Street Legal

Are you getting to an age where you wonder if your driving skills are as sharp as they should be, or have a parent that you worry about every time he/she gets behind the wheel? This software might be just the ticket for you.

If that doesn't do it for you, maybe one of these will:

What do you do with old Bumper Cars?

Occasionally a bright light of awesome renews the spirit. Street-legal bumper cars do just that.

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. He’s 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 Harley motors but they rattled a lot and Tom replaces 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.
Only seven? All I want is one... okay?

I want one! They are much more awesomer than a Shriner car.
