That's quite typical of buses here actually. More of a challenge would be the upper windscreen on one of these:





Fully-glazed fronts seem to be in vogue at the moment:





I've seen double-decker buses with fully glazed sides as well, but I can't find any pictures of one at the moment

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
