but look at this one:
Public Surplus: Auction #1763487

Im actually flying to texas during that time.
I'm already bidding on that one in TX!
Its too new to be affordable, I'd imagine. It'll likely go for around ten or twelve.

I also went ahead and bid on that one in TN too!
I'm actually up front on that one so far!

ECCB......Hey Sunshine. If you're in the Houston area, let me know. Was hoping to get together with some other local skooliers, but haven't heard when, or if, they are going to ever get together. A beer, or other refreshing beverage, always tastes better with good conversation. I'm not too terribly far from Deer Park, if you get that 16 passenger bus.
Good Luck

You're welcome to come to our roof raise and chili cookout here in FL in Feb, if you feel like it.

I thought the one in Alton, IL. looked like a pretty good bargain. Surface rust don't hurt nuttin.
But then I see a lot of flex exhaust piping which is a red flag for maintenance short cuts they may have done elsewhere.

Its still pretty cheap last I checked.
I thought about throwing my low bid into it, but I just wouldn't wanna drive to or from IL this time of year.

I've bid as much as I can on the 09 in TX. I'm sure it goes much higher.

dont make the same mistake I did ands assume that your Texas bus is ready for winter if you travel north.. LOL...

I took my Nice fancy Texas bus into the 0 f degree ohio weather and its air system wasnt happy at all... water got in everything and froze in various places...

I ASS-U-ME-d that all busses were built for any type of weather.. OOPS!!.

alas I had made sure my coolant, fuel, and oil were ready for winter but not the air system.. nevertheless when im done with it, the bus will go anywhere..

but its work making sure that if you plan to travel all over the country that your southern-bought bus can handle it..

ECCB'S Big bus came from KY so its ready but oricha if you are buying south and trasvelling north its something to keep in mind..
