Both of those bay buses are customized Dickie Toys buses. I have the wild westerner one, but stock they have no drivetrain or working lights.

I've been contemplating a flying one. Anyone know of a lexan RC body?

I'll have to pick up a Dickeys toys one since it's not only a bay, but an early bay! Very Happy
