OK, I can imagine the batteries being in the usual place under the driver's seat, but where in the heck is the fuel tank? Also, I bet the driveshaft is less than a foot long.

A bit of work there ... and very nicely done.

I'd like to know the artist's inspiration or motivation.

Probably bent the full length drive shaft and said "screw it, I'll shorten the bus and make it work."


Who knows.... It coulda all started with a bad rear U-Joint!
"U-Joints!?!?! We don't need no stinkin' U-Joints, hold my beer and watch this!"
