Paul Stender and his team in Indianapolis have built a bus with a jet engine capable of reaching a speed of 367mph.

The bus uses 150 gallons of fuel in just a single quarter-mile run. "I built the bus for two reasons. The first is to entertain people because, come on, it's a jet bus," said Stender. "The second, is to keep kids off drugs. Jets are hot, drugs are not."

"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."

Pretty rad bus but I'd say Monster Garage's 'Skool Bus' is way cooler...

"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.
