That's a sure way to ruin a perfectly good Prevost. Good Luck, TomC

Admittedly, it looks monstrous, but if all those strange shapes on it are just for integrations of some fantastic devices, it would be okay.  Like maybe it transforms and is capable of fighting Godzilla or something.

I wonder whether they know they need a permit to be wider than 102"?

And here's the Toad:




(Unless you happen to know about these vehicles you won't know that this is one of a batch of Land Rover 101s (forward control military Land Rovers), that appeared in the Judge Dredd film. The re-styling was actually designed by Land Rover themselves (and see the Land Rover badge on the side). I think 20 or so were built, and after the film was finished they were all auctioned off and many ended up with private owners who drive them on the street and take them to shows etc.)

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.

Perhaps it not too late for that PREVOST. At least it's not as bad as this...http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/tfblack/tfblack1206/tfblack120600027/14188731-abandoned-school-bus.jpg
