Honestly... this is kinda how it went.
I told myself that I will bid on this bus up to “X” dollars, “X” dollars came and it was not at the reserve... so I bid a bit more. Then another dude or dudette started biding at the 3 minute mark, resetting the timer (I dont know how they get away with that). So I figure I would bid a 25 here and there just to see what the reserve was.... yeah my last bid, WELL over what I wanted to pay, and the other dude stopped bidding.
I sat and watched the timer run out at about 1500 over... but I did get the bus I wanted, right size, engine in the front, ZERO rust (that I can see), has a back door, no side door to mess with, runs real good (small transmission leak that I will need to fix), and lowish miles.
Not complaining at all, I did spend more than I wanted, but my mind is racing with all the things I am going to do to her...and she is gonna like it
