nice, how much did you get it for?
$600, guy put a new gas tank & fuel pump & it would start for 30 seconds & die, then start & die again. He gave up! Needs windshield channel rust fixed, new tires, and maybe I’ll have to throw in the 82 g20 engine....... we will see..
Waiting to hear back on the insurance, fingers crossed on that. Since it’s still a school bus, but with the seats taken out yesterday, they may insure it as a transfer to rv.

GMAC has been known to insure school bus conversions. for the bus i had, i ended up going through a company called poliseek, which was just a reseller for GMAC. if GMAC denies you directly, try poliseek, or just keep calling until you get a rep at GMAC that will say yes.

Oh yeah, I’ve bitten off a lot, & am going at it, slowly. Did go to the junkyard today & got a spare rim with bald tire, so when I go over to Maryland, I’ll have the spare to replace the two flats on the rear passenger side! Bring the flats back to Richmond & get used tires, if needed.
Waiting on the insurance agent to tell me if I can insure it like it is..........

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
