I like the buffalo look myself(I am biased), but the tall windsheield could have helped save the GM(If they had wanted to).

The body lines of that Buffalo (we call them decks in the NY/NJ area) look very similar to the proposed design of the RTS-based inter-city coach, which never went into production.

You mean this GM Intercity prototype?

Does the exhaust really end in the inside of the engine compartment instead of at the bottom of the bus?

I was wondering the same thing myself. If it does, what a hack job.

There are three kinds of people in this world....those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those that just wonder what the heck is happening. Which one are you?
