Street Legal Bumper Cars

Apparently it’s somewhat popular in certain vehicle enthusiast circles to modify bumper cars so they are street legal. They use a Kawasaki 750cc motorcycle engine to give them power to hit sidestreet speeds (I doubt these can hit highway speeds, and you probably wouldn’t want to anyway!).

These cars somehow cost $50,000 to retrofit to make them street legal! That’s a lot of money per pound of car…inch of car… cubic foot of car?? How do you quantify a car? One of life’s great mysteries. Anyway, they do look pretty ridiculous, but probably not any more than anyone driving around a giant yellow Hummer these days.
