksonville and grants pass.

The Skoolie is on hold and I might sell it. Long story, lots of life changes. This is such a nice bus, I m not quite ready to let it go. It came from the Beaverton school district who has lots of funding so the bus was well cared for. The tranny was bad so I replaced it with another Allison. My bus only has 132,000 miles on it and I had the shop that put the tranny in inspect the whole thing while it was in the shop. Everything checked out fine. I ve taken the seats out, the worst job. So if I sell, someone will get one great reliable bus. Tell me about your bus, what have you done? Gone on any adventures? My son also bought a bus at the same auction. He wants to make his a tiny house. Email me at 14xscrewed@gmail.com as I don't come to this site very much now. Thanks for inquiring!
