4x4 e-350 short bus

No affiliation, but the price seems low enough.

Keep in mind that most states prohibit school-bus-yellow on anything that is not being used as a school bus. It's not likely that your local Maaco would paint this thing for $199.95.

Nice rig. If it had a V10, I'd have to wonder if Carringb would be interested.

As for the school bus yellow restriction, I've never heard that before and I've seen my share of former buses still yellow but with the red lights and "school bus" lettering removed. Doesn't imply they were following the law, just an observation.

If it fit into my driveway, or onto a trail, I'd be staring at it.

You can probably get away with it in many circumstances, but there are a couple of towns in CA that are known to write tickets for it, at least if you look like you might socialize with a less than clean cut crowd.
