There are more than PLENTY great buses on the east coast.
My bus has virtually zero rust and its a freshly retired 1992 Ward. Its a 23 year old bus thats spent its whole life here in the east.
By the way buses from Ohio tend to be very well cared for but some of the absolute rustiest in the nation. Same with Michigan.
Op some of the best bus deals I've found have been in Maryland and Jersey. I saw a very clean Thomas RE go for 1800 recently in Md.
Buses from Ga are usually really.good, too.
Merry Xmas to all btw! Hohoho!
