All of you are so gracious about sharing information. I'm following you to, Robin...I don't want to lose you!

Right now I think many of us are following you to try to get you a good bus. It helps to have lots of eyes working for you.

The thing is many of us see good buses that would make good projects, so it's good to bring those to your attention if they fit your criteria. We actually try to help anyone that comes here before they buy a bus. Most people make their purchase and then come here for help. We try to help people with bad bus purchases too, but there's only so much that can be done with a bad bus.

That's not meant to make you feel any less special.

This one is 5 years newer than mine, which also means it's a computerized engine. I don't know your preferences regarding mechanical engines versus computerized engines.
I saw it. Looks pretty nice.

Then I am blessed to have you angels. I sincerely appreciate you all. Thank you so much.

Thank you, Jordan76. Is it my imagination, or do they look wide?

They are the same width as a standard school bus.

That's ok. I've driven both styles of buses in my time. That's how I know.
