Pretty cool: What to do with OLD Bumper Cars? Unreal results #photos

Begin forwarded message:

What do you do with OLD Bumper Cars?








Yes,  you read that right; 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 replaces 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
