Would You Drive This Bus Around Bismarck?
The Wheels On The Bus Go Round & Round
While the wheels on the bus do go round, and I'm sure the vehicle is (mostly) operational... would you really want to drive this thing?
Maybe you would! Maybe it's nostalgic, and brings you fond memories of childhood. -- Not me; I had braces and glasses and was not with the "In" crowd. To put it into perspective, the "Cool" kids always sit in the back, right? You would find me at the furthest seat in the front. I digress...
At Least It's Not Yellow
They painted this 1970's Chevrolet bus white-ish tan, and even turned the interior into a camper. It comes with a sink, bathroom, kitchen table, and even has some closets and cupboard space. If that doesn't sell it for you, the owner has offered to throw in $250 worth of new cushions. The owner also notes that the previous owner smoked, so do with that what you will. It also needs brakes.
Things To Consider:
While you might look at this and think, "Wow, $2500 isn't bad for a camper," let's not forget you're driving a bus. You'll make quite a bit of noise driving this thing around town, so if you don't like to be the center of attention, I wouldn't recommend making this investment. Also, there's not a lot of privacy on this thing. As you know, buses are full of windows. Yikes. And I won't even get into the gas prices issue. We know.
Bumps & Bruises
As I recall, school buses are notoriously bumpy. It was even a game for kids to get bounced out of their seats. It wasn't a proper trip to school without us trying to concuss ourselves on the ceiling.
Imagine eating your bowl of cereal in the morning... it's early, you haven't even had your coffee yet, you're not quite awake and/or ready to face the world, you hit a bump, and BOOM. -- You're wearing your lactose-free milk and Fruit Loops. It's a no for me.
Is this the same bus that was once painted matte-black and would park in the South Walmart parking lot? Do you know what I'm talking about? The creepy black bus?
The bus is being sold on the BisMan Online Garage Sale Facebook page to anyone who's interested.
