no, i just can't bring myself to spend the money. i'm already 3-4K dollars over budget.

saturday i have car show to take the bus to.

i got my signs yesterday, still need to get them put on...The sign guy is awesome, except he doesn't like my flames. he said flames are supposed to have an ebb and flow, some sort of rhythm blah blah blah...he said my flames are like finger nails on a chalkboard. That's the meanest thing anyone has ever said to me lol Sign guy drew me out some spectactular looking flames on paper while we were waiting. He said he'd like to draw out my flames on the side of the next bus for free....actually, he wants me to repaint this bus, but i don't think that's gonna happen. He also said that i don't realize how popular i am. he said that everywhere he goes people know about the jacuzzi bus and that i am becomming an icon.

how's that for flattery?

after this one sells, i guess that means i need to build another bus.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

can you scan the drawing of those flames and post them, so we know too what is considered proper for flames?

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

went to the car show today, and i won first place in my class (all vehicles 1981 and newer, modified)

i don't know how it is around the rest of the country, but michigan being the worlds motor capitol, car shows are a reasonably popular thing. I don't know the official count, but there were definitely hundreds of vehicles there. It was the "southeast michigan autofest" or something like that.

the trophy is about 4 feet tall. here are some photo's.







here's the new jacuzzi sign installed:
