I'm filing that under the, "What were they thinking" catagory!

Wonder how tall it is from the ground?  (I asked that question to them, be interesting to know!

I told Dianne that I had a bus up she needed to see...before she came into the room she said, "Wonder if Kyle will buy it!" ;D

I got the answer back in about 10 minutes, it was; It runs down the road at 13' 6".


I noticed it has 9 bidders by 2 people....wonder if they want it bad enough to hit the reserve?

Tekebird seems to think my Dina is a white elephant.  At least I can still get a lot of the parts from MCI even if I have to wait two months sometimes.

I couldn't imagine trying to get parts for a Mercedes-Benz bus nearly 40 years old.  I would bet a lot of parts other than engine stuff would have to come from Europe if they are still available.

Please excuse my lack of knowledge, was that bus from the factory like that or did they add another bus to the top?

I wonder what kind of mileage that gets? If I buy that & convert it, I could be competition for Sean!  ;D ;D

thats factory construction (bus).

likely designed by someone who eventually worked for neoplan.......and I always thought neoplan was "cutting edge" with thier design concepts.......seems they plagerized a bit
