« on: June 03, 2006, 10:11:06 AM »
Newbies/wannabees should research this company before contemplating a bus purchace from them-

The BNO archives under "walker" in the search category has much info
Far better is it to dare mighty things,to win glorious triumphs,even though they may be checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much,because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.  Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)

Shoot, Chuck, I think you are being just a bit too pollitically correct on this one. I think instead of pussyfooting around the issue, you should just say something like, "Sam Walker, the guy behind this ebay auction, was just convicted of several counts of fraud in the state of Pennsylvania, for taking money from customers for buses and work that he never delivered."

If that's inaccurate, let me know and I'll edit it.

Gumpy, I personally think you were too easy on him.

Check out the questions and answers at the bottom of the auction page. Very interesting. Quite optimistic. Their debt ratio is pretty low. Must be a company in good standing :)

I just sent EBAY a note so let's see how long it takes them to pull the listing.

 The pictured coach looks to be a New Jersey Transit that was resold to Coach USA , then resold to ? .  Seller states that bus has mint 0 miles engine and like new trans - engine rebuilds and trans in great condition must be a lot cheaper for the seller than I am used to paying ! If valid documentation is presented - maybe .
