I think the main reason why it didn't attract much attention was bc of the body rust and the fact that it was a shorter 72 passenger body with no understorage.

The rumor that Willie Nelson slept here might help.

What's with the "bad floor" in a bunch of the bus descriptions? I didn't think TX buses would have rust issues?

in general they dont but if a bus has been banged or dented its going to surface rust there first.. I also have noticed that onlinepros is pretty through and has a fairly high standard to hit so a rating of fair might be what some would call a Great bus here.. you can ask for more pics too or ask for clarity they will answer questions you have about the busses..

plus every district is different.. northern texas does use some salt in winter.. some districts beat on busses.. each bus is different..

I dont know each district and what or how they treat busses.. plus the bus itself matters too.. some coach builders esp on cutaways had better quality than others.. poor wuality builds esp on cutaway vans equals lots of trapped moisture and possibnility of rust.. certain parts of texas do get a lot of rain

We "dew" have this thing called humidity. It's not reserved for just the coastal areas. We call it "weather you can wear"

Oricha.. I may be in the Dallas area the last weekend of the month. If you're still in the area, looking, let me know. I'm always into looking.
