I am a big fan of the 6.2 diesel. They price is still a little higher than I would be looking for but they look nice. Ask for more photos!

I think most of us try to stay below 200k on mileage if possible. Honestly I think the Tennessee buses look better. Are you leaning more towards diesel engines now?

I'm a little leary of the Tennessee buses with super low mileage. What's the problems with them that they weren't driven leaving them with absurdly low mileage?

Question everything, then take your chances.
The TN shorties were part of the head start program. They were used VERY little. They're primo, man.
I'm planning on buying one, hoping for two.

I noticed all those baby seats. That kind of seat sells well to people with young children. They are even quite popular on ebay.

I looked up the buses you're bidding on yesterday. That multiple bidding is how I ended up with three army deuce and a halves.

I've already got em SOLD when they get here. But its too early in the auction to get any kind of excited. They may go for a pretty penny.

You'd better save a couple of those baby seats for your own later use. It sounds like your life, relationship and family wise, is about to start getting more expensive.

Best made plans of mice and men. Things seem to happen unexpectedly in life.

No, your wife will rule your destiny. Two or three years into a marriage they take charge. Women have been known to change their minds occasionally, especially when they start getting concerned about their maternal clock.
