BGA buys a lot of these type buses. I'll bet it was them.
Someone will give em 6 or 7 grand for it, plus fees.

auctions are tough tough... because of dealers and those buying busses to send for export.. esp down south as many are bought for export..

what if you talk to the mechanic that went out for the people in florida.. he may know of other busses for sale.. also try going and writing or calling the transportation department at SMALLER school districts around the area.. often they will sell busses to private individuals ifthey know someone is looking... its easier for them to sell a bus to you than it is for them to go through the trouble of consigning it to an auction house..

EVERYONE looks at those auctions. . professionals and individuals too..

my first bus came frm a guy that had talked to all of the smaller counties and districts around the area and ended up with a bus..

there was no bidding and such.. you just talk to shops and such to find out who sells them..

maybe go about it that way instead of trying to buy from a dealer or an auction site.. also likely the same mechanic that went out for the group in florida might also know some people.. and also would look at busses for you as well if you shoot him a little finders fee..
