Water Damaged Vehicle For Sale on eBay!

Ummm, believe it or not, this is no joke!

From eBay's listing:

Exclusive Limited Offer!!! Own A Piece of History!!!

Historic 1993 International Blue Bird Orleans Parish Schools Bus #93-97

This New Orleans Public School Bus is a 1993 International Blue Bird with 147,797 miles. The bus was substantially submerged for at least 10 days following Hurricane Katrina, and would require extensive repair to return to full working condition. Please see the photos below. Only 147,797 Original Owner Miles. Buyer is responsible for shipping/delivery. This bus is sold "as is". No warranty or guaranty is expressed or implied. Clear title will be provided. Because the Orleans Parish School District is a public entity, your purchase price less salvage value of the bus may qualify as a charitable contribution! Check with your tax advisor.

This is a collector's dream come true.

We will provide a certificate of authenticity attesting that this bus was at the Orleans Parish Schools Almonaster Bus Barn and was flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina!

Other buses may be available in future auctions.
Breitbart article here, eBay listing here.

Who wouldn't be thrilled to own such a large and glorious monument to human stupidity? But, if you want it to be yours you had better be prepared to open up your wallet. The current bid of $5,300.00 still does not meet reserve.

Hat tip to Right Nation.
