Where's the hard plastic seat? Used on a '69 School Bus.

Excellent. A very good platform to support lots of safety messages and to show parents how the industry and the operators have worked over decades to steadily improve occupant safety for their children. Show at NAPT?

It would be great to be able to get a copy of these photos to display.

I think that I have ridden in each of the seats or have driven a bus with one of the seats in it; yes, quite a set of picture. [Currently a Sub Driver Neoga, IL and former driver Unit 5 , Normal, IL
