Souped-Up School Bus Reaches 320 MPH

“The creator of a jet-powered school bus with a 42,000-horsepower engine says he has reached a top speed of 320 mph during test runs in Nebraska.
Paul Stender, a native of Big Bend, Wis., said he and his team created the jet-powered bus in Lincoln, Neb., by taking an F4 engine and building the school bus around it, CBS News reported Monday.


This one goes under the heading “Things we really don’t need.” I can understand pimping a sports car, but a bus?

Stender shows off the bus to school children; I can imagine kids who’ve seen this souped-up bus yelling at their bus driver to go faster.

Most kids are embarrassed to ride in a regular school bus, but the little jerks would love to ride in Stender’s bus.
