Right when I think these buses can go no higher, they command even more $! I wish I'd gotten my 23 windown micro with a sunroof back in the early 80's when I wanted one so badly and they were more common and realistically priced. I'll probably never have one now. Should I mortgage the farm to get a fixer upper and invest like real estate, assuming I'll get $500K in sweat equity later? lol!

Check out the prices on this site. Drooling over the pics.........

It's sad as I would love to have one. I just don't see how it will ever be possible.....

Short of winning the lottery or grabbing up one of those crazy "Barn-find" stories you hear about where the owner has no idea what it's worth.

I wonder if there even is any "barn-finds" left. If I had the money all I would do is go barn huntin, so I just imagine how many people have been doing it this whole time.

You just have to keep your eyes open and save up your karma points.
