Yeah, Syracuse gets waaay more snow then we do, it's just that when we do get it it all comes down at once and I live in the foothills to a mountain range. I love it when my 2 wheel drive bus passes the 4wd pickup trying to lock his hubs in. My Buick front wheel drive does even better than both of those though. I know, I know this is a bus forum Cool

[ I let off just before I hit 85 on a long open stretch of highway.

Have you replaced those ratty ass tires prior to doing 85??? Great story.

I have a bus that is just as or more rusty than that one, same colors and everything. I still drive it regularly and am actually starting to do some body repair on it. I got a complete slider track/rocker from a junkyard in Arizona to weld in for starters. I drove it for 10 years and abused the heck out of it, now it's time to give back to it.

Yeah. Just looked at his ad for a completely rotted out junk splitty that's missing most of the interior. Didn't do anything to it for 20+ years, so he must be talkin' about his own.

Ok....just like every other asshole walking this planet, you're more than entitled to your opinion. Half assed and grammatical nightmare it is, but your opinion nonetheless. I dragged this Bus home in 2007...let's have a quick rundown of some of the places that "not worth getting for free" Bus has taken me, shall we?
