Buying a Bus in the Pittsburgh Area

I'm looking to purchase a mid-to-full-size bus within a decent distance of Pittsburgh.
Diesel is an absolute must; I plan to convert to veg fuel before I hit the road. I'm looking to spend around $4000.

I'd be very wary of rust in that area. Look for a non local bus.

The Pittsburgh area is home to 422Sales. Bring your budget and you should be able to get a very, very nice bus. It will cost $100 for a bidders number then the premium after you buy a bus is 6%. The buses there sell pretty cheap. Look at the bus market reports on there website to see what some buses sold for at previous auctions.
Heres there website:422 Sales Home Page

Craigslist, Ebay, and government auctions like GovDeals are all decent ways to buy a bus
