9/22/15: added non functional mirrors, added stop sign, added "school bus" on front and rear, activity bus and private bus versions
Update 7/2/15: converted the sounds to mono so that they will change with camera distance, also fixed starter sound, you need to delete the old file before installing this one
I decided to make a 3D model of my favorite school bus (in order to 3D print a 1:160 scale model) and the 3D model came out good, so I decided to use it to make my first vehicle comes with first person view, 72mph top speed (4th gear), interior, and lights; uses the Amtran RE chassis that BlueBirdBusCo started work on; I'm probably going to drive it around a lot because the IC RE is my favorite bus
Things to watch out for:
-the wheels/suspension are really bouncy, so try to take it easy on the bumps
-the turning radius is rather large, typical of a rear engine school bus
-it flips if you turn really hard (obviously)

EDIT: I got written permission from BlueBirdBusCo, he said it's OK that I used his chassis, please put this back up
