1930's bus

I saw a bus today in town that was amazingly cool (let me explain) but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. But you guys seem to know everything so let's see.

The manufacturer was two words, first one starting with A. Not Aston Martin. The model name was something starting with c, like Cruiser or something.

The bus looked very old, the whole thing was totally 1930's style. But I've looked up 1930's buses on the internet and they're all much plainer than this, this looked like the flash cars of the late 30's.
The back was sloped down 30's style and the windows were long and thin near the top. On the front was a large plaque of the manufacturer and the model name was in metal sloped handwriting. It was also very long - longer than a lot of modern buses.

I've attached a crappy drawing. Anyone have an idea?

You weren't kidding when you said crappy drawing. Sorry to say that I have never seen a bus like that.

I'm Back?

Nah, although it was just slightly like the fifth one in the
http://images.google.com/images?q=ae...tart=0&start=0
search.

I'm sure the company isn't in that US list either, or the Australian list (I'm in Australia)...or any of the lists actually I think. Possibly it's not even the company name I was reading on the bus itself, but it seemed to be. I should have looked properly when I had the chance - now it's just annoying me. I went back to check if it the bus was still there but it's gone.

But yeah that the only reason I'm interested, I've really never seen anything like it. And the internet doesn't turn up anything either.

And yeah my drawing is crappy but would colouring it in in exciting colours and detail really help? It's less than 1kb in size.

Thanks for your efforts people.

Quite possibly it was customised but if I was, it was a pretty good job.
