I was driving back from NYC in the rain when i noticed this bus coming up fast in the rear view mirror. I wasnt about to get passed by a bus so i sped up to 90, and this BUS was still following me. He flashed his high beams at me and i was thinking... bus? wtf. anyway at this point i was going 105 and i lost him.

Thats is stupendus . Only possible, if it was a drag event, even then, the bus needs to be pumping more than 3000 ft/lb torque. Buses have too much drag to just 1/4 in exotic times :P . STILL in the end then, it is not a bus, just the shell of the bus on a frame. ALSO, buses do not have light weights. May be compared to other buses but that is. Do you even have any idea, what are you talking about.
humm so that school bus in auto trader would be a good buy. you just need to get your hands on like an old ww2 bomber engine the big ones. like the b29's supercharged, air-cooled, 18 cyl, 3,350 cubic inches ( 55 liters). 2,200 to 2,800 hp horribly inefficient by todays standards but man that would be one fast bus
