eBay Find: A Street-Legal Bumper Car
Whenever we went to an amusement park, or the a carnival would come to town, there was always one ride we couldn’t wait to go on. Being fellow car guys, it isn’t hard to guess what we’re talking about. The bumper cars were always the ride we wanted to go on firrst, though even as adults there is a certain childish appeal to smacking into each other with essentially low-speed go karts. Too bad we can’t do that on our morning commute.
Well if you don’t mind driving a Dodge Colt, you can rekindle those childhood memories with this cool/ridiculous street-legal “bumper car.” Oh yes, someone went there, and best of all, it’s still available, failing to meet its eBay auction reserve.
The seller gives no indication as to what possessed him to build this one-of-a-kind ‘84 Colt, but we can say that its the best street-legal bumper car we’ve ever seen. A one-piece fiberglass body makes it look like the real deal, and we believe the seller when he says that this car is a real head turner. Impossible to ignore this ride.
We can see quite a few perks to driving this bumper car everyday. First off, it has the fun-and-peppy 1.6 liter turbo engine, returning 34 mpg according to the seller. Also, because it is a 1984 Colt surrounded by extra bodywork, your insurance company might give you a discount. Finally, you’ll be a real hit with all the single moms whose kids love your bumper car. Just saying, this is one Colt that might be a worthy investment.
