"riding on top in one of those Greyhound Scenicruisers"

The Scenicruiser was a 40-foot, split-level bus that was introduced on premium routes across the USA by the Greyhound Bus Company in 1954. With its silver-grey streamlined body and its 360-degree observation deck, it became an instantly recognisable piece of American style. This is not surprising, given that the initial designs were by Raymond Loewy who also designed the Coca-Cola bottle and the Lucky Strike cigarette pack.
