Damn dude, what year was your Prius? 4K is a good haul. Do you have a bus lined up? Freightliner, Blue Bird...? Short or Long?

yeah the prius retains a high blue book value mostly due to it's longevity and high mpg...

on the bus thing, im going to start documenting my process soon, but short version is im looking for a short to mid size bus, probably with a dog nose (not a van nose) that has a good diesel engine. i have about 4k saved, so im waiting until i get up to around 6k to pull the trigger. looking at ebay, gov auctions, craigslist, etc...

Nice. I both speak for, and against gov auctions. Usually gov vehicles are taken care of very well, depending on the agency. The Department of Education has safety requirements and required scheduled maintenance that would make me think those busses are in good shape, however they will try to get as much as they can for the vehicle.

yeah, for some reason i dont trust the gov auctions as much as the major bus sellers on ebay, but that's just me, i don't have a logical reason for it, also i see more of the buses im interested in on ebay...
