Fort Valley

I'm in the town of Fort Valley in south-central Georgia today, the town where school buses are built.  This one's only half-done, but workers can still drive it around the shop.  

In case you were told otherwise, there's still manufacturing going on in the USA.

This bad-ass black bus with its high-placed windows looks like it was built for transporting prisoners for a military or prison client.

I'm told this vintage school bus was featured in the movie Forest Gump.

Speaking of vintage, this one's from 1937.

It was a sunny, breezy day today with a high in the upper 50s, a good day to tour a Georgia bus factory.
