Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

I appreciate the suggestions but i'm way over budget. Like 30% over budget, so spending more $$ isn't really an option right now.

i relisted the bus for a 1 week auction with lowered buy it now and prominent "low reserve price"

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...228805111&rd=1

we'll see what happens this time around.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

thanks! apparently nobody on ebay thinks so....the auction just ended and the bus didn't sell for the 2nd time in a row. I think i'm gonna try my hand at a little under the table limo-service.

Best of luck. You never know, the limo thing might just take off and go like gangbusters. And the great part about it is you still have a helluva nice bus.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

Just my two cents, if your going to try to sell it again on ebay or if you are going to do a limo service, i think that a more "party-like" exterior would be key. Don't get me wrong what you have looks very nice, but the people who are going to be investing $34,000 aren't going to be your weekend drivers, they are going to be a limo service most likely and needing a head turning exterior, because that is their billboard if you will... I could be wrong, i don't know. but i like to try to help.

I was surprised you didn't do your typical black and flame paint job on it.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

we were throwing this idea around but out of our college budget... may be something you are interested in though (not sure if it is even practical), but some blacklights on the bottom of the bus pointed up along the sides enclosed with plexy glass (spell?) and sealed up real tight then paint designs maybe a flame or two with that blacklight paint you were talking about

Start your own adult web-site and call it "Bang-Jacuzzi-Bus", pick up a bunch of girls and make them do some interesting stuff in front of your camera then, after it gained some popularity, put the bus back on ebay.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

I agree on the paint job thing. I know you're over budget, but if you're going to sell it, or if you're going to do the party bus thing, it's going to need a paint job! Also, I don't know what the laws up there are like, but here in Oklahoma, vehicle laws are pretty relaxed. We don't have inspections or anything. However, they just cracked down on a bunch of party buses around here. I think there was only one of them that was legal, safe and legit. To do it here, you'd need a business license, CDL, strict inspections, and VERY expensive insurance if you can even get it. Don't forget about all of the idiots you'd be hauling around that are drunk and don't care if they are tearing up your bus or puking, urinating, or worse in it. It doesn't have a bathroom either! One thing about drunk idiots, is that they will find somewhere to go. Just my advice.
