A motoring enthusiast has built a bus capable of hitting more than 350mph.

The yellow American-style school bus has been fitted with a jet engine from a Phantom fighter plane, allowing it to reach up to 367mph.

Paul Stender and his team from Indy Boys Inc, based in Indianapolis, USA adapted the bus which uses a full tank of 150 gallons of fuel in just one quarter-mile run.

Mr Stender, 43, said: "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. "

The sense of humor on this guy is awesome.

I'm sure when Stender came up with the idea of building his jet bus, he was on drugs. LOL.
