Tom Wright, a builder near San Diego has come up with a fun use for bumper cars. This former Long Beach Pike amusement park Bumper car (one of 7 ) were in a trash heap. He rescued them and created these little fantasy vehicles. They were originally powered by Harley motors but they rattled like heck and Tom replaced them with 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.
