DUBLIN, Ireland, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- An Irish businessman said he is offering Pope John Paul II's Popemobile up for rent to partiers for $324 per hour.

Paddy Dunning said the Popemobile, a yellow Ford Transit van specially adapted for the pope's 1979 visit to Ireland, came with the Dublin Wax Museum when he purchased it a few years ago and he is now planning to rent out the 15-seat vehicle for bachelor parties and other engagements, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.

Dunning said the vehicle will also be made available for charity and sporting events.

"We will be selective about who we rent it out to," he said.
