Miss seeing bus names in posts

One feature I miss seeing is the names users give their buses, in the profile block accompanying posts. Example below (former position of bus name highlited):

Some folks have some pretty catchy names out there and it's fun to see 'em at a glance.

Mine is named 'DEV RANDOM'..

for any Unix Geek writing code you call up a file "/dev/random" to get a random number for your computer program...

otherwise the name means the RANDOM travels of a DEVeloper..

alas my random travels... I write some of my best code on the road... the bus has a software and hardware dev lab for my cloud telecom solutions on board at any given time..

I didnt see a place to put a bus name in my profile though..

Mine is Heavy Fuel, both a pun and named after a Dire Straits song, two for one!

Mines just called Nowhere Fast.
One because we go 65 mph. And two, a really cool bus from an indie surfing movie was called that. You could only tell what it was called if you paused the movie on the bus scene.
