DUI Checkpoint !
 
I just bought a retired NC Highway Patrol breathalyzer bus.
Soooo, again, it would be really cool to meet up with local people to collaborate with.

Question: the huge floodlights are still on the roof and I'm hoping to sell them to recoup some of my money. Thoughts on anyone that would want a random item like that??

Got pix???

dfeazelle 12-19-2017 02:43 PM

I have pics of the bus in general but no close-ups of the light thing.
It's an '03 Thomas and has a TON of stuff already on it! Auto leveling jacks, Kabuto 21k diesel generator, power driver seat, electric mirrors, inverter...

Sounds like a pretty sweet find!

Robin97396 12-19-2017 03:25 PM

Do you mind if I ask how much you paid for that bus? It's something everyone wanted to know for comparative purposes anyway, but were to polite to ask.

Good score. Where did they hide a 21k generator in a bus?

dfeazelle 12-19-2017 03:51 PM

I'm guessing I don't have enough posts to post pics from my phone??

Sweet! Thanks!!

dfeazelle 12-19-2017 03:58 PM

Nope, not yet. LOL

dfeazelle 12-19-2017 04:00 PM

10 posts maybe?

Hey, I think I might have helped fund that bus or at least seen it inside and out?
A long time ago but I know I gave NC some money either way.
Cool find especially with the leveling jacks.
What area are you in?

Defjr333 12-19-2017 04:03 PM

I wouldn't be surprised if they were similar to the floodlights often found on fire trucks.

dfeazelle 12-19-2017 04:25 PM

They are telescoping... there's a corded controller. I wish I had gotten some pics today.

Are they pneumatic? We had some air-powered lighting masts from a fire truck that we used as a flagpole for our Military trucks.

Sounds like you got a helluva bus. 20Kw- you can do some welding.

Who says crime doesn't pay- DUI's must be very lucrative.

dfeazelle 12-19-2017 04:38 PM

They are VERY lucrative! I got one in the early 80's and it was expensive then! They replaced this bus with a million $ one.

Jolly Roger bus 223 12-19-2017 04:45 PM

Crime does pay every nickel and dime they ever thought they had to the county that gave them a place to stay at that time?
And around here even if you are cleared and not found guilty even for a speeding ticket you still owe the court cost of 210$ this year?
I probably helped fund that bus? Before they bought it but.
DFeazle if you will let me know what you want to get rid of I might be able to help.
You got a lot of things on your build that I am working on adding? So you started off real good.
Now all the fun mess begins.

Don't want to pay for that bus.:nonono:
