That's not even a skoolie- looks like a legit school bus- complete with all markings.

Bet that driver gets called-in for a P test.

This is how you do it: And he didn't even scrape his mirrors. Obviously with a good ol' Detroit 6V92 nothing's impossible . . .

Since school buses are built a few inches narrower than a coach we should be able to do that easy.

He made a minor adjustment but otherwise is was a straight line.

Camera man needs some work. Should have jumped on the roof and stuck his head thru one of the hatches. That would have scared the piss out of everyone.
