I don't know why I even get involved in administrators' decisions. The best bid they got for salvage was around $1850.00 for each bus. (Pretty darn stout I thought. That would have to be around $11.50 to $12.00 per hundred.) The school is wanting $2500.00 each. My suggestion to them was to pull the engines and trannies and sell them separate. Then, sell the bodies for scrap. The best I can find out, the engine and trans should weigh around 1,800 lbs. Their question to me was what will the engines and trannies bring? I don't have a clue about this market, but $1,000.00 per engine/trans combo with the scrap price of the bodies would put them right at $2,500.00 each. I have more questions than answers and will probably wish in the long run that I had never asked the first question! LOL! They did tell me that the mileage info they first gave me was incorrect. The one that shows 75,XXX on the miles had a cluster replacement at 72,XXX miles, so it is around 147,XXX miles. The other one is around 160,XXX miles. I started the one that shows 75,XXX on the miles today. It hasn't been moved since September, but it busted off like it was running this morning. The other one had really weak batteries.
