Chicken Bus vs Mini Bus

On the right you can see your standard chicken bus, an old Bluebird school bus body with a paint job as juiced up as the truck motor that's been dropped in. How many Guatemalans can you fit on a chicken bus? One more. The max I've seen on one was probably close to 85, but your average ride doesn't tend to have more than 50 or 60.
On the left you can see a similarly tricked out mini-bus, usually an old Mercedes 15 passenger van that can easily hold 28-30 human beings at a pop. But more on that later....
