I've dreamed of building a school bus conversion hotel in the middle of nowhere. Someone could just park them, paint them with different themes, (underwater, outer space, ect.) do them all crazy and put them on air bnb.

I would park clusters of five or six in the shape of a flowers pedals with a large hexagonal covered deck in the center for common space,

just saying, but I'm nuts.

there is a bus graveyard in North GA off 985, that guy will probably buy them...

.. those cars werent destroyed due to EPA programs and marked as such...

they may have been replaced because the city simply didnt want them.. and internally the city may have purposely destroyed thse interceptors.. but im not aware of any federal EPA / Green program that stated old police vehicles were to be destroyed to get grant money ...

I doubt, and I mean DOUBT, not that I know, that they are blacklisted titles. If they were concerned with any EPA issue the engine destruction would be enough. EPA has no regulation with the DMV. If it were that easy, the EPA could just blacklist the VIN, and be done with it. No more operation of the motor on the highway. Now cutting the frame, that one eludes me. I don't think frames cause very much air pollution at all.

read up on the old program cash for clunkers and then tell me the EPA doesnt have interaction with the DMV...

the engines are destroyed so they cant just be pulled out and sold as used and go back on the road... they also destroyed the engines in the cash for clunkers cars.. those were to be destroyed with sand in the oil and run till they stopped.. and did something else to the car but i cant remember what it was...

WHAT!??
Is there any original thoughts anymore? Mine would be cooler.

Maybe I should just bury them half way in the ground near a major highway and make it a roadside attraction. I could call it the school bus ranch or something.

How cool would that be? You don't have to make them run to use as a B&B. Maybe put a barbecue under the hood.

There are a number of B&Bs that already thought of this idea. As individual cabins, while still a vehicle, it skirts around the normal building restrictions.

And..TAXES. As long as it is up on wheels, it is not taxed as an improvement.

I'm guessing a bus B&B would annoy the tax man.

Stationary B&B buses could have all those crazy looking cabins built on to them too.
