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.

It is a beauty, but, those high windshields are real heat makers in hot weather, nice in cold weather though.
