School Days by TheMan268 School Days by TheMan268
This is the oldest school bus I have ever seen! I saw it on the back of a lot that sells classic cars. It's hard to see in my photo but there is a Chevy Emblem on the top of the grille support. I was watching The Shawshank Redemption on TV this weekend and saw this very similar bus in the movie. [link]

There is something very post-apocalyptic about this vehicle.

Wow those first three look great! The last one looks a lot like the one in my photo. It's hard to see in my photo but there is a Chevy Emblem on the top of the grille support. :)

I feel if this bus could be re-used, it would look great in a ghost movie. A bunch of murdered kids come pooring out chasing me across the playground.... help meeeeeeee.

That is a sick school bus! I wish I'd gone to school in that.

It deserves to be restored...

Looking at the condition of the grill and front fenders has well has the roof I'm not 100% sure if this is soley a school bus and not a slap together job of several vehicles.

It's a school bus. There's a similar one here:  www.hankstruckpictures.com/pix…

Things rust differently depending on where the rain falls. If it was in a forest, the front was likely in a clearing in the tree canopy and was exposed to rainfall.

Amazing what turns up in the back 40 -- looks like a conversion was done on it at some point, but here's hoping it gets properly restored. Betting it would be a showstopper.
