    I was looking on Flickr and found the UPS School Bus. I've never seen one out here, so I thought I'd share.

    That is a driver training car. We all rode in that and took turns driving back when I was hired. That was like day 4 in the 5 day class

    We have one of these "Special Brown Busses" @ the general office in my district, it is assigned to a mechanic I know in New Hampshire. My first week with the company I was training in Southern New Hampshire and went out on a road call with my supervisor in the "Buss". I was in my training week, Being new and all I thought wow this thing is awesome and when can I take it around town!:happy2:

    Looks like you could deliver out of it like an ice cream truck. Pull up to a street, announce over the loud speaker" delivery for 123 Smith ave, come and get it please".

    We used to take our road tests in an old P-600. It had the bulkhead removed and had a couple of bench seats installed in the back. No picture windows though. I don't know what they use around here now.

    hondo promoted to mediocrity

    I thought the windows were put there by Jim Casey so he could observe and refine loading and package selection methods.:wink-very:

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    They were actually put there so that he could watch the demise of a delivery company which used to focus on customer service.

    Same here. I thought, wow this truck handles pretty nicely and shifts well, what a top notch company I belong to.

    Then reality hit the next week in the form of a P-50.:surprised:
