My Mother-in-law was a Doran.
Allen Dollar-hyde Doran founded the Doran Bus Co.
I found a newspaper clipping that talks about the first run buse's. "The Niemann and Son Bus Line started operations in 1921 shortly after the old street cars were pulled off city streets in the post World War 1 period. The buses were generally "loaded" especially the 5:30 pm run from downtown after stores closed."
Not sure if this has anything to do with the "Mysterious Fuel Tank". I just wanted to pass it along.
