    I haven't seen that one before, pretty nice. The Minnesota Transportation Museum has a few old city buses they occasionally bring out in the summer months: http://www.mtmuseum.org/cl***icbuses.shtml

    Reminds me of the GM Futureliner that the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States (NATMUS) owns and shows around the country. It is headquartered in Auburn Indiana, behind the old Auburn/Cord HQ downtown. In the winter it is stored in Zeeland MI (where it was restored).

    FWIW, If you've not been to Auburn and you're into cars you need to go during their ACD festival.

    ...and finally, my photo of my car and the Futureliner from the Flint Sloan Museum show (this is the same show that John Sawruk came to last summer that was in Smoke Signals awhile back).

    In case anyone is interested, the TV show "Bitchin' Rides" on the Velocity Channel (a Discovery channel network) will showing its 2-hour season finale on Tuesday, October 28, from 9-11 PM EDT. It will be featuring the restoration and probable customization of one of the surviving Futureliners.
