It would be tricky to work with the fiberglass body shell but it looks like a good starter base.

And why is that? I can hack holes in the side of my ('glass) shuttle bus with ease-and it has a serious metal framework overhead.

I think it will go for more than a school bus. If you change the color of those horrible seats, you can use it commercially. That will be factored into the price. I think you are still better off with a skoolie. Tennessee seems to have solid buses. Their state law required replacement at 15 years. There will always be buses coming up. Texas looks like they have good buses. The bus I got from Texas is a solid bus and the transmission is tight unlike the one I got from Tennessee. It came with a small book that shows every gallon of diesel that when into the bus. As well as oil changes, windshield wipers, etc.

Having been in the limo business for close to 35 years, you can keep your party bus and STRIPPER POLE. There is no amount of money that would entice me into driving today's snot-nosed, entitled, disrespectful 20 and 30-something punks. Been There, Done That!

oh man!!!! best experience of my life!!!

Only disrespected once with a bunch of south of the border kids headed to a "co-ed Sweet 16 Slumber Party".... they were getting rowdy and trying to rock the limo....
Next stop light, killed the main... sat through 3 stop lights.... turned their power back on, never heard another word out of them!
871 parties and had only that one instance.

I had to go over the "required rules" with every bachelorrette party though

Limousine Rules
My insurance company requires that I go over the rules of operation to every party.
Like everything else that involves fun...
You know, like the amusement park where you have to be "this tall" to ride the ride.
Raise your hand or just point to the other one...
Rule # 1. Who here is a Mean Drunk? you may stay here
Rule # 2. Who here is a Crazy Drunk? I have seat belts for you
Rule # 3. Who here is a Horny Drunk ? I have a place up front for you
Rule #4. If anyone cannot handle their alcohol and wants to remove their shirt... Please alert your driver, so he may assist you by turning on the lights.
Rule #5. The sunroof has to be disconnected for insurance reasons.
Rules #6. Anytime we stop and load or unload the limousine, your driver will take care of opening and closing the door.
Rule #7. If anyone wants to leave the party early and be taken home, please let your driver know, and he will let the rest of the party know that he may or may not be taking you home.
Rule #8. If anyone has a jealous significant other... Give them your driver's number, and silence your phone... I'm case of emergency, that jealous son of a bitch can contact the driver.

Most importantly, I am here to help you with your celebration... Let you have fun and get home safely.
