Is this the new federal testing standard for bus conversions?

Nick, how fast do you think the bus had to be going to get that launch? Amazing how evenly ballanced the bus was, as it was flying, lvmci...

So much for "No buses were harmed during the filming of this commercial." Looked like a nice fishbowl until they destroyed it.

I know some folks like old buses due to nostalgic value, but the reality is a Fishbowl is probably worth about scrap value these days.  I don't see this as a great loss.  I suspect a lot of us here would recommend a newbie go with a highway coach instead of a transit because a highway coach is generally easier to convert.
