Not Your Ordinary School Bus

This one is (literally) jet-powered:
Powered by General Electric J-79 jet engine straight out of a F4 Phantom fighter jet, the big yellow school bus, which is the largest jet vehicle, does excitingly fast 350mph. This 42,000 hp, 10-foot-high, 35-foot-long bus blasts a 75-foot flame out its exhaust...

The bus driver, who wears a seven-layer Kevlar suit while operating this vehicle, has prior experience driving a jet-powered portable toilet.

One nice thing about Neatorama is that the readership doesn't just pass over items that don't interest them; they actually take the time from their busy day to post messages explaining any defects in the posted material and their personal dissatisfaction with the item. This materially enhances our abilities to tailor future posts specifically to their individual needs. My heartfelt thanks for the feedback.

I think the disconnect it that it's the largest jet "ground" vehicle. It does not fly, and most planes are larger, but nothing that is a land vehicle powered by a jet engine is larger. Nice article-Thanks

Having driven a school bus on a daily basis - I can say that that would probably be safer to drive. Straight route. Less than a few seconds. NO KIDS.

However, I believe that the only item on it which happens to be stock, would be the roof.

Minnesotastan has as much burn in that post as that bus. :P
I usually just throw down that "If you don't like the quality - contribute." and then drop the link for the upcoming queue.

I have to agree with Vonskippy.

It may be theoretically capable of doing 350, but no way it actually got clocked at 350 with the pictured design. You'd need wings/spoilers or something to provide down-draft and keep it all on the ground.
