Yeah, I held out as best as I could on both, but "littlebetty" is getting them both. $6100 for 1 and $6300 for the other

I wonder if the high bidder "littlebetty" is the betty from BGA.

Could be, they have a very similar bus on their lot for 16k that isn't moving. My guess is its Sarah from Canyon State.

If your going for Bus 205,

Let me know, I will hold off, I dont want to bid against you. Hopefully you have better luck with "littlebetty" than I did. I did make her pay a bit more at the end out of spite so I feel better about that.

Yeah I already have a good bus so would not be bidding over $4,500. I paid $2,900 for mine.

Ok, well then I am going to give that one a shot too. I doubt the outcome will be any different, but you cant win if you dont play.

If I knew 100% I'd be able to get one home I'd bid for sport.
One of them went for $6500. I can't log in so I can't see the results of other auctions. What did the other one go for.
A bunch of CNG buses in Ca., starting bid is $5k.

The other International? $6100 looks like the final total.

This one caught my eye when it first appeared. It mysteriously vanished and left me scratching my head. A couple days later it showed up with some bumps and bruises.
For visibility.

Surprisingly that one did not spike at all at the end, went for $4050
Notice pics with good storage doors and then the pic with one damaged and one missing. I damaged mine pulling into the second gas station I stopped at when I bought mine.

Nice rare 24v Cummins shorty. Looks rusty though.

Not a skoolie but still cool idea for a conversion. Can't tell what engine it has, maybe one of the old Brazil motors?
