    Jonathan Shively, Bus Tester

    I recently found this photo of Jon Shively testing his next school bus...

    He does have to get out of those banked turns quickly, however. With no seatbelts, the kids tend to pile up on the downhill side and Jon is afraid of rolling and scuffing up his new bus!

    The real question here is what is Vaughn doing up at 3 in the morning surfing the net looking for bus pictures?

    Looks like the Tour De-Wood 2010 tour bus stuck behind two slowpokes on a L.A. Freeway. What you got, some camera that takes pictures of the future?

    I know a couple of school bus drivers that would love a crack at that track. Just think how fast they are going to keep that one car on the track. Wonder what kind of G forces there are.

    Do you think so?? I don't know about american kids but spanish ones would be behind the driver, giving him a hard time because he was going too slow
