I started watching it but I just Couldn't. That poor bus would have made a great conversion for someone.

Re: The Death of a Bus

Looks like a Gillig 636, CAT 3208 pusher. Same model as my 2 buses. I believe CA has a program where money is given to districts to replace buses with new, clean burning models. I think if they take the money, the bus replaced has to die. I've seen some ads stating the vehicle can't be registered in CA, so that may also be an option. Sad, especially for us fans of old classic iron.
