Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

about 7 hours to go, and the bus is only up to $5,100

it's had 16 bids, there are 58 watchers, and the ad has had only 6,344 visitors. Last time i think i had well over 10K visitors on the counter....

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

maybe displaying your reserve is driving people away... they figure if I'm not going to bid 25K why bother bidding... may get interesting at the last minute though you never know.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

Try listing it in the stripper magazines or each out to some a the smaller bands touring witha decent budget it should sell bands and strippers hanging out in it is a home run.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

well, didn't have much luck selling the bus 3rd time around, so i've been using it instead. Playing with the bus is way more fun than selling it! ok...i'd rather sell it...but i have been having a lot of fun with it lately. Had her in the 4th of july parade too

here are some photos fro mthe past few weeks....

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

i haven't used this bus much, but we took her out for our 5th year at the "woodward dream cruise" classic car cruise in detroit michigan. They claim there are millions of spectators. Woodward ave runs about 20 miles from the town of pontiac to downtown detroit. anyhow.....

here is a video



and a couple of photos

A bus with flames and a jacuzzi inside, driving it in a classic car parade, with bouncing, scantily-clad young women drinking beer. No fun at all!

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

i'm just putting the finishing touches on the bus' ad. I'm going to put her on ebay once again starting tonight (sunday) @ 930pm edt.

Super low reserve price of $10K this time around. That's a lot less than i have into it, but i really want to sell the bus and move onto my next project. I just bought a house.....and i'm preparing to buy a 2nd house...so i could use an extra $10K.

for jacuzzi bus V i think i want a short bus on a big chassis. I'm thinking the biggest bus i can get with a gvw under 26K so i don't need a cdl to make it a limo bus. I think there is some money to be made there, but a lot fewer hoops to jump through if you keep it under 26K pounds.

i'll post a link to the ebay ad in a few hours.....

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

If you drive for hire in CA, you need a cdl if your vehicle is rated for more than 9 pax not including the driver. I've heard in other states it's 14 pax. I would check your state laws before you start. Our commercial enforcement guys here don't have a sense of humor.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV

Yeah, good luck!

I've spread the word on a couple of other fora (I don't know if anyone will be interested enough to bid, but I was hoping it would stir up some viral advertising for you), so my fingers are crossed for you ...
