Thanks Timkar -
Just saw those photos and... wow! What a gorgeous machine! It's like Busnut104 crawled into my head and snapped photos of my dreams. That bus is what I fantasize mine someday(?) becoming. I cannot imagine
why somebody hasn't snapped it up.
Busnut 104, if you're out there, don't you dare
tear that bus apart (picture Nellie shaking her finger at you)
. But, seriously, please don't... not just to repower a damn old dump truck you hardly use anyway (from the sound of it).
From a logical standpoint, any decent bus has (all things being equal) the same salvage value. I'm talking factory components - drivetrain, body panels, etc. Sure, the value of add-ons varies from bus to bus but - bottom line - it's nickels on dollars. Even brand-spanking-new 'stuff' is used
stuff once it's torn out. Not to mention the hassle of ads, and the BS that goes with selling it piecemeal.
From a purely emotional standpoint: Don't give me (even more) sleepless nights! I can't bear the thought of your beautiful bus being sent to the scrapper! if I had it, I'd give you the $$ right now - if only to save that bus. Promise you'll do nothing along those lines, at least without talking?
Send me a PM?. Maybe we can come up with some ideas?
