Welp there goes my bus....


had it for sale on CL
had a interested person
cleaned it up
filled the gas tank
took it for 1 last drive to make sure it all worked

got home, started to back it into the driveway.
it stalled.
it started to steam (white/light) looked like the radiator overheated
didnt smell like coolant, didnt have the same steamy feel
realized it was smoke
got out
neighbor is an emt, he called 911 and they were here within 90 seconds (firestation 6 blocks away)

bus is a total loss.

just called a scrap yard to tow it away... $300


guess im puttin a few guns up for sale......

hope everyones day is goin better than mine

Had a friend in college who sold her "child molester" full size van to a guy for $50, just to watch it burn to the axles in the parking lot 30 seconds after the new owner started it up. Guy said "keep the $50, it was worth it just to watch."

Stanch, hope your week gets better from here.
Want to improve your game? The best thing to buy is more paint and more field fees.

The problem with America is that we confuse our politics for religion, and our religions for science.

Check out my current sale and my feedback

A few years ago a close family friend lost her father in a car engine fire. The engine exploded, causing a heart attack, then the car went up. You are very lucky.

im thankful that nobody got hurt
im thankful that it happened at the end of the driveway, not near the brand new garage my dad's building
im glad it wasnt the tree next to it

it could have easily been way worse

i just wish that when you google junk car buyer the 1st 10 results would be different people, not the same guy with 10 different phone numbers/websites/names/etc
