Honestly that looks pretty solid. No computers to deal with. You probably didn't want that gas engine anyway. There may be some electrical issues. Take it to the car wash and have it detailed.

Well that's a fine example to pick to represent the bus that's supposed to be moved. You're right, i didn't read the add.

Do I hear any votes for he should pay someone to remove it?

I'd bet good money on the thought that the bus in question is not like the nice shiny shorty in the photo. It just wouldn't be that difficult to get a pic of the real thing. I'm thinking it's lying on its side half full of mud, but yeah I'd appreciate a picture too.

No takers. Just curiosity.

After reading the advertisement, I feel for the guy trying to help out family after having a medical situation... but he's in Florida, the bus is in Texas, he didn't post an actual picture of the bus, contact is Text only, and he wants picture of your Drivers license?

Hell nah my guy... too convoluted for anyone with any common sense to want to deal with.

Wow, Vidor TX

Last time i went through there got stopped on I10 in a 62 chevy superduty, it had 5.38 gears,eaton rearend a small block 4spd and everything from my barracks room in the back.
This was circa 1992 and my Tags (VA) where 3 years dead...its an army thing

Sheriff said follow me to the court house, 1st exit off interstate had a giant bill board up, it said "KKK rules this town, no _______ allowed" and they didnt leave letters out.

I guess the white, black and grey camouflage with battle flag on front gave me safe passage

Interesting trip

Vidor is shameful to all the Texans I know. But then, I don't know anyone who lives there. Bunch of inbred, trailer trash crackers. That said, I saw the same sign (40 foot billboard) complete with rebel flag coming into some little town in Mississippi on my way back from Tennessee just a couple of years ago. Needed gas but decided to try and make the next town. Figured my "Hippie" pony tail would not go unnoticed there.

Hey, that sounds like my town. These guys are so backward that I'm an outsider because I spent my life away from here in the military. I'm glad I got out of here. These guys have so little to hang onto in their lives, and yes they're highly racist.

Property for sale in a racist backwater town! Anyone interested?
