Why does everyone tell me how much my bus is worth ?

Don't disrupt threads on the main boards - get it all out of your system here. Think of it as 'playtime'.

It will fall straight out unless you tighten the only 4 bolts needed to hold it in...

Don't forget that it's a barndoor, because it has two side doors!

Suitable responses can go along the lines of:

Really, I had no idea, I've noticed it's starting to rust and doesn't go like my Nissan so I was going to scrap it

No I don't, why, do you want to buy it?

I did put it into we buy any car dot com, and I'm going over there later to pick up my £40, but only if they don't see the scratches

I'm looking to swap it for something that doesn't get as much attention

Yes but it's so expensive to run

They also tell you what year it is, and they had one when their prostate was tiny and could see their Johnson.

Ah, so it's now turned to ageism has it, I'll take the usual route and complain on Twitter and say I've been insulted, hurt, had my feelings felt....not..

Hahaha I thought this was a uniquely South African thing! (Since almost all our buses have been exported.) I hear this ALL the time!

Well my #####y old van is an appreciating asset......... :-)

But I really must put blue 9 suspension on it. It'll the be worth rather more than the initial valuation.

Stock vans....... Oh dear :)
