I did it!!! Picked up "Lolita" today!

Absolutely in LOVE! She is mechanically perfect with some minor rust. She came to me with a full tank of fuel and everything working!
Whoo hoo!!!
Finally found a seller that wasn't a douchebag!

Fun paint job. Kind of makes me want Doritos, though... ;)

She's a 2004 International 3200. DT466 and an Allison automatic. 311,000 miles. Cruise control,front and back heat and air conditioning.
24 passenger with a wheelchair lift.She drives like a big car. Easy to park and drive. I am in love! The paint job goes. I'm going to have a wrap put on. Was going to have her painted but I think a wrap would be better. I'd like to cover the windows so you can't see in. Tomorrow I start stripping seats. I'm too tired today. I've been running around getting all kinds of tools. Harbor freight loves me today!

Awesome! Sounds like you are happy with it. That should be a peppy little thing with that engine in a 24 seater.

She cruises down the road like nobody's business. She's the bomb!
