Wayback when the fastest thing on the roads was this first housebus, the 1929 Chevrolet or The Emerald Gypsy, a 1949 Ford.
The next one is possibly an Austin, then there's a Bedford and the blue one appears to be a Mercedes.
Then there's the Airstream and Mr Sharkey, who's a walking encyclopedia when it comes to vintage housetrucks, informs me that it was built on an Oldsmobile Tornado chassis and was one of GM's production experiments that didn't
do so well.
The vehicle was offered with a V8 gasoline engine or a diesel which was very smoky, unreliable and slow.
That was wayback though.
