a bus book!

hello all! well, I recently finished my trip around america in a converted 71 passenger bus. I was inspired by the electric mayhem bus from the muppets (why are there no pictures of that anywhere!) and a childhood dream. it was a great time. and I have since become obsessed with buses! I have started to collect photos and stories of buses that I hope use in conjunction with my stories and photos to create a coffee table book (I know there are others out there, but really, can you have to many coffee table books on converted buses?!). I already have pictures of buses in new zealand, australia and south africa! I am looking for volunteers to tell me their bus stories and to take some pictures that maybe someday I can compile into a book! please respond! thanks!

wonderful! I am in the process of creating a short list of questions and double checking on copyright issues with people's photos, etc. I am sure this will be a slow but enjoyable process for me. I will keep all posted and send out the war cry when ready (although anyone else interested, please let me know, so I have a general idea!).
and in terms of the electric mayhem school bus (the bus, that for me, inspired it all!) a true classic, most enjoyable in the first muppet movie but, I think, most visable in the post-henson muppets in space movie. p.s. I inquired to the muppet company when originally trying to figure out how to fund said bus project, and I am convinced I talked to mean grouchy muppet monster on the phone. she said: the electric mayhem bus is copyrighted, just like you can't make a kermit pupet, you also can't make a mayhem bus. I responded (in tears, I admit): but you can make a pupet, and you can make a bus. and so I did.

You can make your bus look just like the muppet bus, you just can't profit in any way from it.
