Anyone near Athens, GA...?

anyone close enough to Athens Georgia that they would be willing to take a gander at a bus for us? It is closest enough to us that wed be willing to fly out and drive it back, but it would be great if someone near could take a peek. Or recommend a mechanic in the area.

Be careful with GA buses. We've had at least a FEW on here that have had nightmares buying buses from GA schools.

Thanks for the heads up! This is actually a finished conversion that was purchased by the current owner from a couple in New Hampshire. Who knows where the bus itself came from!

While mine wasn't a nightmare, i should have checked the hydro oil tank before i hit the road. That's on me. Seeing a bus first hand def has it's benefits and at the very least speaking to a shop foreman\mechanic that actually took care of the bus would be a must. I am not very far from Athens where is the bus actually at?
