Where will you be picking this up? Maybe the community can cheer you on as you drive past!

I'm in Christiansburg VA area, 23 miles off Interstate 81. But I work in town and would be delighted to buy you lunch if it works out.

Why? Where are the threads that compare one to the other and explain why A is better than B? Do those thread also include the (what's the proper term) commercial tour buses?

Called Progressive commercial today and got insurance for private use (2 drivers). A phantom accident on my record made a 200$ difference for the year @800$ and 20$ difference in monthly payment @80$ after initial 170$. So I got to get that taken care of cause I might have a ticket or two but definitely have not been in any accidents since the 90s. He had to override the vin# cause it came back invalid but other than that everything went smooth. *fist pump*

be sure your VIN is correct... somertimes sellers / auctioneers typo the VIN on a title and it makes for a mess when trying to get it titled / registered in your home state... so definitely verify the 2 before you leave with your new bus..
