You probably don’t need us to tell you that good cars are expensive. If you want quality, you have to shell out the dough — and that’s especially true if you want a car with 300-horsepower. However, what if we told you that you could bag yourself a 300-horsepower car for less than $10,000? While it could seem impossible, you can really knock down the price of an epic car if you’re willing to accept that it has had previous owners and has a few thousand miles on the clock.

Kathy Mariscal and Christine Saldana have done a smart thing by purchasing a vintage school bus and turning it into their very first home. They have named the bus Adelita. The interiors are spacious, modern, and comfortable. Instead of spending a huge sum on rent every month, which was to the tune of $4,500, they decided to purchase Adelita for $7,500 and got to work on it. They got the electrical, plumbing, framing walls, etc. everything done.
The entire project took about six weeks and it cost them $50,000. The newlyweds relocated from Los Angeles and now dock at Houston, Texas. Here they pay a monthly payment of $800. They now lot-dock the bus and found an amazing RV resort. So, they do not feel any different from living in an apartment building. They are happy to have their own house on wheels that is tiny and cozy.
Do Kathy and Christine recommend this way of living? Yes, absolutely but Kathy iterates that pre-planning is very important. A lot of research was involved in making this plan happen. You need to know what your needs are and based on that you have to make decisions. Since both women had full-time jobs and could not travel all the time, they built their floor plans based on those needs. Another thing that they relied on was positive thinking and manifestation. Each time they came across an obstacle, they dealt with it head-on.
Enjoying the Ride
The two went on a road trip for seven days before they settled in Texas. They went to New Mexico and Arizona. Since they had such a blast doing that, they plan on taking some time off in the future and visiting a few national parks. As for the bus, they plan on living in it until they buy their own house. Even after that, they will never give Adelita away as the couple considers it to be their first and their last home.
