How did I miss this giveaway? SOLD!
« on: January 18, 2011, 08:41:05 PM »
WHERE WAS I???!!!  Just 1 state away and I somehow missed it!  He sold it last night ARGH!!!  Doesn't seem like you could you possibly go wrong with this?  I guess that's one way to sell a bus fast, give it away.

In case the ad is removed, this is what it reads...

This bus was driven to this location and parked a couple years ago. due to fuel prices. It can be redone inside, or used for parts, but it was running when parked. Has automatic transmission that had just been installed and worked. Please call me at 540-226-1677 if interested. trade or make offer.

Story of my life, a day late and a dollar short.  But then again, "if I were to come home with another one (bus) it could be the end of my perfect marriage to the most wonderful woman in the world."  (I was told it was okay to say that)  It seems it would be worth that price just for the parts.

Sold is not always sold - keep in touch with the owner until it's paid for and gone

I guess I need to keep up with all the groups.  I'm a member there too, but my wife is already upset with me over how much time I spend poking around on here.  LOL

Is that ever true. My bus was sold with a deposit down, but the buyer couldn't get the loan/cash. I was on the "If it doesn't work out" list. I was very shocked when I called a week later and found out what happened. The first buyer lost his deposit of $1k.

Well I told him to keep my ph. # and to call me if it fell through... and that I had the cash in my hand.  Also emailed him to the same effect.  Like you say, You never know.  I used to own a car dealership and if anybody knows how often deals fall apart, it's me.

Jump -

Try and get the VIN off that 4106 from the seller, and I'll tell you who bought it new from GMC.

Also, look closely at that interior photo.  The seats in front are stock revenue service pairs.  Check the ceiling - those are the original panels, which means the coach has the basic factory insulation in the roof.  Ok until the temp goes over 75 degrees.

Otherwise, somebody may have gotten a great deal.

HYS -

Agree - love the look of a stock 4106! 

FWIW & HTH. . .
