Default Neet to get away? Get a bus!

My dad, bro, and myself, along with a few members of our softball team threw together some extra cash to get ourselves a means of transportation... A 1985 Ford E350 bus, 6.9L diesel ($$$ouch$$$).

Ahh... so I take it the "idi ot" was intentional by a troublemaker?

I think it would be a safe bet to say that. Knowing his kids though it was probably one of them.

9 windows x 65mph = AC right???

edit: I forgot... Almost all the little tabs on the windows that you have to squeeze together to open them are broken... I guess our AC is gonna have to involve the placement of coolers in the room we left behind the back row of seats.

will it do 65

you could also come up with an evaporative cooling system on the windows, that would be cool.

or even do some hacking on the front of the bus portion
