In a perfect world, the OP would come back and declare "sold" when it sells...

Giving them the benefit of a doubt and a bump to the front page, in the event the bus is somehow still for sale!

There is almost no chance this is still available, it was posted nearly a year ago. Y'all got my hopes up with this landing on the front page. *sigh*
