me and my family (5 total) are hoping to buy a school bus and fix it up. I was thinking of a late 90's or early 00's diesel. We live in Alberta Canada and are really looking forward to building a family project and traveling in our own creation. I will be asking a lot of questions so i hope i don't get on your nerves, i know nothing of engines, transmissions or bodywork but i am a cabinet maker by trade so i may be able to answer a few questions in return for your insight. Looking forward to your help.
