Once upon a time, motor vehicles — even mundane busses — had an art deco detail to them you simply don't see any more. This GMC "Silverside" — likely from the late '40s — is a great example of this. The giant circle smack dab in the middle would illuminate to indicate the bus was about to make a stop. Designed and built exclusively for Greyhound bus lines, GMC would later make the Silverside available for custom order. A couple were even built as motor homes.
