Re: my new ambulance/ 66 passenger bus

Re: Wanderlodge in KY, $5500!

It looks like a city bus conversion to me. I wonder if it is spinning that high at 55mph. That would REALLY get old.

Re: 1994 International Genesis - $3500

I assume at least that the 100% positive feedback is soon to change? Did you at least get compensated for the drive out?

Re: Looking for a crown bus

I saw your hours on your website and instantly saw a side business...and a person with no life :D

Re: Looking for a crown bus

I see the marketing side of getting a bus that stands out in the crowd. I'd say go get it. It is instantly visible during the season, then it becomes a rolling billboard when you go tailgating in the...

Re: Day-by-Day hitting the road...

Re: Workin' on a big black International

$900 bucks? Wow... good deal.
My first one was a 1991 Black International with the DT 360. Lots of good times were had in that old monster.
