I remember those Chrysler Corporation ads in the Fall of 1956, when they introduced the tail-finned, 1957 "Forward L ...

Had a big surprise when I came out of the Subway at Forest Hills, yesterday...an articulated on the Q-64...

What a great clip! That bus was clearly a GM Coach...not sure of the model, but IIRC, the ones with the 'bullet' tails were powered by a Buick straight 8 engine.

We had the 'tachs' on our PD-4104 and PD-4106 coaches....besides putting in the charts, you also had to wind up the clock, and set the time, if necessary. And submit the charts along with the trip rep ...
