|Looking for school bus||Chris||1-23-03|
|Looking for a good school bus for camper. Prefer automatic, but would consider manual. Should have a big diesel (turbo) air brakes, etc. I am in the western Colorado area. Want to take it to Alaska this summer.|
Any advice on type of bus would be great.
|Lots of good buses and bus parts||pat young||11-5-05|
|I have diesel school buses, Crowns and Gilligs with almost all engine types, mid engine and rear engine.|
I also have Allison automatics (5 speeds) and fire truck parts, and LOTS of bus parts.
You can come and look at anything I have, put 30-40 miles on it if you wish, watch the water temperature, oil pressure, air pressure, etc. and then you won't hurt my feelings if you keep looking around for other buses.
I don't sell any bad or broken/patched up stuff. Those kind of buses get parted out, or I use them for storage.

|Don't miss the large number of buses on E-Bay! I just checked and there are many. Go to ebay.com then click the link for ebay motors and the sublink buses and motorcoaches. Careful! There are a lot - enough to get you drooling on your keyboard|
