CL Bus (kinda funny?)

I saw this ad for a very cool double decker bus for sale.
I know the bus, as its been in the Orlando area since I was a little kid.

Since I read through thousands of used vehicle listings on a regular basis, I've gotten used to all the usual stories people tell when trying to sell stuff.

The ad says the bus has a top speed of 45 mph. He then says if it doesn't sell soon he's driving the bus to Cali... I hope everyone calls his bluff!

He says he made a quick and easy 10 grand using it as a concession vehicle, which I also kinda dooubt...

It sat for years and years at a used car lot, I know that much. It would make a cool home for someone short... But for the price, I can think of lots of better alternatives.

I wanna see the guy drive 45mph in a double decker from Orlando to Cali... that would make for an epic journey.

they use a double decker in Fort Smith as a tourist attraction, it not open to public and those are mannequins in the windows.
it's pretty cool, the driver's cab is 1/2 width of the bus.
They also use an old train car as a restaurant, it's at right angle of bus
