Party buses and limousines

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

Good day…We are going to switch directions a little and talk about in the design elements of the party buses and limos.  Typically I am more focused on the DIY design elements around the house but thought I would throw you a curve ball today.

So I was in a buddies new stretch limo the other day and it got me thanking about the cinrdilbe amount of ingenuity that takes to make a stretch limo and then on top of that make it sexy for the end user.  Fitting 18 or 20 people in in one vehicle is tall order no matter what you are in.  Lol ….. Unless it is a yellow bus but we are not going to go there.

What does it take to turn a standard H2 hummer into a stretch limo??

Short answer…. A lot

These things have to be cut in half, stretched,and attached to custom frames.  It takes a pretty ingenious person to make all that work from a design perspective.  Before we even get into the interior design and seating layout of a limo or party bus, it take a ton of mechanical know how and engineering just from a functionality stand point.

After talking about building one… i would not even like to think about driving one.  I would like to think I could drive about anything but, I think I Would not enjoy piloting a limo in these down town areas.  I suppose one could get used to it but its not likely not my cup of tea.

So anyway where was I?

Back to the design talk… that s why your reading right?

So on the interior the LEDs and lighting are killer.  They are design to make it feel much bigger than they actually are.  Not that a stretch limo is small by any means but 18 people  can make most spaces feel pretty small.

The interior are designed around fun… I think I was having a better time by just stepping in.

Everything from the wet bar to the stereo is about partying down.  I think I counted at least 5 subs  and speakers all over that sucker.  The nice black leather seating was what you would expect in a luxury vehicle of that stature.

 

I was surprised at how hard  it was to set up in it though.  I would  bet there would be a certain cliental that would struggle getting up there, but all the same it is probably not design for that demographic.

So there a re a couple of talking points about the complexities of luxury transportation and limousines We will be back on the normal speed of things on my next post bu thought I would shake things uimousines.p a bit.

Bye
