Wow, what a hustler. If there's rust on the outside, plan on it being much worse on the floor.

I'm probably not going to get one of these busses. My deposit is refundable and I'm really convinced there are much better busses available. I found flat nose front engine international and several dog nose busses at a bus company in Connecticut that are in great shape. I've been in negotiations with the manager since yesterday. Planning to take another 3 hour ride and see what he's got available. After seeing the busses in person in Maryland compared to how they look in the photos I'm going to have to go see the bus I buy and really go over it extensively. I'm hopeful Connecticut will be the ticket. 3 hours is about as far as I can run one way in a day off. I left at 11am for the Maryland trip, spent two hours there and got back at 9pm.

I hope you find one in good shape. I grew up in Ct. and know how much salt they use on the roads and the winters are long and brutal. I wouldn't expect to find one that doesn't have issues. But the only way to know is to go look. I'll be up there next weekend.

I'll post something before I go up. Possibly next weekend. I have to work Friday so Sunday would be the only day I can go.
