Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

this is actually the 3rd time...but who's counting??

today we're doing a little better....up to $2,025 after 9 bids. too bad that number doesn't multiply by 10 every day of the auction! lol

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

well, she's up to 3,500 and somethin....still a long ways from 25K

i appreciate people trying to help me out, but please don't bid just to artificially inflate the price of the bus, thanks.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

if the bus doesn't sell this time around, i am seriously considering trying my hand at limo service. even with fuel @ $5/gallon it's unlikely that i'd burn more than $100 worth of fuel in an evening of driving people to/from the clubs. If i could make 500-1000 a nite it might be worth while. there are other costs also, like my cdl, $4 million in insurance (or 2, i don't remember) plus i have to register with the state as a charter bus, and get commercial registration. and get a federal DOT number.

lots of hoops to jump through....and they all cost $$

edit*
Quote:
An applicant shall acquire the following insurance coverage of liability for acts or omissions of the applicant as a motor carrier of passengers:

(a) Bodily injury and property damage liability insurance with a minimum combined single limit of $5,000,000.00 for all persons injured or for property damage.
it's $325 to get registered with the state as a charter bus

the penalty for not registering or not following the other rules is a max of $500....what are the chances of getting caught?

in a jacuzzi bus with flames painted down the sides? Pretty good, I'd say.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

we know your GF is hot, but how come there is no actual pictures of the jacuzzi in the e-bay listing, after all that is the big seller. i'm sure you wanna keep your girl.
take out the pic with you and the trophy and the dirty laundry and post some pics of the jacuzzi and sell the jacuzzi.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

that's a good point...i never even realized there weren't photos of the jacuzzi in the ad. i can't edit it now though, have to save that for another day

and he's right, that's not my g/f, she's a bus girl.

there are 50 people watching my ebay ad....i hope a few of them plan to actually bid near the end.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

I'm pretty sure you can add pictures after an auction has started... I see it all the time.

Might be worth your time to do it

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

tried to add photos and apparently can't do that after there are bids. what a goof...who would put an ebay ad of their jacuzzi bus on ebay and not include a photo of the jacuzzi?

auction ends tomorrow and it's only up to 5K

there is good news...some guy who owns an exotic limo company in ohio seems very interested in aquiring the bus.
