Street-Legal Bumper Cars Are A Carnival Nightmare Come True

Illustration for article titled Street-Legal Bumper Cars Are A Carnival Nightmare Come True

Gasoline-powered street-legal bumper cars are the perfect convergence of any car guy's adult and childhood fantasies. Now one San Diego mechanic is custom building a collection of gasoline-powered and completely street-legal (and registered) bumper car cars. He outfits the vintage shells with 750cc Kawasaki bike engines capable of doing more than simply bumping other real cars in real traffic.

I'm thinking some sort of modified Jacob's Ladder to give the proper sparking effect atop the pole.

Or perhaps a Van De Graff generator to give intermittent static sparks.
