Greetings all! Long story short, I was in an accident of no fault of my own and insurance totaled my car that needs less than $400 in parts so I'm fixing it and should have an extra $3000-$4000 to play with. I was pretty indecisive as to what project I should attempt (I'm always trying to build or fix something) and when I came across the idea of the skoolie I just knew immediately it was for me. I love the idea of being totally off the grid and making a bus into a home.....eventually. My plan is to start off with something that would be fine for casual camping/music festivals and build up to something I can live in permanently. I found this recent posting on CL 1996 Lnternational Blue Bird CUMMINS 5.9L DIESEL Will Trade
and was wondering what you guys thought? Obviously make sure tires are good and see what kind of service records are available. I'm more concerned with the powertrain. I've read the 5.9's have headgasket problems. Any input? Low cruising speeds don't really bother me too much. Also it has hydraulic brakes, not air. Anyways, happy to be a part of the website and it seems like there's a wealth of info here. Sorry for the extra long 1st post.
