Hotrod Short Buses

Here are a couple hot rod buses and a Divco milk truck that showed up at the local Goodguys show this weekend. I would love to own the first bus pictured.

Re: Hotrod Short Buses

I really like the looks of that last bus. The "roman" nose it has makes it rather streamlined.

Thanks for the excellent pics!

Re: Hotrod Short Buses

Those are SWEET! Thanks for the pics. Time, money and a place to park is all I need for a couple of those for a collection.

Re: Hotrod Short Buses

That first bus is REALLY nice! Love the color. That old milk van is cool too.

The orange bus with the flames was for sale on Ebay a while back so I just HAD to snag some pictures of it. This is what the interior looks like.







This next one is one of my favorite short buses I've seen. Who would have known that a Cadillac Escolade grille and headlights would look good on old iron. They can have those ridiculous wheels and tires, but I'd take the rest of the bus!
