Received this in an email:

Remember driving the bumper cars at amusement parks or
a fair, don't you? They were so much fun.....
Well, now what do you do with old Bumper Cars?



(and check out the license plates!)

These little beasties are street legal.

They run on either Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines and co-opt vintage bumper car bodies
into the most awesome form of mini-car we've seen in too long. There are seven of these little
monsters floating around California and they're all the creation of one man, Tom Wright, a builder
in the outskirts of San Diego who figured the leftovers of the Long Beach Pike amusement park
needed a more dignified end than the trash heap.

They were originally powered by two cylinder Harley Davidson Motorcycle engines but they rattled like heck because of the two cylinder Vibration and Tom replaced them with four cylinder Honda or Kawasaki 750's and a couple have been measured as capable of 160 MPH, which is terrifyingly fast in machines with such a short wheelbase.

By the way, they are almost indestructible in accidents!
