I think it's spelled Farrari on the other side of the pond.

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

Very Shagadelic!
My wife is from East Sussex.
We think it's very cool to see a yankee bus in the UK and all the cool things you do with it.
I really like the interior. Especially the bed area.
Seems to be a lot of very interesting folks into school buses.

You need a nice Union Jack painted down the entire roof.

I'll bet the MOT and insurance is tricky and expensive?

LOL. Just a little teasing. No harm meant.

Hi there. Glad you like our bus. We keep trying to make improvements and are just refitting the bedroom area so will post pictures when we have them.

In the UK we are registered as a motorhome (RV) so the MOT and tax is quite simple. Insurance was more of an issue.

I like the union jack idea but we need to keep it as original as possible as that helps with getting it to earn a living! See our site www.yellowbusevents.co.uk

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

I have seen double deckers in New York but I have to say it cost us a small fortune to ship ours over so with the height issue of a double decker I think you would have to win the lottery!

The next big project for us is fitting the toilet and shower system... going with marine technology but as always nothing is simple.
