Well i bought a bus today!

I just put a deposit on a 1999 Freightliner M Line bus. 30' long. 5.9 cummins 24 valve with Auto transmission. Runs and drives great! I will be picking it up on Tuesday. Can't wait to convert it! I will report back soon. Thanks to everyone for all the great advice.

Thanks for the nice welcomes. I bet your other half has not lost the accent? Also, none of us Brits miss the UK weather. We pick our bus up tomorrow afternoon so fingers crossed we have no problems getting it home.

Upload to either photobucket or Imgur (free accounts available for either), then copy and paste the URL they give you in the text box here. My Imgur account is being used as the example below, and IIRC Photobucket is the same
