Indianapolis-based motor junkie Paul Stender and his team of vehicle modders called the Indy Boys Inc have created the ultimate anti-fuel economy: a school bus outfitted with a Phantom fighter jet engine, which clocks 367 mph and burns 150 gallons of fuel in just a quarter mile.
"'I built the bus for two reasons. The first is to entertain people because, come on, it's a jet bus. The second, is to keep kids off drugs. Jets are hot, drugs are not...
We do a lot of displays at schools and we are trying to show them there's more to life than sitting in front of computers.'"
I'd say a healthy chunk of the red-blooded American male population would prefer this to a computer. But I've been wrong before.
