I was on my way to work this morning and i noticed a big yellow school bus sitting in the front yard of a farm house with a big for sale sign on it. All day at work me and the guy i work with just kind of joked around about how sweet it would be to turn a bus into the ultimate party-mobile.

So anyway on my way home i decided to stop by and see what the guy wanted for this thing.. Its a pretty old bus that looks pretty ****ty on the outside but mechanically runs great. He was asking 5000 for it.

so later me and 4 buddies went back and somehow managed to bargain the guy down to 2000 ( mostly because one of the guys i was with owns an autobody shop and knows his stuff )


So basically me and 3 friends now own a bus which we plan to turn into a party machine. So far some ideas we have are

Outside
- new paint scheme
- tinted windows
- fake blower / wheelie bar
- possibly some old big racing slicks on the back if my buddy can work it out

Inside
- cheap laminate flooring
- ripping the seats out and strategically placing couches and tables
- dance floor
- stripper poles
- bar
- lighting


It sounds pretty retarded and frankly it is. But really most of the stuff we want to put in / on we already have laying around. The only thing that would cost us money is tinting the windows.

EDIT: If anyone has suggestions feel free to throw em out aha

EDIT: Yea ill get pics, its going to take a while to finish though. Ill throw the before pics up in a couple days though

Holy crap, that's awesome!

The inside sounds pretty good, but maybe like shag carpet? But that would be harder to clean if you partied in it a lot. On second thought, laminate flooring is good.

May I also suggest a jukebox or some sort of stereo system?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Ohh yea thats another thing we're actually going to spend a good bit of money on is a bumpin sound system. We want something just retardedly loud, and probably a decent flat screen to put on the wall somewhere to loop some sort of "trance" thing

Get Hydraulics
If you break it, superglue it together, then when your done give it to a friend

That's an awesome idea...

I'm terrible with these kinda things, I'd try and make it bad ass but it would probably either turn into storage space, a library, or some form of rolling dildo shop, but I wish you good luck.

that has been my dream since grade school, the only goal in my life i ever hope to achieve is to pimp a ****ing bus. i love you.

Your modifications sound like they'll wreck it! I mean seriously, unless you're going for schoolbus to gaybus, you might want to rethink your decor ideas.

Here's how you do it:
1) Leave bus as it is
2) Park outside school
3) Wait for children to get on and then lock the doors
4) ...
5) PROFIT

How about a projector onto a pulldown screen? You could hook up a laptop (if you already have one) to show movies or visualizer from iTunes. But if don't have the Laptop already, go for the flat screen.

bahaha i totally had that idea like 2 days ago. how funny would it be if a pedophile stole a school bus and made all the necessary stops? its totally possible. maybe not so funny, more sick and ****ed, but funny enough that i was laughing my ass off.

As long as your bus is as awesome as this.



You'd have to drop a lot of acid to make your bus that cool.

LUCKY, I wish I could get a bus for $2000 ;( Anyway you've got good ideas, and as somebody else said, a jukebox is a must. And a refrigerator/microwave for TV dinners on- the-go. You'll need a way to power them, though... Try to find a way to get an electrical system in there.

Good luck man!
