10/27/11 65 W, 1 I - + 7 - 5 Crossnore Fire Department Shuttle Bus


Came across this vintage Ford school bus last week while cruising through the community of Crossnore, a wee town in Avery County, North Carolina. Same is labeled as a fire department shuttle bus. For those inclined toward light bars and strobes, take a few deep breaths. It's okay for some things to be unadorned. Click to enlarge:
 





They use buses like these to shuttle visitors up and down US 221 between the parking areas in Linville and MacRae Meadow during the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. To my knowledge they’ve never been used for emergency operations, though I’d bet CVFD would make them available if asked.
