CAR enthusiast Jerry Bowers wants to keep kids in school – with a customised hot rod SCHOOL BUS. His unusual creation.

Called The Shortcut High Bus, combines the body of a 1949 Ford school bus which he customised to fit a Cadillac Eldorado frame. It took Jerry, from Virginia, USA five years to create the custom low-rider and now he uses it to promote education for children.
Under the bug-catcher air intake is a chromed and polished small-block Chevrolet dressed for show and go. Dual Edelbrock carburetors on top of a Blower Shop supercharger and Weiand intake manifold force-feed fuel and air into the 355 CI V-8 with a Mallory Sidewinder distributor that lights up the horsepower fire.
Along with wife Brenda, Jerry drives the bus to charity events, car shows and schools and always has a positive message attached.
