We can have a breeders vs non-breeders thread if you'd like. I'm 37, never even had a pregnancy scare with any girl in my life.
Some of us have enough self control to abstain from reproducing like rabbits.

I mean if you REALLY wanna hear what I think, we can go there. I'm REALLY holding back to not offend you folks with children. lets just leave it be and talk about buses.

I love kids, I just can't eat a whole one by myself.

You've got to devour them while they're young and tender. Crockpot material.

Sorry Rhonda. Can we talk about your favorite bus choice? I know it's still multiple choice at this point.

This isn't your bus, but I'm finding it amazing that fleabay is pretty much full of F-450s, and the prices are outrageous. No wonder people feel the dealer prices aren't that bad.

Back to Buses

At this point I am feeling good about the Tennessee buses. It seems most people prefer the diesel engines, but for my first bus and a weekender at that, i'm thinking the low milage and likely reliability of the engine make it a good option.

I haven't found any other buses on Craigslist worth seeing, but continue to look for a possible hidden gem pop up.

I'd say if the prices stay reasonable, these TN mini's will be great.
I know I want one! So does my boss.
We took his kids and their neighborhood friends for a ride in McShortface. They were super excited. Apparently they all go to a church/private school and don't get to ride on school buses. I think my boss' kids may have actually had their first ever actual school bus ride!
It was really cool, I couldn't help but SMILE!

Question Buses

Alright everyone,

I have found a couple of buses a little more local to me(at least West Coast). Let me know any thoughts, concerns, likes, goods/bads.

Thanks

I have sent out emails asking about maintenance records, rust, etc. Waiting to hear back.

Thanks
