Hi there!

Is any newGRF with american-style school buses ? I mean these usually long hood buses with long chassis.

There was one. And it had just one bus. And it was horribly drawn.

Nothing special... i speak about long nose schoolbuses, something like these:

Former schoolbuses are in regular use and they are very common in Latin America, US and Canadian schools export their old yellow schoolbuses in Latin American countries after one decade. They are an alternative and an economical choice instead of buying a new bus. Sometimes converted to railbuses, but usual not. I think this kind of ex- shcoolbuses are a nice idea for the Tropical Climate of openTTD.

This should probably be bumped over to the Graphics Development forum.

Iandix started drawing a bus in 2006. Purno drew up a few schoolbuses to go with it. Mart3p released a NewGRF but I don't know whose sprites he used. And despite some controversy Iandix did release a NewGRF himself before he left the community.

Lilman424 released a bus but didn't get far with refining it.

I doubt they're on GRF Crawler. Almost nobody uses it anymore. :(
