The Green Machine Conversion project is an exemplary model for building first-class mobile classrooms and educational exhibits using recycled and green materials and powered by renewable and sustainable fuel - SVO, straight vegetable oil.

Recycled from the start. Our prototype project i,,a 1969 GMC "Buffalo" bus began life working in southern California for Airport Service as The Airport Bus until 1984. In August 1984 Bus No. 5902 was purchased by the South Hills Community Church of San Jose. In 2004 this timeless machine was passed on from the church to become the starting point for the Green Machine Conversion project. With less than 50,000 miles on the recently rebuilt diesel engine, this was a prime candidate for conversion to SVO - Straight Vegetable Oil. And although the old girl has already traveled over 2 million miles, she’s been well kept throughout her life.
This grand old coach is now being converted to a world-class self-contained motorhome, running on low emission, recycled waste vegetable oil (WVO) , a solar electric power system and state of the art, wireless digital communications.
