That is one of the coolest buses that I have seen.

Have you seen their website? The conversion pics are awesome.

Quite a bit it seems, it travels the country with the Dead and Company shows. There's actually 2 of these buses and this one has over 500k on it and has gone through 3 engines and 3 trannys.

It's a shame all the cool bus designers died. These vintage buses are freakin awesome.

I love scrolling through Pinterest:

The second pictured bus is a 1950s AEC Reliance from England with Burlingham Seagull coachwork. AEC made excellent mid-engine buses and coaches - I have fond memories of going on school trips in an AEC Reliance that would routinely do 90 MPH down the long slopes off the South Downs. Rubbernecker windows are OK in cooler climates, but imagine having them in California in summer! One ECW-bodied Bristol MW in which I often traveled had so many leaks in its top windows that us passengers used our umbrellas inside when it was raining outside!
