     And want a lesson in how to NOT sell a bus.  (Note only two small interior photos - those dark and poorly focused.)

This one is very close to me although I haven't seen it in person.  It is kind of like the phrase on the side "I did it my way"-----which if you would ask me is WAY, WAY OUT THERE!!!!

But --to each his own. 

Maybe a Mary Kay saleswomanperson could strip off the graphics and be left with a nice--but veeeery PINK bus.

I am going to have to re-think my pink and purple stripes for the 4905??!!

Steve - Now that it's darker out, look again - I can see the glow from my house, and I think you're about an hour closer to Enola than I am.  Brad

Brad,

Morbid curiosity tempts me to drive there from work, which would only be about 25 minutes.  But then I might be tempted to make some ridiculous offer, which he would then accept, then the wife would actually like it, and make me sell mine!

----SO I don't think I will go!   ;D :D

You guys are all being very rude about this guy's bus - I quite like it myself. And spare a thought for the poor soul who had to stick the vinyl down over all those rivets - he must have had nightmares for weeks afterwards.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Well, I have to admit - a *lot* of work went into that, even if it's not my cup.  There's even tile work in the driver's area around the foot pedals.  One wonders if the next owner will keep that motif, I guess we'll see if they show up here!
