Should be a cover on that electronics box (upr right)? Gremlins? Tall grass growing in frame= sitting?

Being picky now will save you many bad French words later.

Happy Hunting !

Another Blue Bird

Not too sure what Gremlins is.
Yes, it's in TN. It was just moved and parked in taller grass.
County busses. Looked through them all.
This is one of our picks.

Also, I know that every bus is different and auctions are all different.
But can one truly find a good bus off auction for $2,000??
I've read lots of different stories where this is the case.
How realistic is that?

I'm looking and bidding on a bus on govdeals
Haven't checked out public surplus.

The reason why I asked the question was because the govdeals bidding prices are way more expensive than I thought they'd be.

Just an example.
The bidding price of $8510. Seems pretty steep. Right?
