This pictures and video don't do that bus justice, it looks even better in person. Me and a few friends went to Jasons this past weekend, the bus looks incredible.

Nice work Jason.

someone measured a bottle with a veneer caliper and used a hole saw to cut all the holes accordingly.....someone should have measured cans with the same device BEFORE they drilled all the holes. oh well.....no-one is perfect.

i'm thinking $25K for the reserve and $55K buy it now.

no, i think i would try to build another bus in the 10-12K range like this one and set the rest of the $$ aside for a down payment on a house....or after i sell a couple more buses just be able to by a house in cash.

I don't think 55K is a realistic amount to expect...but then again i never would have imagined in my wildest dreams the last one would go for 18.5.

with everyone thinking recession perhaps there is no longer a market for jacuzzi buses and the last one i sold was just a fluke.....it'll be interesting to see what happens.

Can I borrow your harem should I ever need to sell something?

DizzyIzzy 03-05-2008 10:28 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
Well I just want the harem. They would make any bus look worth $50,000.

lapeer20m 03-06-2008 08:44 AM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
one of them is my g/f, but i met the rest of them simply because i have a bus with a jacuzzi inside. If you buy this bus, then you too will find a harem of beautiful women. That's actually what i'm selling here.. the ability to attract women.


We took the bus to the club last saturday nite and my g/f helped me round up good looking girls who volunteered to get their photo's taken. Then there is the girl from the last bus videos...i met her a while back, and she actually does some real modeling.

i hope to be wealthy enough one day to actually pay girlies for helping me out.

I remember seeing the post. "potential victim"....I like it. And a nice victim it looks to be....sitting there unsuspecting....not knowing that maybe, just maybe it'll soon possibly be inundated with wet scantily clad women surrounded by intellectual, handsome, well intentioned men.

with a week and a day left to go, there are 41 people watching, 4,699 views, and the bidding is up to $10,100

hope all goes well.

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
4 days to go, bid is $15,100 there are 50 "watchers" and 7,577 visitors...........the suspense is killing me!

Thats not exactly true, users who are using the same browser, cookies, and computer are counted once. So if you browse at home, work, phone, library, friends computer, have cookies turned off (or clear them), or open a different browser they will all log as another person.

Demonknight 03-12-2008 05:17 PM

as it may be...count me as two..this one and the wifes computer....course she still thinks I'm just checking out the girls...

lapeer20m 03-13-2008 04:04 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
the budget was 10K.....we actually spent about 13K. That includes the price of the bus, 2 plane tickets to arizona, fuel to get the bus home, renting the indoor workspace, all the material for the bus, and a few other odds/ends

perhaps we'd be better served by building an econo-model that we can put only about $5K into and sell between 10-20K....

the counter just clocked 9,000 visitors. there are 57 watchers...hopefully at least a few of them are gonna bid. haven't had any bids in at least the past day or two. price is still at $15,100.

i didn't bid on this bus until literally the last 2 minutes. i hope the final few minutes of this bus turn out to be exciting.

Steve 03-13-2008 04:21 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
Hopefully the reserve is low enough that you don't have to re-list it.

KC10Chief 03-14-2008 10:46 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
22 hours to go and still holding at $15,100. I'm figuring that it will come down to the last few minutes or seconds even.

lapeer20m 03-15-2008 05:50 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
i meant to have the auction end on sunday, i just don't count so good. 10 days from wed is sat....phill just pointed out to me that tonight is saint patties day...UGGG Hope everyone isn't gonna be out on the town tonight instead of at home bidding on my bus. OOPSIES!

3 hours 11 min to go, and 11,085 visitors.....

must be the girl in the bikini...other buses ending right around the same time as mine only have about 1K visitors. The girl in the bikini is my g/f by the way.

lapeer20m 03-16-2008 09:09 AM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
The mighty Casey has struck out.

i was expecting to be much wealthier today

I'm gonna re list later today with a few modifications. If it doesn't sell this time around then perhaps i'll try my hand at limo service for a while. All of my other buses sold on ebay after 2 auctions each. The first one i sold the high bidder couldn't come up with the money, relisted it and got an extra couple thousand $$. The second one i listed a "bus tattoo" for sale with all the bus details the week before i sold the actual bus.

we'll relist for a week and see what happens

pete c 03-16-2008 12:10 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
Didn't your last bus bring about that much?

I think it might be a bad time of year. Maybe it will get more interest in the summer.

One other thing. I would think that a party on wheel like that thing might be really nice to have a bathroom in. If it's used for bachelor parties or whatever, you gonna have a whole lotta drinking going on. You could probably put in a half bath without losing too much space. Also, you ought to look into some sort of paint scheme. It's pretty boring as it is.

I think you should give the limo thing a shot.

Good luck.

phillbus914 03-16-2008 02:41 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
You mean there's not a bathroom in there already?

What's the jacuzzi for?

Elliot Naess 03-16-2008 03:08 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
:D
All right, it's officially Pick-On-Jason-Day.

All that beer and no place to drain it????!!!!

It needs to be an RV type commode, since residential units are not allowed in RVs. Some of those are pathetically small and uncomfortable, but you can also get full size ones like my Thetford Aria in the "tall" version with full size oval seat. The Aria is expensive, but I'd spring for full size commode as they are easier to hit -- specially when the... uh... commodity... is beer.
:D

lapeer20m 03-16-2008 08:57 PM

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"

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

we'll see what happens this time around.

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.

reprobate 03-24-2008 07:12 AM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
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.

bigballsbus 03-24-2008 08:28 AM

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.

Steve 03-24-2008 02:30 PM

Re: Jacuzzi Bus IV
 
I was surprised you didn't do your typical black and flame paint job on it.

bigballsbus 03-24-2008 07:59 PM

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 :lol: then, after it gained some popularity, put the bus back on ebay.

KC10Chief 03-25-2008 08:57 PM

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.
