Glacier National Park has Jammers, red tour busses built in 1936-39, by the White Motor Company in Cleveland, Ohio. They are 25 feet long and have a 17 passenger capacity, and the roof is convertible. The 33 bus fleet has been restored.
They were called "Jammers" because they originally had shift transmissions, and the drivers could be heard "jammin" the gears up and down the Park's mountain roads.
In this view is a tunnel constructed with natural rocks for the Going to the Sun Road.

The vertical format is perfect to show the size of the rocks, and the colorful Jammer is great in the composition! Very good light and colors! Wonderful job!

Your composition with the rugged cliffs and the Jammer having just emerged from the tunnel is dramatic, but what is most dramatic is the bright red serving as a strong color highlight, like a chop mark in an Asian scroll.

Very nice format on the shot, showing the height and scale of the mountain, and allowing the bugs to be composed in a perfect spot. You seem to have a lot of very fine vehicles there, great to see and something I enjoy viewing very much. The vivid red color stands out really well against the natural tones.
Cheers as always
PS in Dublin, jammer is a slang word for a stolen car :) it comes from joy riders jamming on the hand brake to make sharp turns .

you have taken a decision to realize your shot in vertical foramt.I think this idea was very good to show the difference of size between the bus and the rocks.Very good contribution to TE.TFS.

Great pov of this tunnel and the Jammers. I just hope those rocks are stable, they look like big enough to flatten the tour bus. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

I see this is a logic continuing of your "Going to the Sun, Glacier National Park" photo. But I think this car reminds me my latest post of the red&chrome car. Excellent composition, good idea do place this red car into the grey rocky background. Well done, perfect sharpness, very nice vivid colors.
Your photo reminds my last trip to Arizona.
Best wishes from NYC!

What a lovely view of one of those antique buses! Great choice of location to get a photo of this bright red bus, surrounded by mostly grey. Thanks!

Red old bus, made by White. Words can play in funny way, yet on picture it gave good scale and contrast to the grey rock with the tunnel.
Green veg.'s also added vivid tone on the scene.
I know White-Motors from the half-caterpillar armored vhicle made through the WW2.
