How did you guys bide time waiting for auction to happen or durring. I generally have a hard time during bidding. Hoping the price is right and no one wants the maxxforce money pit in it☺ So whats you guys stories leading up to the auction.

Bus crack

Hahahaha Iíve been looking for a bus for about two months now Iíve driven as far as 3 states away to try and find the one my head is about to explode. I donít understand the whole auction thing Iíve tried looking them up near me ( Raleigh NC) and all I can find are the auctions of salvaged cars..... Iíve been checking craigslist 3-4 times a day like an addict I almost never use my phone now Iím hooked and searching like a dope fiend. Hahahahaha

Kansas buses won't have much, if any, rust. Especially from Western Kansas.
