Your Li'l Yella School Bus ain't got shit on mine



























Ran across this at the Kmart parking lot in Ceres. Powered by a Chevy smallblock, this fucker moves out pretty good. The old boy that owns it uses it to raise money for charity - March of Dimes and local private and charter schools - and has raised over a million bucks in the past 6 or 7 years selling rides, photo-ops and die cast models.
If he really wanted to bring in the bucks he should have bicycle helmets, knee and elbow pads and restraints as props for the photo-ops - hell, I'd have felt right at home then.

Is that a short bus? Where is the wheelchair lift?

We rode that thing around the Hanford race track once. Kids loved it.

People love monster trucks, hell, I used to. Up the road in the 'tourist trap' at the Gateway To The Smokies they have a couple places that give monster truck rides, and they do well.
