Someone will have to tell those plants that they cannot hang out of the windows when the bus is in motion. LOL

That is a great idea! Now for a drivable one to take to the farmer's market. Or a mobile pot shop for those legal states! Salad bar?

It sure is a unique application. It would sure be fun to make it run.

But would it be street legal with that roof?


I'm fairly certain, even though it's in VA, that my underwriter would say no to this one real fast. I shared it with them just to find out, but it did make me think of a serious question about skylights, which I've also asked about.

It that Tufftex is installed well (and it looks like it is), it can handle the attendant winds of driving speeds. It's really good stuff, and it looks like probably about $300 worth of that alone.

Of course, your insurance agent may not see it that way.

Not something I'd want to own or drive but its legal.
I don't know of any law saying there has to be a roof on the vehicle. At least in the southeast.

Not for sale anymore. Maybe I am crazy but we bought it.

Engine and trans are out. At 545, and 7.3 that is worn out. Basically a core. That is not part of the deal, and not inclined to pursue them.

That's a darn nice greenhouse, and your neighbors will love you for it.
