Tough Indonesian bus drivers don't need a roof or windows

After the story about a Chinese semi driver working without a cab, a Jalopnik commenter sent in this shot showing how bus chassis are transported to body fabricators in Indonesia. Think of it as the ultimate convertible.


Commenter Kukuti says drivers steering open-air bus chassis are a common sight around Jakarta, where the roadworthy coaches are being delivered to outfitters. The trip can take up to 12 hours, which the drivers survive with helmets and whatever they bring for a seat cushion.

Neither rain nor bad roads nor bumper-to-bumper traffic appear to deter these gentlemen, who also enjoy ample space to transport their testicular fortitude.
