FL is a great place to own, build, drive a school bus! I grew up in Lake and Sumter counties. Now in Eustis.
I've owned 3 buses and not one of them was a FL bus. I go as far away as I can. Our buses and schools are all bottom feeders.
And definitely avoid the stealerships hawking buses for ten to twenty grand.
3 grand will get you a nice bus if you don't have to have one TODAY and are willing to travel.

We're having a bus gathering and departure party for Sandi on the last weekend in Sept. You should come!

Where in Eustis do yall live? Crazy- I've met at least a few folks from my area on this site. Made real world friends from a website! Maybe you've seen us and our dog cruising in our 6 window shorty? Or seen me blasting down 19 on my green and purple moped?!
I'm on Center St! You should stop by sometime!
PM for my #

I was wondering how long it was going to take for you two to find each other.

You're in Eustis and named Scooter. CB likes scooters and also lives in Eustis.

It was inevitable.
