Vikings party bus for sale on Minneapolis Craigslist (No, it's not Paul Allen's) [PHOTOS]
Good for parties, bad for dates (at least with non-football fans).
How much would you pay to own a Vikings party bus?
Some of you might be thinking, 'you'd have to pay me to take that thing off your hands,' but one Stillwater resident is asking for $6,000 for a purple-and-gold shortbus adorned with the Vikings logo and affixed with the signatures of a number of Minnesota football legends, including Zygi Wilf, Bud Grant, "and many other former Vikings players."
In a surprising twist, it doesn't appear that the seller is Paul Allen, the KFAN radio host and Vikings announcer who enjoys Purple Kool-Aid and is the unquestioned driver of the increasingly popular Vikings bandwagon.
Here's the Craigslist post, followed by some pics:
1989 E350 Shortbus - Custom painted by Maaco.
$6,100 or best offer. Will consider reasonable offers.
Great vehicle for tailgating, bar-hopping, parties, etc. Great refuge for tailgating on the cold winter mornings both now and when the new stadium is here!
7.3 Liter Diesel Gening. High Miles (not sure exactly how man due to 5 digit odometer), but runs great! Engine block heater works great with no issues on starts on even the coldest of mornings. Transmission, Water Pump, Steering and New Tires this past summer. All legal lights are functional.
Interior seats 7 with bucket seats. Purple all-purpose carpeting. Cabinet with counter in back. Interior lights and heater work great. 25+ autographs on interior of bus including Zygi Wilf, Bud Grant and many other HOF and former Vikings players (signatures are worth the price alone!).
Selling due to disability and no longer able to enjoy it, hope others can!
Feel free to contact me with any interest, questions or more information. Taylor (612) 554-9764 or respond to this post.
If you do end up buying it, please let us know. We'd love to tailgate with you outside the Purple Pridemobile. We'll even bring chips and salsa.
