Robot Beaver Bus

Yes, this is the Robot Beaver Bus, a coast to coast project to give kids a chance to build robots that then do art! There's much more on their Web site and various social medias. Start here:

But the bus! A classic 1962 Western Flyer, with a straight 6 Red Seal gas engine. The bus was picked up a few weeks ago from the Parry Sound, ON area, where it had lain idle for several years. But it is running and gets over the road at highway speeds (except on hills, where it crawls) and consumes about 30 liters of gasoline per hour in doing so. Love the headlights.
