Everything but the same old cars

Bumper Car Escapes Midway

Posted by Mike Bumbeck On March - 24 - 2009

bumper_carWhile this may appear to be some sort of photographic trickery, the bumper car shown here is actually moving under its own power. The man behind the wheel restored this genuine midway-style bumper car, and installed a small gasoline engine in place of the original electric motor. Paul claims a blistering top speed of 25 miles per hour. If the cadre of super scientists could figure out a working wireless electrical power transmission network, one could re-install a more powerful electric motor and hit the accelerator down the Nikola Tesla high velocity electric motorway.
