Yeah.. One of them was a really clean 4104 with a funky smell, presumably coming from the tanks... I told the seller to dump 'em and put some freshener in there before I brought the wife down to look at it.  He did and it still stunk.  We didn't buy that one.

I know he made it to Phoenix. He was posting major cities he was passing through on FB. When he got to Phoenix he posted a pic of a bus's steeringwheel.
