But they make a version without the lights. I'm just not sure we're ever going to see those. I'll ask my mom how much it costs her district to buy a bus (she's been on the school board for many rounds of bus buying).

According to Thomas' website, $475 to $550, parts and labor (when performed by a Thomas Built authorized service center). Seems awfully cheap to me - I wonder if the factory is subsidizing the job when "their" people do it?

Heh, I did a double-take at first, and thought that was a notch too, but it's just the angle the picture was taken. If you look real close you can see the white roofline meet the top of the windshield.
