I love the names and mottos and icons on our buses. There's one called "Love and Jope" which doesn't quite work in Spanish or English, but you get the idea. I recently drove behind a bus that proclaimed in big type, No es culpa mia, it's not my fault. Decided to pass him quickly before he could live up to the slogan. And my all-time favorite is a bus with Jesus on the back mirror, in his crown of thorns, like the 2nd photo here. Underneath a motto: Salí con tu mujer, I went out with your woman. That reverence and cheeky irreverence, cheerfully combined - muy Salvadoreño.
