Looking to buy a bus!

Hello everyone, I am looking to buy a bus to convert to an RV. I have been looking at a few on GovDeals and was surprised at the lack of bidding on this 2003 GMC Bluebird School Bus, 7.2L L6 TURBO DIESEL. 54 Passenger bus.
CAT 3126 diesel engine.
Does anyone have any history with these buses, anything I should be aware of?
Thanks,
Steve

From what I've read by google searching best engines they say Cats are not worth your while.

keep in mind most of the bidding comes in in the last hour. Most Govdeals start at really low prices ($500) and spike at the end.

Sounds like a good bus to me, just be careful of rust if its one of the 54 passenger buses up in NJ.
Don't let folks scare you from buying a Cat 3126. Its a great engine. The one before it and the ones after it weren't so great, but the 3126 is a nice engine.
