Photo: An Old New Look

Back when I was growing up, the buses always looked the same - they were all GM New Look buses from the late 1950s, made famous by the one in Speed with the bomb in it. Fifteen years ago they were ubiquitous, but as new models came into service the aging Fishbowls were gradually pulled out of service. Barrie Transit made heavy use of them in the 1990s, and in Toronto they puttered on until 2011, when the last of them were retired from service.

Back in 2008, I caught Toronto's bus #2250 waiting for the light to change at University and Gerrard. It's probably in a scrapheap now.
