haha! i watched that commercial thinking that a logoed bus was going to featured...but alas, nothing. pity!  ;D

ya, i figured focussing only on working type II's in canada would pay a great homage to these old work horses and how they were and are used in our glorious country!! we could start a different thread for all logoed buses, but i vote we keep this one as is due to its unique qualities!  :) :cool:

This is Oscar the talking police bus. The Saskatoon police service used him for educating kids about safety etc. There would be an officer hidden inside that would provide the voice of Oscar and talk to the kids. They used him during the 70's and 80's and was retired from service sometime in the early 90's I believe. Pretty fond memories of seeing Oscar around the city when I was a youngster.

A friend sent me a picture of a double cab that the new dealer in Edmonton (Sherwood Park) has on display in the local mall.
