That 'shine' is water . That wheelbase does seem awful short..

I agree the wheels do look a little to close. Maybe throw a enough weight in there and drive around doing a wheelie. Ha ha!

Re: 1990 Bluebird Body, GMC chassis 72 Pass. Bus.

I had to look at a picture of it next to mine just to see. It appears that his wheelbase is the same as my 65 passenger as his rear wheels are a window and a half further forward than mine and he has an extra row of seats. I guess that wouldn't be that abnormal. I know my rear axle is nowhere near being maxed out given its 18,000 lbs rating with a 17,400 lbs gross weight with an empty fuel and water tank and just me in it. That would help unload the front a little so they could probably get away with a 12,000 lbs axle up there.
