Welcome to my madness. This was the impulse buy to end all impulse buys. I've always wanted to get an RV and fix it up to be the ultimate roving party machine. I've just never liked the boxy look of most of the ones that I've seen. They either look like a van with a camper parked on top, or like an old school bus. I wanted something funky. When I passed this thing on the side of the road, it was love. It was just quite possibly the most funkadelic looking machine I'd ever seen.
Basically, the idea behind the party bus was to have a vehcile that you can take to
concerts and take on road trips, etc. We had great plans for it, my room-mate and I, but the lack of time, and the small
amount of use we got out of it, nothing much got done. Besides, it was a cool vehicle to have and drive just like it was.
The interior on the thing was actually in pretty decent shape. It would have needed a little work to make it funkadelic, but we were going to try to do it up with the funkiest 70's style we could find. Some nice beads and some disco lights. As for the general condition of the vehicle, it was in great shape. It was well cared for and ran perfectly.
Ammenities currently in the bus.
And of course, if the bus went as planned, we would have given a name, and assign the
slogan we used in college, painted on the side
How can I rent the Shagbus, and other interesting questions.
We were able to install the 21" TV in the front living area and sucessfully turned the shower in to a 2-keg keger-a-tor. There are now two taps that stick out the side and one that is on the inside. It all runs flawlessly off of a CO2 system. The shower has been modified to support the weight and keep about 8 bags of ice around it.
Thats my friend Scott holding the bus up.
The Bus was an amazing hit on its maiden voyage this weekend to the Jimmy Buffett concert. The way it got dirty, made me realize we need to re-think some of the upgrades we had planned. We were going to try to modernize it, but now the plan had turned to emphasizing the 70's style of the thing.
This (below) was what we originally wanted to do (with house paint and rollers), but now the plan is to take 8 gallons of different colored paint to the Phish show, and have people there paint what they want on it.....
