  1. You’re talking u.s. $30k for a Bus, who will own the Bus, who will pay for maintenance, Gas, out of who’s pocket? Don’t get any wise ideas from ‘Mr. Hilarious’ he is a total failure in that.

  2. Take care of the vehicle. Treat it like gold and don’t use it for party crap. Thanks Taiwan for your cash gift.
