RIP Busker

After paying to switching the title, and the tow truck I salvaged $207 out of her. Thanks for the help from the forum, good luck to everyone’s endeavors.

-Cheers

Water damage from the flooding.

Husker,. Sorry to hear that had to go that route. It can be heartbreaking to invest so much of yourself into a project only to see it depart behind a tow truck.

I hope that your enthusiasm for skoolie's has not diminished and we see a new build thread starting soon.

Take care.

Thanks for the assist PNW. At this point I have no plans to replace Busker. My wife and I are turning our misfortune of being flooded into our first home purchase! So we will be wrapped up in home projects for the foreseeable future. The door is not shut however, my new property is half an acre WITH rear property road access, so a bus would still be a possibility!!

Sad to see your bus project end like that. Good luck with the house and I won't be surprised to see a new bus project in your future!

Nice size lot. Plenty of room for future bus parking

That really is a cute house! I am glad you had the opportunity open up for you, even if it was at the expense of Busker!

That's a cute little house, good luck!

When the time comes, you can always argue it's not a new bus, but a guest house ;)
