With the wife's blessing, I texted the seller this morning and told him we had a deal. On Saturday I'll be taking a five hour bus ride to a town near him, and he'll be picking me up to go take possession of my new bus. Yay! Then I get to learn how to drive it on the way home (gulp).
- 2002 Thomas/Freightliner 12 window conventional
- Cummins 24v 5.9L (with new injector pump and low lift pump pressure alarm)
- Allison 2000 with overdrive
- Good tires
- Air Ride rear suspension
- Full maintenance records
- Seller is a bus mechanic (and a nice guy)
I'm a little concerned. My plan is to turn it into a moving van with a tiny RV section at the back, and sell it when we get to where we're going. But I hear these things can be addictive...
