The Bobby Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee created a truly special centerpiece for their rooftop pool area. The hotel teamed up with the Hemphill Brothers Coach Company to turn an old Greyhound bus into a lounge. The bus features custom hydraulic doors by Schweiss Doors to protect its interior from the elements.
THE BEST Buses
Torsus’ rugged bus is designed for carrying passengers in challenging terrain. It’s powered by a 6.9L MAN diesel engine with 4WD and locking differentials, and rides on massive off-road tires. With 15.7″ of ground clearance, and parabolic leaf springs, it can navigate rough surfaces while carrying up to 35 passengers and gear.
R/C enthusiasts monsterchannel24 got their hands on a diminutive 1/87-scale model of a classic Volkswagen T1 microbus from Carson Modelsport. It looks really adorable tooling around a tiny town, and then racing a few of its brethren. The model is available with or without windows, and in a version that pulls a trailer.
Another fantastic LEGO kit, this 1686-piece CREATOR set lets you build a model of one of London’s iconic double-decker buses. It’s got detailed signage, plenty of interior seating on both levels, a removable roof, a spiral staircase, and little objects left behind by passengers.
