Can I say the O6? Cause I loved those buses, even if they weren't demos in the traditional sense. I guess actual demo, have to be 0059. Bus was like the top-of-the-line LFSA, really nice with those frameless windows too. [And I never saw the Citaro.]

Hino 951 because I drove it for about 60 seconds, the only time I ever drove a bus in my life. Actually the bus was exceptionally cramped. Very hard to get in and out of seats with no legroom and if I remember, very low headroom. Built for short Japanese people. Good thing we gave it back.

I dont like the Designline Crap. I've said this before, it looks like a beluga whale or a _____________________________________.

It looks disgusting overall. My favorites overall was the Orion VI. Nothing like an M2 with Orion Vl. Those buses were the beast
